This article is biased bull@!%$. I worked for this company for one month, at which time, my trainer fell asleep at the wheel, wrecked, and almost killed me. Did Covenant Transport Take care of me? Let me go home and rest and heal up? NO! They tried to hold me hostage at their nasty "training facility" which is really an abandoned Holiday Inn. I sat there for a week with a broken femur bone, being treated as if I was the one who wrecked their truck. It wasn't until I got a good Tennessee lawyer that I found out they couldn't legally tell me that I had to stay there if I wanted to get medical treatment, so I went home. After I healed they fired me, so I would have "lived" at their "hotel" for a year, had I complied, only to get fired at the end. They wanted me to work for minimum wage shuffling papers while healing as well.
These people claim to be Christian, but they didn't seem very warm and loving to me. I felt abandoned, tricked, fooled, anything but loved or taken care of. I'm not one of those idiots out there who dig their own graves either, I was actually on the road to becoming a good employee. If you believe this bullsmack about how amazing this company is you are dead wrong.
I tried to talk to Joey Hogan while I was having issues and everyone told me that I wasn't allowed to talk to him, despite his "open door" policy.
By the way, if you don't believe me, go to Rip Off Report.com and type in Covenant Transport. There is a steady influx of new victims with horror stories. They make a good portion of their money accepting government subsidies for training people that they fire so they can hire more people to train and get more subsidies, then they pay everyone bottom dollar compared to other trucking companies.
LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR A GOOD STOCK TO HOLD.
Try Macquarie Infrastructure Company. MIC. Much better bet. Good luck!
