Jack Rabbit Services LLC Informative - Jack Rabbit Does Not Honor The 1099 Contract
BARDSTOWN, KENTUCKY -- I worked for Jack Rabbit for a short period of time and they do not honor the independent contractor rules and regulations. WE ARE NOT EMPLOYEES AND THEY TRY TO TREAT YOU LIKE EMPLOYEES!!! They make rules up as you go along-THATS A NO NO!! As an independent contractor for a majority of my life I had a real problem working for Jack Rabbit. They tried to tell me what to drive- independent contractors in Texas can drive whatever they like, no matter what shape the car is in as long as you show up for work. They tried to tell me not to drive my vehicles because they were faded, had a dent in the side or just "didn't look good". They pile 12-13 assignments to do and expect you to do them all literally in 40 minutes and there are no other drivers in town and the area manager calls you and yells at you about your times being bad and your poor attitude. Why did it take you an hour and 20 minutes in rush hour, bottle neck traffic on the busiest section of freeway in town to get to this call? They expect you to work "backed up" 8-10 calls in a concentrated area when there are no other drivers and then expect you to drop everything and go 26 miles in the opposite direction to take care of a call. AGAIN I WAS THE ONLY DRIVER IN TOWN. As an independent contractor, I am able to accept leads as I see fit and take what I want and decline what I want. and to quote an area supervisor, "YOU'VE ALREADY TURNED DOWN 3 CALLS AND IF YOU TURN DOWN ANYMORE YOU WONT BE GETTING ANYMORE AT ALL!" It was said the proper customer service he said I don't care and stop (insert expletive here) calling me" After telling the lead driver he would answer his phone at any hour to help HIS drivers. B.S!! According to the supervisors and managers you are to accept a call, ask the other drivers if they can accept the call and pass it off to them. That is an impossible task when there is only one driver in town. They expect you to drive 46 miles out of town and get there is 40 minutes when you are at least 72 miles away from the call and over an hour away from it. They don't understand that you are driving to polar opposite sides of town the area supervisor wants what he wants and he wants it now and then after yelling at you expects you to kiss his butt as if he were the greatest. He runs hot and cold and expects you to be bi-polar with him. As for getting paid I think its inconvenient to ask drivers to go to Kinko's and pay over $150 to fax in their invoices just to get paid when the main offices has the calls in the office in the hands of the auditors. If you don't fax in they threaten not to pay you. they told us to fax in any day we want just don't go over 7 days. Then when we did fax in they told us not to be faxing on Thursday Fridays or Saturdays. so I faxed in Mondays. they quickly text-ed us and told us not to fax on Mondays either. Only fax on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. They claim 7 days to pay you and then the pay comes in 9-11 days. The lead driver in charge started treating another driver unkindly after the driver refused to let said manager borrow one of his cars because the managers truck broke. after the driver went out of his way to pick him up and drive him home. he had a very nasty ugly attitude and said, You have vehicles at your disposal! and If you're not going to use them I will!!" The driver said no and it went down hill from there for the poor driver. The second they get what they want from you and run your car & your spirit into the ground they get rid of you for one reason or another. They are lame and I pity the fools who replace me. the dispatchers called a driver up to tell him , "I know its not your shift and I know your probably sleeping but I'm told you're very reliable so I'm going to call the customer and tell them you're coming Thanks and bye now." And if you don't get up and do it the dispatchers call and complain about you- and you are penalized by not being given work for a couple of days and the supervisor calls you and berates you to death. he says how dare you not go to this call when we need you. they want you to work all night and all day and it gets frustrating to not get sleep for 3 and 4 days and only bathe 2 times in a week because every time you sit down or close your eyes they call you and threaten you and say you will be fired if you don't get up and help because there aren't anymore drivers. You're it get up. They made another lady (who was ultimately fired because she had Cancer) miss her chemo appointment and they didn't care. She worked with her husband as a team and They kept her husband working because there were no other drivers. He didn't want to get fired because then there would be no more money for her treatment. He was ultimately penalized for being the only driver in town. How backwards is that. hes running the city alone and they re going to dump poop on him. He was running the city all by himself and they had the nerve to chastise him after they signed his wife's death warrant (this driver is the husband of the driver who had the cancer) They are nasty nasty people. The owner ultimately doesn't care that the supervisor in Louisiana is running the company this way. They think I am a dumb Mexican man-I'm not. I pretend to be who they think I am so they will leave me alone. Well this dumb Mexican man has started working for the competition and now I'm well respected, well paid and well rested for my work. To deny a Cancer patient treatment is an unconscionable thing to do and I have sat down with the Cancer lady and shes a doll. Everyone that meets her loves her. There was a flattering comment about her on the Jack Rabbit FaceBook page and they removed it. They want people to think shes a villain. Shed really nice. And surprisingly enough she doesn't hold it against them. Id be a mother sucker to work with after them making me miss a chemo appointment. Jack rabbit also lets the customers lie about the drivers and they don't fight for the drivers at all. They're snakes in the grass. You know what? Snakes won't even hang out with them they're too slimy. YOU CANNOT RUN A CITY IN TEXAS FROM LOUISIANA, KENTUCKY, MAINE, OR SOUTH CAROLINA. YOU MUST BE PROFESSIONAL AND HIRE ENOUGH DRIVERS TO HANDLE THE SHIFTS AND THE WORKLOAD AND NOT BLAME ONE SINGLE PERSON WHEN THE JOB CANT GET DONE OR HE BLOWS A HEAD GASKET ON HIS CAR WORKING AS A FAITHFUL WORKER FOR YOU. YOU MUST HIRE DISPATCHERS FOR THAT CITY TO WORK THAT CITY OR DRIVERS ARE GOING TO WEAR THEMSELVES THIN AND WEAR THEMSELVES OUR AND END UP BITTER. YOU RUN AUSTIN FROM AUSTIN, SAN ANTONIO FROM SAN ANTONIO AND HOUSTON FROM HOUSTON. IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, OR YOU CANT DO IT THEN DONT RUN IN THAT PARTICULAR CITY.
