Kelle’s Transport Services Review...

KTS Transportation is Best at Manipulating Wages

I have worked for many companies and have never felt so stuck as at Kelle’s Transport Services Inc(KTS Transportation). Kelle’s Transport is the worst company which only longs for profits by any means. I am new to this company but when I joined Kelle’s Transport, there were many old drivers who gave me the insight about their nonprofessional which I ignored. However, it was soon that I discovered those were not just rumors but contains weight.

I have been loyal to my previous companies and have clean track record. My truck is also always clean and I make sure they are not broken anytime. I ensure what is important should be enforced. I have been appreciated for the same by my earlier employers but this was not the case at Kelle’s Transport.

It took me sometime to understand the way they feed on driver’s and other worker’s salaries. I was in the dark thinking that I have been doing something wrong. Thank god! I realized it sooner. However, not lucky to mend it the right way.

Kelle’s Transport is a company that has no emotions and works for dollars. Apart from making us pay for their greed, they manipulate our login times and details to make us suffer more. We are disturbed in our 10 hours break and are forced to work overtime without any extra payment.

Most of the times, they inform us about the delivery late which makes our dispatchers unhappy. They also consider their remarks and feedback while assessing our performances and make it an excuse while preparing our pay checks.

They charge $40 to clean your truck which I never find clean and is not also required as I do that myself. However, many of my friends say that they charge and never clean that makes their truck smell gross. They are also cleaver enough to deduct from the pay for damages that incurred. But surprisingly, will never be in a position to show the receipt or any proof about the repair.

That is fishy and makes Kelle’s Transport Services Inc suspicious. Dispatchers at Kelle’s Transport make you carry extra load to save money. Many times, I have complained to higher authorities but I think the entire management is in sync.

I do not hope for any change because the masters of the game are corrupt themselves which put all of us to a dead end. Kelle’s Transportation is not running a company but a cult which makes you so frustrated that you either die while working every day with the responsibilities of your families or you quit. In both the ways, you lose.

I trust that Kelle’s Transportation is aware of its unreasonable pressure and torture on its staff, that is why it charges $200 if anyone leaves before 6 months. I am not sure how justified it is but I feel like a slave in my own country.

I hate the custom and work culture here and the owner’s cold hearts which denies its drivers and staffs of their bereavement. My mom passed away in March 2016 and I was not able to be with her during her last hours. Kelle’s transportation did not let me be with my family and made me travel without considering the condition of my mom.

I love her and the feeling of being not able to hold her hands when she was leaving, hurts. Hurts a lot. But they did not pay my checks as well. They deducted $1000 recovery fee and $600 cleaning fee and $800 deposit fee which are non-refundable.

I am not the only one who have come under their wheels but everyone from Kelle’s Transport knows the truth. The entire top team is full of bunch of morons who can laugh at your misery without a single strain on their forehead.

Many employees who stay far do not get to see their families for months as they want our trucks to be stationed at their warehouse. But that also never rang their bells. I feel either they are deaf or acting as one. Nothing makes Kelle’s Transportation feel the pain that we go through every minute. After all this, we do not get our promised pay.

They keep on deducting without any proofs and buzz us off like we are nothing but piece of shit. They make you dream higher but soon will make you understand that it was just a dream. The reality is far away from what they promise they will offer.

I would never suggest to be a part of Kelle’s Transportation if you want peace at your work. They do not give a damn if you have someone sick at your place, if you were operated few days back and are on pain killers, if you are not in a condition to drive, or even if someone close passes away.

All that matters to them is money but they have taken it too far now. Many individuals have left the company and others are planning to. Sooner or later the genuine people will be far away from the clutch of Kelle’s Transportation and the company will be left alone.

I am sure the company’s future is in dark and all I want is to see that future soon even if it affects my employment. I do not care anymore for the payments which are anyway not sufficient enough to take care of me. I am running through a lot of debts and this job is only making my options tougher.

I can never forgive them for what they did to me and the agony will never go away. I work for this company or not, the hatred will always leap in magnitude. You burn in hell Kelle’s Transportation.

  1. We must be talking about a different company

    When I worked for Kelle he only had 20 trucks and he had just left Dick Simon. Back then Kelle had his desk in the dispatch office and he always made him self available. I was involved in a crash when a lady committed suicide by truck. Both my son and I were injured and he paid for us to get home via airline so we could recover. Then when I was ready to go back to work he paid the air fare again. No Greyhound special. When I arrive in SLC he had me a new truck and off to work I went. I have great respect for Kelle, his wife, son & daughter who worked for the company.

  2. Intentional? Or just plain ignorance

    I’ll add to this review by saying these are people without a concise or concern for others and their lives. I was offered a position with the company with a nice salary and benefits no one could turn down…. after giving my current employer 3 weeks notice I trained my replacement and on the last Thursday of work I clocked out anticipating my life was headed in a great direction. I received an email just the day before about “how excited they are to have me join on monday”. And at 505 PM on my drive home I received a voice mail stating they’re retracting the job offer for unsaid reasons. I just quit my job and you had over 3 weeks to make this decision yet you wait until I cannot turn back? This has left me in financial ruin. I’ve missed a house payment, car payment and still nothing said from these assholes just best of luck in the future and oh we may call in August to hire you. BEWARE OF THIS PLACE, any CEO that can cause such damage to healthy hard working family and not even care is capable of anything in my mind !!

  3. ex company driver

    Its been roughly 6 years since I last stepped in the KTS bldg in SLC…With that said, KTS, now SOAR was a horrible place to work for. You could not take the truck home, they ignored hometime requests, they charged bogus things

  4. Kelle's Transport Service

    I’ve been a solo driver here for a year and a half. The trucks are governed at 65. But you get 1/2 hour of 70 every 24 hours, you can use it in snall increments for passing other trucks that are overbred at the same exact speed.
    We get 2 $50 advances every week. Friday and Monday. I put half on my check in savings and half in checking every week. $300 – 500 in each one every week.
    They got rid of the Internationals. 2016 and new Freightliners now.
    They don’t mess with me much. I get the freight there on time. And use my load locks. The trailers all have air slide.
    You don’t need to turn in scale tickets to get reimbursed now. The charge is in the fuel card and they see it and reimburse off of that.
    They are certainly a better company now since they have downsized. They are very driver orientated.

  5. Kelle's was one the best - now it's the worst!

    Worst upper Management team I’ve ever seen! Kelle’s Transport became KTS in 2016 when they moved into their new facility and the new “Management Team” took over. Kelle Simon is a great guy and worked very hard to get his
    business where is was before these idiots took over. They have run Kelle’s name into the ground and many of us good, professional and dedicated employees left Kelle’s because we didn’t like KTS due to their Management staff. We’re all very happy with our new employers, and Kelle’s lost the best team any company could have asked for. KTS is NOT Kelle Simon. KTS will be lucky to be in business 6 mos from now.

  6. Cold hearted creeps

    My Sister just arrived home from quitting KTS. She was so upset, it broke my heart. KTS apparently is a group of heartless creeps. She was completely broke when she left their office in Utah. She had to stand outside and hitch a ride from someone passing by as they did not give a damn, when they stole every dime she had coming to her. They lied and ripped her off. She was crying and terribly upset when she called from outside of the office she diligently returned her truck to. She cleaned her truck herself, which was immaculate, the same as she received it. She did everything right, as she did not want a bad mark on her name. She fully expected KTS to treat her with respect as she did them. However she had to pay 185.00 for cleaning and the mattress, which she left behind, unable to carry it on her back. 200 dollars for her orientation, as she didn’t stay 6 months with them. 25.00 for the bond on truck which she has been paying since her first check. a total of 400 something. If she stayed it would be around 800 total. When you quit you are supposed to get this money back if truck is in condition as received. She ended up leaving co. owing them 100 dollars. My sister is sitting here telling me not to leave this review, as she is worried it may affect her in some way. I refuse to abandon this review as I believe she has been treated terrible and it hurts my feelings. She is a hard worker and a humble woman. Her decision to quit was sealed when KTS refused to reimburse her 120 dollars she had to pay delivering their load. She was not routed. She used her truck gps or whatever it is, I am not sure as I am not familiar, and she won’t say anything else as she wants no part of this review. She had to pay out of her pocket 120 dollars to deliver their load, they refuse to reimburse her. I do not give a damn KTS you are wrong to make her pay this toll. I hate what you did to my sister. You are miserable cold hearted creepy greedy pigs.

  7. KTS stands for Kelle Totally Sucks

    I have never worked for a more disorganized company in the 26 years I have been driving truck. A dispatch can change three times in one day. They definitely can not run a team effectively. And they will tell you to drive even if you are over your 14 hours on duty for the day. Most of your 14 hours will be spent at shippers or receivers. And they dispatch you late so you will arrive late so they don’t have to pay detention. The lies never stop. God forbid you leave anything in the truck when you go home. It will be gone when you cone back!!!

  8. Way better treatment of drivers than C.R. England, Navajo or Pride.

    All right. In my opinion these guys are better than most companies I have worked for. Especially Navajo or C.R. England. They put me in a new truck right off (I don’t smoke or have pets). And they don’t mess with me at all. I load, scale, run, deliver and repeat. They have an account for washouts. Plus you get a truck wash at the yard and one at Streaking Beacon every month. So – every 2 weeks.
    Well, I have worked for many trucking companies. Driving trucks since 1989. I make good money here. Most times if you are a company driver it’s forced dispatch. They have 11 western and all 48. I take whatever preplan they send me here. (I even loaded downtown New York City, a high value load. So I was a little freaked out getting in and out of there. But they give you one of those Abloy Swedish padlocks).
    I run pretty good. I don’t take a lot of time off. If I sit somewhere I get things done where I am. Like today, I made a dentist appointment yesterday- getting my teeth looked at today. They have United Healthcare, I took the PPO option. Got a nice Doctor in SLC UT. I got all the insurance ( cancer, long and short term, catastrophic, dental, etc…)
    Most companies charge you when you go to clean up your truck for the next driver.
    The on-road maintenance is exceptional. They had road service come change a trailer tire out while I slept cuz my e-log ran out of time. Take pictures of things and email or text them in. They love that.
    Their shop guys send me to the SLC Freightliner all the time for work. Which is a great clean, efficient dealership.

  9. KTS Transportation

    Worst COMPANY EVER!!!!! If you are an OTR driver, DO NOT GO HERE!! Forced dispatch, truck was in the shop EVERY WEEK SINCE I STARTED!! They REFUSE to give me my last paycheck, tho it was sadly only $399.14, because I was broken down a week. I Had to file a wage claim against them in SLC. If you have other options, take them. This company is NO GOOD!!! If I was aloud to give 0 stars, I would. Beware of a man named WAYNE PETERS, the safety officer. HE CARES SO MUCH ABOUT OUR SAFETY, he stole my husband’s last paycheck. He told me he would LIE and say I STOLE MY OWN TRUCK, if I tried to return the truck to SLC, to their yard. My name is all over that truck. In the quail com, messages, everything. These people will steal all you have. My average paycheck was $400-500 with them, because I was ALWAYS in the shop, at $50 a day breakdown pay. PATHETIC COMPANY!!
