I grew up in a cattle trucking family, yet I still had to wait till I was 23 to get on a good bull hauling outfit. The insurance part is hard, but keep trying.

I'm not sure exactly where in Iowa you are located, but I want to warn you about 3-J Trucking in Ireton, Iowa.  The owner likes to lure in young guys 19-21 age frame.  Sometimes older, depends on how much they know, or actually how little they know.   He knows that it is hard for them to get insured but also because they are young and don't know much about either trucking or the cattle industry.  He'll hire you and won't put you on the insurance policy if you're too young and if you're involved in an accident and it's your fault, insurance won't cover the accident which leads you open for a law suit. Also, if a driver gets an overweight ticket, he'll say that he will take care of it and what he'll do is call the state and say it's the driver's responsibility.  Before you know it, it turns into a warrant because you are receiving things in the mail about a court date.  Just happened recently to 3 other drivers.   Essentially, he walks all over people and screws them out of pay if their paychecks actually don't bounce.  Good luck to you and just wanted to warn you to steer clear of 3-J....he is definately a smoothe talker.

No problem.  Glad I could help.  I just want to warn people about 3-J because of what happened to me and my family, along with 5 other drivers that could verify that information.  Call Dave Weber with Burhs Trucking in Adams, Nebraska.  I heard they were looking for a couple good, honest drivers.

I'm a friend of Mike Mc and also have fell into the same type of situation with 3 j.   The difference between the two situations is that I am 19 and bought my first truck and was promised the world by Mike Johnson.  There is also a difference in not being able to pay drivers when you are hard up for work and bouncing the checks that are owed to the drivers for there work.

Well I don't know how he could have screwed so many and still be walking? Looks like someone would have broke his knee caps by now. That is about the only way to stop people like this. You can write bad checks and if you know what you are doing you and the law can't do anything about it.

I understand completely that times are tough right now in today's economy.  I've been driving a cow truck for almost 11 years,  It's who you know, how you take care of your customers, and all 4 walk on and all 4 walk off.   But, what Mike Johnson is doing with 3-J Trucking ( or 3-J Express, it's either D&D or Double D, and he's actually put himself off as Triple J which is a company out of Minnisota....Yes, he's actually used all these other names) is illegal.   He double brokers the loads, doesn't pay the trucks, nor the drivers.  He will actually hand you a paycheck, but when you go to your bank, it bounces.  Mike Johnson knows that the check will bounce, he just keeps on writing them.  If you are overweight (which in cattle haulin' you usually are), and you end up getting a ticket....he'll tell you he will take care of it...and before you know it, you have a warrant out for your arrest.  On top of it, the DOT's seem to always be suspended, and the insurance always lapes.  Just watch out because he screws everyone over, moves to the next set, screws them over, then to the next set, and so on.  That's the reason why he uses all these other names, and gets loads from brokers that way they don't know it's 3-J trucking.  I just want to warn other truckers so it doesn't happen to them like it did us.
