Ace Wilson Trucking is based out of White, GA and sometimes will show Canton, GA.
Of course this is about the money, or in this case, the lack of it since the Wilson’s didn’t pay us our last 2 weeks which is over $5,000. No reason was ever given, just never paid…going on 5 months now. So if you’re considering going to work for Ace Wilson Trucking ,here’s some of our experiences while we were there.
To start with, they bought us a used truck that they apparently hadn’t even tried to start much less test drive as the day I went to pick it up at the used truck dealership it had to have a battery put in to start it. No, they didn’t replace a BAD battery, they just pulled out A battery and replaced it with one that came off of a pallet of cheap generic batteries and stuck it in there. Heck, they could have pulled out the only good battery and replaced it with a new one for all they knew!
Next is fuel. Not a drop in this trucks tank so it took this place several hours to find enough fuel to siphon out of other trucks to get in to it so it would start. You’ve got to be kidding me. Yep, if you go to work for Ace Wilson Trucking, this is the kind of stuff you can look forward to. Anyway, I didn’t get out of town with it before it was overheating. I stopped at a Five and Dime to buy distilled water just to get home with it. Then halfway home it had some kind of oil leak that spewed oil all underneath it. Well, we weren’t in this truck long as it was LITERALLY falling apart going down the road. A complete mud flap fell off driving down the highway! I also had to wire the stack on to keep it from falling completely off of the truck.
Then there’s your safety that’s at stake if you work for Ace Wilson Trucking. They have you bring your truck to Atlanta to some moron mobile truck repair guy. And if you have to stay in a hotel, that’s on you! We found that out after this idiot took 5 days to rebuild the rear-end in the parking lot of a hotel! Later we found out that we weren’t going to be reimbursed for the hotel. Back to the rebuild, after we drove it for 6,000 miles it was time for a PM. We had the shop check the oil in the rear-end since it had just been rebuilt and they told us that there wasn’t a drop in it! They completely filled it up! The moron mobile repair guy didn’t put any oil back in it after I specifically asked him if he had refilled it.
The same mobile repair guy put a brake pod on the truck at another time. I was asleep but he told my wife that he didn’t have the right part to put back on it but it “didn’t really need it anyway.” The part connected to the automatic brake adjuster so with nothing connected to it it just tightened and loosened as you bounced down the road. When I found out something was wrong was when I was going down a mountain in Colorado and “smoked” the brakes on that one brake. This is when I found out about the missing part. Here’s the next surprising part. When I called Mrs. Wilson about it and explained what their idiot repair guy had done and that I hadn’t smoked my brakes in 7 ½ years of driving, her response was a surprised, “really?” Well yeah, really. Any moron can smoke their brakes coming down a mountain but a professional doesn’t have to!
We know of another of their teams who had been driving on tires that were illegal due to tread depth. They had to call the Wilson’s and force them to put new tires on the truck by telling them that they were parking the truck at the Commerce City TA and not moving it till they got new tires. That worked but who wants to work for a place like that!?
Ace Wilson Trucking? You don’t need the aggravation. There are lots of better places you can work.
They should have just paid us. email@example.com
