I also worked for Assured Towing. I started working for them on 1/28/11. During my time there, I was trained to break the law. They treat their drivers like crap. They dont maintain the trucks. In fact, the DOT required cab cards are all expired, as well at the City of Austin Wrecker Inspection, and the insurance cards. They told me to just drive it and pull cars. While driving for them I was involved in an accident due to another driver running a red light, and the officer working the wreck told me that had I been driving for longer than I have been, that he would have cited me for the insurance card, no front license plate, the blown bearing on the dollies, and a slew of other issues. When I told me GM about this and requested it be taken care of I was basically told to drive and not worry about it if I wanted to keep my job. I drove and 2 days later I was pulled over by DOT for the same violations. This time I was given a written warning and told if my name were to come up again in association with these violations I would be penalized for every violation they could find, to the maximum extent of the law. Again I informed my GM who told me that it was a non moving violation and wouldnt be counted on my license so I should not worry about it! I told him he needed to do his job and get it fixed, and he threatened to fire me. Meanwhile, the 2 checks I received while working for this company were both 19 hrs short. When I again confronted my GM about it he said he could do nothing until my upcoming check, which again was 19 hrs, short. Following all of this, I took my girlfriend to the hospital for a sprained ankle, and he demanded I bring him the hospital discharge papers showing all of her personal medical information. When I agreed to provide papers showing her name, the medical facility and date and time of visit, he informed me that ""it wasnt going to work out for me here"" and fired me. When I told him to make sure my check was correct he proceeded to laugh at me. I am in the process of turning them into every state authority I can think of. Also, I was told by someone in the office that they were being investigated by the State DA and were about to be shut down. Im not sure if there is any truth to this or not, but I do know that 2 days after hearing that my GM was gone in court all day. If it is true then I will be providing a few more nails to shut that coffin, and if not I hope to interest them in starting an investigation of some sort. I can name about 20 laws they break without thinking too hard. Company's like this give the industry a bad reputation.
