I worked at TMC Transportation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good experience right out of college. Real world management. Most of the people are pretty enjoyable to work with.

Cons

Very stressful. Everything is always your fault, even things you have no control over. I would not recommend working here unless you have NO other options. Very little if no room at all for advancement. Poor pay with tiny little raises that don't come but every few years. Expensive benefits package.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

EASE UP ON THE FLEET MANAGERS!!!!!

    Pros

    The money is good for an entry level role but the company is very small and there's not a lot of space to grow. Real management experience right out of college.

    Cons

    Very stressful work environment where everything is always your fault, lack of transparency from management, people get downsized often when the economy turns, stressful industry.

    Pros

    Flexible lunch hours, when you get to take a lunch. Casual dress, free coffee, and nice landscaping to look at when you come into park in the morning. There is more freedom than you have at most entry level jobs. They're pretty upfront about what to expect with most aspects of the jobs they provide.

    Cons

    Entry level office jobs with very little chance to be promoted, ever. Mostly salary positions that are treated like hourly positions whenever it benefits the company so you're stuck with the worst of both worlds. You'll be expected to work a minimum of 10 hour days and rotating weekends. Benefits are the lowest that can legally be provided; Vacation time is horrible, but that's often the case with transportation companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in employees growth and treat them like an asset. You can't lead by only using fear.
