    Pros

    Other drivers treat you like family, good place to start out in the industry; company decent about getting a driver home most of the time.

    Cons

    Low miles (which equals a small payday)-weekend crew lacks sensibility regarding appointment times; dispatching is out of sync with driver's HOS; corporate staff, team-leaders/fleet-leaders/fleet mgrs. do not listen to driver input regarding appointment times that cannot be met; too many load recovery/relays due to service failures, which is a result of poor planning and customer service failures, which are beyond the driver's control; driver's are expected to fix all time management issues when planners and customer service fail to meet customer demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Hire competent planners and dispatchers that actually know how to do the job and know what it's like being a driver and who understand the HOS rules; instead of, hiring more new drivers to overwhelm the ones we have.

    (2) Also, stop thinking solely about the profits which are made as a result of the driver's efforts, and treat them like they are your best assets by extending to them some respect for the hard work they put out to make this company an organization that they can say they are proud to be a part of.

    (3) Hold yourselves to the same standards that you expect of those who put those profits in your pockets, and act on the promises you make-remember, a person is only as good as their word.

    (4) Be the Transport America that you once were and quit trying to be the next Schneider, Swift, Werner or JB Hunt-let's be a step above the rest and not like them.

    I worked at Transport Corporation of America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent training, equipment, maintenance, middle management, mileage and customer base.

    Cons

    Upper management, inter_office communication, Tell the truth when a driver is expecting to return to work, don't string him/her along til FMLA is exceeded then tell them to re_apply only to say we don't think you are medically capable of doing your job even though the driver has clearance from the doctor to return to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with drivers, share information between office staff.
