    I have been working at TMC Transportation

    Pros

    Couldn't really give any pros first OTR job

    Cons

    Expected to sleep in the top bunk of the truck while your trainer drives down the highway after bouncing off the ceiling all nite you have to drive for 11 hours without killing yourself or someone else. Not to mention if they have a wreck where are you going to end up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a policy in place where your trainers can't make a trainer sleep in the top bunk while driving

    I worked at TMC Transportation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back and low pressure other than # of phone calls, nice offices

    Cons

    Salaries are well below the industry average and support is non-existent, unless you do it the IA way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Iowa setup doesn't work in outlying locations.Try listening to the offices where the work is done and allow changes & adjustments.Two different transportation segments.

    Pros

    Very nice equipment
    what you put in, is what you get out
    Good pay!

    Cons

    nothing really towards the company itself. Just long hours away from home which is what you would expect in this industry.

    Pros

    Nice equiptment, dedicated runs, lots of night time support, and multiple terminals for repair and dispatch.

    Cons

    Have to beg for freight, no home time after its promised, garbage QC units, cocky trainers/dispatch/shop/safety/everyone. Rookies run amuck; drunk on the propaganda feed to them in school and training. They pay by the MILE for flatbed if you decide to and their % is trash. SLOW trucks. Gotta tarp EVERYTHING.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speed up your trucks and stop taking students. I left long ago because I wasn't treated like an asset. Without quality drivers that stay on, "destination excellence" is just some words you wasted money on at the vinyl shop.

    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.
