    I worked at Transport Corporation of America full-time

    Pros

    Decent Salary. Corporate Office very structured, well trained team oriented individuals.

    Cons

    SE Regional Division lacked formal training for employees. No bonus/commission structure. Not team oriented. Current Upper Management out of touch with the issues in division & unwilling to accept or address once informed. Long hours despite scheduled hours.

    Advice to Management

    Add formal structured training for regional division & solid support. Add commission or bonus structure for CSM's.

    Pros

    I have a great fleet mgr and most others are good, though weekend/night help doesn't know much

    Cons

    Poor planners. ALWAYS getting loads impossible to pick up on time, no detention until after 3 hours of sitting..this happens a lot! Lots of short runs

    Advice to Management

    Get with your competition.pay after 1 he delay. Use PC Practical miles, instead of hhg..That's old. Better pay. In 2 months I can go to a company that offers this and .10 a mile more with a $1000 a week guarantee

    I have been working at Transport Corporation of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Their dedicated accounts are the way to go because a lot of them are on a salary base where you dont have to worry as much about the miles

    Cons

    I was never a big fan of their otr because you have to hope they get you a decent amount of miles in order to bring a decent paycheck home and I have had a lot of times where I found myself sitting and waiting on loads.

    Advice to Management

    Management could use better communication skills at times but other than that they do a pretty good job helping you out and working with the drivers on most sotuations.

    Drivers are family. Some fleet leaders great. Some very bad. Shops suck 99% of the time.

    Pros

    Good pay. Good miles if you show them you can work. Drivers are diverse and like a family.

    Cons

    Some fleet leaders think they own the company. Very demanding and rude. Extended coverage in Eagan - aka night dispatch should all be fired immediately. They are worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to treating driver's with respect! Especially the ones who work their butts off for you! Hire new shop mechanics.

    A great deal of possibilities, unfortunately upper management does not follow the servant leadership they promote.

    I worked at Transport Corporation of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good group of employees. Wish the company would have seen them as team members - Technology - 1st rate systems, industry leaders here - diverse group, both office and drivers

    Cons

    - top down leadership, front line has little to no power - Benefits, healthcare plan is rough (child birth figure 3.5K-4K out of pocket) - Feeling of your a number and easily replaced - just bought out, sure to see huge changes and positions lost

    Advice to Management

    Promote and follow the company values. Leadership needs to know they have a voice in the process and not to fear that their opinions will be used against them because they differ. Allow them to get there ideas heard, and you will find more buy in from them even of it is not their 1st choice.
