    I have been working at TSL (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Set your own schedule. No forced loads. Very good in-house mechanics. Drivers are very helpful in helping new drivers.

    Cons

    Training consists of 4 days driving w/another driver & 8 hrs. classroom. Learn on the fly. NO Paid Holidays unless you are working. you are expected to provide your own hand tools. Benefit package is minimal. Mileage is .30-.? cents per mile, it's a mystery what you get paid when industry standard is.39 cents per mile. Paid Miles driven doesn't does not match actual miles driven(air miles ?), confused yet ? So am I. I was told I'd make 900-1100 per wk. Haven't seen over 800. yet. Average $750. per wk @ 55 hrs ? equals $ 13.63. If you are happy with that, hop on board....

    Advice to Management

    Get in the 21st century, upgrade your mileage pay, so a guy can pay his bills.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at TSL (Omaha, NE) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The first two rounds were only behavioral and they took time but nothing difficult.

    The third round was technical and a face to face one. This one included some technical questions and was very easy
