    I have been working at TMC Transportation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture! The culture here at TMC is second to none. I have been working here in our Illinois office for a little over 1 year and I couldn't be happier. The company is actually employee owned.. and a it shows! The people here take great pride in the representation of themselves and TMC.

    Also, cannot forget - uncapped commission! You are rewarded directly for whatever you earn. The pay is great and the sky is the limit here.

    Cons

    Days start earlier than 9AM. This is logistics though, and the money is made early and often. IF you don't like starting around 7:30 or earlier, might not be the best industry for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Finally, they are realizing that people will quit if they dont start paying! Not everyone can afford to loose hundreds a week- every week

    Cons

    Doesn't always have loads. Obsessed with cleaning your truck for free! Pay not that great. At the current position I transferred to they say you will get 1100 to change to local but lie about it... when you bring a 499 check home and work full time. When you talk to the person that hired you they say its 1,000 and 1,100 for certain loads. Not true. Its per load. When you are waiting in your truck from 6am till 11 , 12, 1, etc and get nothing till 2 that's not your fault. It's hard to pay your Bill's if you have no idea what pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees. Don't mislead them.

    Pros

    Great work environment. The GM in the Chicago office promotes a culture of professionalism and drive to get your job done. Micromanagement is not in the cards with him, but he is more than available when you need some advice or help. Employee owned. You get out of this job what you put into it.

    Cons

    Wish you could earn some extra vacation days a little quicker pending the amount of time you have worked here.

    Advice to Management

    None really.

    Pros

    One company that is top notch with its training for load sercurement if you have no experience. Pay and benefits are really good.

    Cons

    Being on the road for a while is hard on someone with young children. But they try to get you home in decent time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at TMC Transportation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employee owned
    Base salary + commission
    Benefits
    Relaxed atmosphere
    You control what you make in commission

    Cons

    It can take 6-9 months to be commission eligible but this is why we have a base salary. Everyone in the office is more than willing to assist any and all new people to be successful. Since we are employee owned the success of one means the success of all.

    Advice to Management

    Since we have new management in place at the Chicago/Naperville office we have been doing nothing but improving so the right person was put in place. I would say just keep doing what we are doing and never take Reece away from us!

    Pros

    None! Verbal abuse! Toxic masculinity is everywhere in this office! This is not a safe place for women !

    Cons

    Management is horrible! HR needs to step up and get down here fast!

    Advice to Management

    Start over! Unless verbal abuse is okay with y’all....

    Pros

    Outstanding company... wonderful people.. excellent equipment. Great at keeping you moving and informed. Top notch training.. family oriented... veteran friendly.

    Cons

    Although most drivers don't like dash cams facing the cab, they're there for you and the company. Some of the new trucks coming in are automatic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the outstanding work... You're doing it right.
