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

    Pros

    Nice equipment, paid for good hotels on the road. Made it home pretty consistently on the weekends.

    Cons

    Training was really cut throat, staff was rude talked to trainees like they were in boot camp, staff used racial slurs. Fleet managers only care about the load, they asked me to keep driving after I told them I was injured from a wench bar slipping and hitting me in the face. That was my first job out of Truck driving school. I was discharged for an unsafe lane change and they had me drive all the way from Tennessee to Indiana to tell me that then they told me I had to find my own way home to Toledo, OH. They did not provide a rental or a bus ticket, they left me stranded and I had to find my own way home. And on top of that they kept my last check.

    "Great for company drivers"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Cdl Class A Driver in Des Moines, IA

    I worked at TMC Transportation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Home 99% of weekends. Money is good enough. Probably one of the best OTR companies to drive for as a company driver.

    Cons

    It is OTR so you are gone from home 5-6 days a week

    Training is at my pace with goals to help me accomplish and obtain the personal and professional goals I have set. And there is no cap on the money I make, there is no ceiling.

    Cons

    You need "grit" be willing to go thru the grind.

    I have been working at TMC Transportation

    Pros

    Not many companies provide full rate paid training, but TMC Transportation does! After the initial training period, I always had access to TMC’s leadership for any coaching and guidance I needed. With this coaching and training, I was able to surpass my goals in the first month! Every success is celebrated, no matter how small it may seem! There is so much room for upward growth, and that is so important! Have you ever just been given money from your employer? TMC’s ESOP program is phenomenal, and they do just that- give you money! I only wish I would have found TMC sooner than I did!

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons! I have been treated so well by everyone at TMC!

    I worked at TMC Transportation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They have great benefits. The vacation time is more than most hospitality fields offer. They have a 401K percentage that they match. You get paid every week. You have a ton of different people in different departments that are amazing to work with.

    Cons

    They do not stand behind their employees. They cover up many inappropriate things that happen between employees. They will make the decisions based on what is easiest for them, instead of what is morally or ethically correct.

    Pros

    Nice facility and good location.

    Cons

    Unorganized and incomplete job training. New employees fill & refine Sales funnel, but not given time to complete Sales cycle. New hires are then summarily dismissed for not producing within narrow time frame & all developing sales opportunities are closed by and pad the wallets of long-term Representatives. New hires keep the funnel Full for select established representatives.
