Well ran organization. Great equipment, good people. Decent pay.
Time away from home. Runners make more and get better load options.

Good equipment mostly, nice facilities
Annett holdings own a majority of the company, so it's not really employee owned at all. They turn over non tenured drivers to feed the ESOP plan, it's part of their business plan. Very deceptive. You will have to self tarp 95% of your loads, and most of their tarps are in very poor condition. Trailer swaps numerous times per week, which means transferring everything including dunnage. Management and safety department are completely incompetent. Rules change constantly, so you're never sure what's right. They complain at drivers constantly, and encourage drivers to report each other, while paying lip service to how important the drivers are. It's an incredibly toxic environment. I left to drive no touch dry van, and I'll make 25-30 percent more than I ever made with them. It was the most miserable 2 years I ever spent on any job. Please, do not waste your time with TMC!

Nice trucks Good fuel network/breakdown support Decent pay
Management has become extremely toxic and unprofessional. They threaten to terminate employees over stupid things constantly and dose not matter how long you have been there and how good ur record is. Tmc has gone full swift in the sense that they want quantity over quality Vacation time is a joke
- 1.0Aug 4, 2023Truck Driver (OTR)Current Employee, more than 8 years
Very nice looking equipment and facilities
Poor management, poor communication, poor training, poor driver, pay, very small amount of freight, despite what anyone else says. Dishonest, hiring practices, lying about Hometime, practically zero detention pay, despite what you may be told, if you want to get home on the weekends, you had better be OK with not making any money, unless you’re extremely lucky or blessed. Not enough office workers and support staff to handle the amount of drivers. Tattletales everywhere at one point I was being ride it out every single week for something to SAFETY. SAFETY can put you out of service for up to three days unpaid just because somebody called in on you. If you take a job as an office worker, the pay system is predatory, and you will never make top dollar. Also, if Tmc leaves you sitting without freight, they will not pay you. I’ve heard stories of guys who spent an entire week with no freight, and they were not paid. Also, it’s still lists Herald Annette as the CEO. He died and that’s why this company is in the crapper.

Company stock if you can make it a year
Fleet managers are held accountable for things outside of their control. If a driver is in the reserves and gets called up for active duty, it’s on you. Or if a driver was trained poorly and is on your team less than 2 weeks, you are accountable for the loss. OPs managers are bosses, not leaders. They have no reservations on writing you up and have huge turnover for FMs.

Good training program, everything I learned there will take on to my next job. Esop(
The pay is not transparent. Trucks are governed at 65 mph.This is a good starter company but not a good company to stay for long term. The pay is not enough for everything you do there for example $40 is not enough for lumber trap pay.

They work with you on getting you home every weekend. Very Strict Company But With Your Saftey and other's in mind
You get a percentage of 71 percent of the loads
- 3.0Jul 3, 2023Logistic Sales RepresentativeFormer Employee, more than 1 yearBentonville, AR
Even if you are new to logistics, but a great sales person you will make good money. If the managers like you will make even better money. Whenever someone leaves they will disperse accounts and you'll get commission from the loads you move with that company. They give you a decent base salary plus commission on every load you move.
They bleed through their carrier sales reps so coverage for sales people was not great. We lost customers because we couldn't cover loads. They don't do development training for their carrier sales reps. Carrier sales reps would only cover easy lanes since they would get call ins. Had unnecessary tension and yelling at the office because of toxic management.
