    Pros

    Pros? I guess they teach you what's like to work for a terrible company. They assured me the truck was in good working condition so I Signed a lease and within 200 miles I broke down and stayed down for 7 days. Had to pay for hotel fees, maintenance, food, and everything else out of pocket before I had made any money with trans am. I came home 5 times in 6 months each time only staying home for 2 days. However that didn't matter I was always in the hole cause they won't give you more than 2800 miles in a week even when u beg for miles.

    Cons

    They lie non stop about everything so they can get freight run basically for free by a driver who is paying their truck payments. You can beg and plead for more miles but you won't get more than 2800 miles. I got 3000 miles in a week 1 time and in my opinion that's just wrong. You should be able to get as many as you can. Dispatch does not care if you get 10 miles or 10000. They don't care about you whatsoever

    Pros

    No pros what so ever.

    Cons

    They take green drivers and put them in brand new trucks. Lease payment $610 week plus fuel plus all the other fees. Must drive 2,300 miles a week to break even. Most weeks you get maybe 2,500 miles. Get paid $ 0.84 a mile. If you use their "walk away lease" you lose everything you put in then they send you a bill wanting more money. Many lawsuits on company. Bad can scores. Don't do it. Total scam! Do your research! Contact ooida and ask about the company.
