    I worked at Transport Corporation of America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fleet management is good and 24hour dispatch. No forced dispatch and shut down if driver feels unsafe..contact fleet manager and let them know. Not held against you.

    Cons

    Not good for driver trainers. Weekend/after hour dispatchers are sometimes hard to reach when needing time critical reply. Not enough solo miles.

    Pros

    This company cares about its drivers. They also care about the job and their customers. A family environment where they respect everyone!

    Cons

    The dashcams in the truck can be a little annoying with the micromanagement received by the safety department.

    Advice to Management

    If you can see what is happening in the dash cam video, why harass the drivers. I think that you guys should create a point system on the severity of the type of dash cam videos that are received. e.g. scale it on 1-5 rating. 5 being most severe and 1 being not as severe. Once a driver accumulates 5 points, then call them and ask what is going on and how can we move forward to mitigate that driving behavior, but ask the driver questions like, "what happened?"/"Why were you driving that way?" "Why do you think that this posed a risk for both you and the general public, Why or why not?" "What problems might have happened if...?" "What would you do differently moving forward?" This will allow the driver to have buy in and a deeper understanding of their driving behavior. Then provide best practices and the information about how their driving behavior can affect all drivers indirectly, and that these calls are for the benefit to them whether or not they have the eyes the see it that way now. This will help make the calls from safety seem more like a partnership in safety, and less like a "we are after your job" kind of call. Besides that, I think you guys are doing a great job with the companies culture and pay incentives! Thank you. Keep on Trucking!
