    Pros

    Worked with knowledgeable people. Was new to the transport industry at the time and learned a lot in the few months I was there.

    Cons

    Though they were helpful, I never actually felt like I was welcomed. The employees were clicky at the time.

    I have been working at Transport Corporation of America (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exçellent payroll dept. Always paid on time and they get your pay right.

    Cons

    Nice looking trucks but have lots of DEF Problems. But when u do break down they take care of the load and you. Motel, taxie, rental...what ever it takes. $75 a day breakdown or you can switch trucks if you want back on the road faster.

    Advice to Management

    Pay has raised but still much lower than a lot of other companies., 1.5 yrs and only get .39 a mile with no accidents, or tickets and 100% on time.

    I worked at Transport Corporation of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits. Only have to cover one holiday a year as a CSM.

    Cons

    Far longer hours than scheduled. Little to no support from team managers or upper management. Upper management not open to suggestions as far as improving processes. Open door policy is stated but not practiced. You work on a team but it's not a very team like atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees on the operational floor. They're the ones in the trenches with the customers and the drivers- they know best what's working and what's not.

    Best reason is treatment of employees and drivers

    none

    Pros

    This is an easy going company. They will get to know you by name. Most of the daytime dispatchers will work with you if there is a problem. The have an actual open door policy. If you have a problem you can talk to anyone. The pay is about industry average. I would work here again if I didn't have a bad back. Safety is a priority!!! If you think its not safe to roll dispatch will not argue with you.

    Cons

    I think they over monitor hard breaks. We all know when you are on the road stuff happens. I also don't like the new system that monitors your following distance.

    Advice to Management

    Great Job Guys keep up all of the good work, but try not to baby sit the experienced drivers so much with the new contraptions that are coming out.

    I worked at Transport Corporation of America (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Steady freight, even during the slow season. Kept us running with virtually no down time. Amazing DM, if we needed an extra day off, it was no issue. treated us like drivers should be treated. we were a NAME, not a number. Sorta miss it, but with a family the road life was difficult.

    Cons

    Regional absolutely sucked. HORRIBLE, STAY AWAY FROM SE REGION!!!!

    Pros

    For the most part kept me rolling, got me pretty good miles.Liked my trips to TX

    Cons

    Not truthful about drop and hook.Sat at dock for long periods of time. When you are 1 minute late due to planners, no detention pay.....pay zip code to zip code. Have you on crazy driving schedules....Lived in North Carolina, most of my trips were in NJ, NY, PA, OH, IN. Mind you I was a SE Region OTR driver.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure planners have information together. Stop telling people that there is 90 % or 95 % drop and hook.....
