Good place for a paycheck
Collection Analyst- Accounts Receivable (Former Employee), Olathe, KSMarch 12, 2013
Pros: nice people clean lunch room and bathrooms
Cons: clicky people
I guess being laid off after a year was better then firing. Trucking industry a lil clicky but still nice people to work with.

Excellent starter company
Company driver (Current Employee), Olathe, KSDecember 11, 2012
Pros: great company driver position, friendly driver managers, good compensation for starter position, excellent equipment, good miles
Cons: very little home time, some incredibly tight shippers and consignees
TransAm is a great place to start a career in trucking. A typical day will include six to ten hours of driving and maneuvering, generally to and from new places. There is no shortage of freight, and it's rare to see the same consignee twice. The driver managers are very friendly and professional. Training is shorter than with most companies in the industry, – more... and it can be rather intense at times. The hardest part of this job is the same as with all OTR positions: You simply won't be home very often. A few days a month is all that can be expected. If that's okay, though, the equipment is fantastic, the pay is reasonable, and it will certainly get your foot in the door in this very competitive industry! – less

OTR Lease Operator (Former Employee), Olathe, KSMay 10, 2012
Pros: see the country
Cons: earn next to nothing if you're lucky.
Great job if you are willing to remain on the road 100% of the time and live on next to nothing in terms of pay. Leasing the truck to new recruits is this company's main objective as someone must generate the revenue to pay for them. Once this goal is met, there is no incentive for the company to allow the operator to profit. If you are just starting – more... out in the trucking industry, be prepared to owe money to this company after they put you in the poorhouse as they did 20 of my classmates within 3 months of startup. Great equipment, relatively consistent work, fair routing (my routing manager was great but others had it really bad), very expensive lesson. If I had this to do over again, I would have chosen McDonald's: better and more consistent pay, home every night, fewer hours. A small minority do well, but for the most part its a revolving door process that chews up unsuspecting good potential rookie drivers daily and leaves them on the side of the road in ruins. – less
