Best Trucking Company in the Industry
Fleet Manager (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IASeptember 18, 2018
TMC offers a very structured training program that gives you a thorough knowledge of a fleet manager position, but also allows you to learn what drivers go through on a daily basis. Compared to other trucking companies, while still being high stress, the employees work together to put drivers first, and there is little negativity and conflict within the office. The major downfall of the company is a lack of work life balance for office employees, which is typical in the transportation industry.

Good OTR job
Professional Driver (Former Employee) –  United StatesAugust 30, 2018
If you can get a good fleet manager this will be a very lucrative job.
Benefits are good, ESOP is good, the key to working here is getting the right fleet manager, if you don't have an experienced and quality manager, your pay will be hurting.
There can be decent home time available as well. Potentially every weekend if you desire.
Pros
Equipment, pay
Cons
Some fleet managers, hard to have a family

Great Starter Comany
Regional Driver (Former Employee) –  USAAugust 30, 2018
I currently work for TMC. This is definitely a starter company. For someone who has been driving for over 5 years TMC is not the place to be. If you are just a current graduate of driving school I would absolutely look into the company. They teach you excellent driving and securing skills. Time management. Put a year or two in and get out.
Pros
Nice Equiptment
Cons
Low pay for what you do

Great company that offered me an opportunity that turned into what I hoped would be a career. I can only say good things about TMC Transportation and I will be forever thankful for getting a chance to work there for over 10 1/2 years. So sad to know it's ending in October.

Just about everything
Cons
Nothing really

Good company to work for
OTR Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAAugust 3, 2018
Great company as long as being home isn't a must. They tell you home on weekends but it's is more of every two to three weeks. And the dispatchers rarely have you back in certain situations

TMC is a great place to get properly trained.
CDL A Driver (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAAugust 2, 2018
I worked for TMC for one year and in that time gained great experience and insight of the flatbed trucking industry. They offer the best training program out there and they are Military structured which as a Veteran coming out of the service was an easy transition for me and I like that about them. TMC is also employee owned and theres something to be said about that, they are a good company and have great Benefits. However, they are much like the wolves most other companies truly are, you are simply a tool to them and you had better be a Good one. The trucks are unsafely SLOW and freight percentages paid to the driver are all over the place, one week I'd bust my rear for a $650 take home and next week $800 take home and I had the same loads as the previous week. Very stressful. Also the main thing is they tell you they get you Home 46 of 52 weekends a year - THEY DONT. Not even close, they give you a nice truck with their name on it and you are fully expected to live out of it! Well, except for your 34 hour reset then you better be in it. In short, Good Benefits, plenty of support, decent management, good training, nice trucks, slow trucks and low pay with high expectations. Wasnt for me.
Pros
Nice equipment, employee owned, training program
Cons
Pay, home time.

Not recommended.
OTR Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAJuly 29, 2018
This is a company that will chew you up and spit you out. I would avoid this place if you have any kind of experience. The only good thing about this place is that they have nice trucks.

Good co-workers, poor management.
Technician (Former Employee) –  Brownsburg, INJuly 5, 2018
They advertise they will train, but lose people so fast that they will train people in one aspect and wait till the next person leaves. They have a training team but in 2 years they trained maybe 2 times in the 30 that they showed up. It would be an ok place for a driver to learn how to secure loads, just don't stay long. Way less than engaging for mechanics. They just want you to clean there shop, buff there paint and buff wheels. If you want to learn a trade, ANYWHERE else is better.
Pros
Drivers are good people looking for an honest career.
Cons
The only people who stay are exactly the ones who make it a miserable place to work

Repetitive work but not difficult
Fleet Shop Technician (Former Employee) –  Gaston, SCJune 25, 2018
Start work by either finishing up repairs on a truck previously serviced and inspected or pull in the next truck and begin the service and inspection. Work throughout the shift repairing all defects of the tractors.
Pros
Work is not difficult or stressful, most coworkers work well together
Cons
pay scale is very limiting, micro management

Road Repair Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAJune 15, 2018
Management and co-workers were always helpful and they tried to keep things upbeat and fun. Management does need to provide feedback to employees more often to let them know how they are doing and what they can improve on.
Pros
Relaxed atmospher
Cons
Lack of professional feedback

Extremely stressful due to micro managing, no real structure within the company, like they make up the rules as they go along.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Gaston, SCJune 12, 2018
If they don't like you, you're guaranteed to get fired. There is no training program established and do not take the time to train anyone. You basically train yourself and if you do make a mistake, you are written up.
Pros
Pay rate was great
Cons
Poor management skills, no training prgram
