Poor Management
Temp Job (Former Employee) –  Russellville, AROctober 11, 2018
Poor management. Poor training. Nothing was ever clear, too many people doing the same thing. No direction or back-up plan to keep things moving. People avoided talking to certain people on the phone because they didn't know what to tell them so they would just keep calling.
Pros
Fun Christmas
Cons
Temp job, was let go and never given a reason

Not reliable
Driver (Former Employee) –  Russellville, ARAugust 2, 2018
Do not do what tell you that they do for you and promised you. The miles were not what they promised that you would get. Overall it was not a great company to work for

OTR Driver/Lease Operator (Former Employee) –  Russellville, ARAugust 1, 2018
Typical OTR company. If you don't mind living in a truck they'll hire you. Some of the dispatchers have an idea of what they are doing, but they seem to prefer hiring non-drivers for positions better suited for the knowledge base a driver, a good one, has.

Horrible Management and no understanding of running PM’s or Repairs on trucks on a schedule
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARApril 18, 2018
No pay raises at all for what you do, you get PTO but it’s hard to take, TLI is like the bottom of the Totem Pole when it comes to how they treat there employees, when it comes to benefits, and when it comes to running a business....Take a chance on working here if you want and I bet you will regret it or while you are there you will be searching for another job at the sametime
Pros
Great Co-workers
Cons
No Management or employee appreciation and horrible(high)benefits

Not the best experience I've had
Clerk (Former Employee) –  Russellville, ARMarch 5, 2018
Hours were reasonable, pay was on the low end for the area, no opportunity for advancement, work was monotonous. Culture is to pass on issues to other departments. Spent a majority of my time fixing errors made in the upstream processes. Supervisor was made aware of this but chose to ignore it. Management didn't set clear expectations or goals. Morale was low and turnover was high.
Pros
Hours were Reasonable
Cons

Just don't do it
Contractor (Former Employee) –  Russellville, ARFebruary 20, 2018
A typical day at work: Arrive uninformed that they have changed your job and you are doing something completely different than what you applied for. Simply because they fired someone else.

Next, sit back and enjoy being hollared at by the drivers, their customer which is a freight broker who provides your drivers with low miles, and live load and live unloads so they never make any money. Leaves your driver hanging with no back up load after a delivery. Blames you for the fact they have no freight to give him. Be prepared to be yelled at and insulted by their freight broker/customer for attending a safety meeting. And it's all your fault since you were magically elected to be a dispatcher, with no experience dispatching. Your drivers will be yelling at you about the miles and if they are a solo driver, they will get a bad truck, because all the good trucks are held for teams. Half of the fleet you are assigned to will be ok drivers and then there are the drivers who don't really want to work, and that will also be your fault on both the driver's side and the customer's side.

Make sure you get a pay stub because you will find out that some deductions came through such as insurance you did not sign up for (because you're already covered by your spouse) and you will never get a card or proof of coverage until you get your year-end taxes. They also don't pay you for holidays if they don't have to and will look for loopholes.
Pros
They are located in the south
Cons
Everything. You cannot even leave your desk

Team Dedicated Driver
Team Driver (Former Employee) –  Russellville, AR 72811February 9, 2018
Started out well with Transcolines, went onto dedicated account.
One of Transcolines benefits was after 3 months of working 1 week off. We worked there long enough to do this twice and the third time they swore that they never said such a thing, even after verifying it with there CEO.

Director of Administrative Services (Former Employee) –  Russellville, AROctober 30, 2017
It was an honor to serve with the other directors. We saw rapid growth in a very short period of time under Michael Bar's leadership. I had an amazing staff and we did great things.

OVER THE ROAD TRUCK DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Russellville, AROctober 9, 2017
Like to travel all the country and be away from home all the time this is the place for you if you can deal with automatic transmission trucks. If interested, more likely they are trying to get you on there lease purchase program though.

Upper Management is very dishonest
OTR Driver (Former Employee) –  Russellville, ARSeptember 24, 2017
They dont follow through with their promises! The pay is average or above for the experience level. They are good about getting you home if you have something that you need to get taken care of. The equipment is equal to if not better than most of the long haul carriers. The dispatch team are not too bad overall! The upper management as well as payroll department leave alot to be desired!
Pros
Decent pay, well equipped trucks, steady freight lanes
Cons
Upper management, payroll department
