The company really wants the drivers to be safe. If you're sick or tired, they don't want you to drive. They will make arrangements to have the load rescheduled or relayed. Compensation is very good for the indusry.
Very nice terminals with lots of amenities.
During holiday seasons, freight was not available to get you home.
my situation has changed since I had started here three yrs ago, I no longer desire to be on the road all week long with not much time at home, and I don't like the way I see the company going basically

You have to stay focus and on point in order to get your loads in daily. Sometimes the traffic will not permit you to get to your appointments on time and you would have to wait until the next day. The most enjoyable part is I got to see the country.

Ex Lease Purchase Driver (Former Employee) – Egan, MN – January 16, 2018
Transport America is by far is the worst company I have ever been dumb enough to work for. The lease purchase is a JOKE and if for any reason you have to give up your truck, they will bill you for fake repairs.
You will be treated poorly and even have some wanna be dispatcher talk to you like trash but if you dare talk to them in the same way, they will threaten to fire you and they will put things on your dac so watch that closely.
Fun place to work and great dispatcher at my time of employment with this company..............Not a bad place to work other than if you work the southeast region , you must park the tractor in Atlanta for your home time. and then drive your personal vehicle to where ever you live ...............................................................................................
washer and dryers at terminals
had to leave tractor in atlanta, ga. during off time
good place just pay is low for the hours and time your on the road, first CDL trucking job. just would like to be home more often as much as I'm out and its a good company just hoped I would be paid better. my over all experience is average for them

Good people that respect drivers but they want respect and responsibility in return. In fact, I think that word respect is the buzz word for the company. Their trucks are not the newest but are very well maintained and most look new. Trailers are also good. It would be great if they included a XM radio but they do include a fridge in their trucks. Good miles and good home time.
OTR Company Driver (Former Employee) – Eagan, MN – December 21, 2017
they are not "changing trucking" they micromanage. get no miles. lack of maint. on trucks and trailers. went over my HOS 2 times because of them. low pay. no incentives at all. no use of BT devices at all. sat for 16 hours waiting for a load. didnt get paid for it.
