They do not want you to hit the brakes, i worked here and they said i hit the brakes to hard and put me with a red neck trainer and i resigned. no other company before or after them told me this. i couldn't drive for all the hook ups in there trucks.
Not a good job to work at if you have responsibilities
Transport Driver (Current Employee) – Dallas tx – September 1, 2018
I worked here for almost 6 months. I was a OTR driver for the most part things were going well I was getting paid decent than I transferred to Dallas and everything went down hill, mark (safety headquarters) made my time in Dallas very horrible he was very unprofessional, he watched my every move and always had something to say . He even went as far as to insulting my wife. Not to mention I went 5 long hard working weeks without receiving a paycheck.
COMPANY DRIVER (Current Employee) – Eagan, MN – August 19, 2018
I would stay with transport america if they could find me a dedicated account that had me home daily. I have worked for TA for over 6 years and it's a little sad to resign. The Safety/Terminal/Dispatch managers at my home terminal will be lifetime references and truly missed. All companies are subject to change, but us as drivers have so much stability in the workforce.
Safety 1st. Very peaceful work environment. Staff and terminals were acceptably appreciated.
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – August 18, 2018
I love my time there. Everyone there is amazing and the training is top of the line. If you are afraid of something by the time you get out of your trainer truck you will be comfortable! I love This company
Driver Manager, loads, load times and drop off time
Decent company to work for. Truck maintenance could be better. It's a lifestyle more than a job if you can't hack it then move on, It's not for everyone. They do what they say 95 % of the time so overall it's better than most.
Transport America is a company that is honestly trying to change trucking. Both times I worked there it was a positive experience. I was an OTR driver I enjoyed my time there, sadly my Driver Manager created a Conflict of interest and put saftey second, and freight first. I highly recommend Transport America to new drivers
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.
