TMC offers a choice between percentage pay and mileage pay. Percentage rates start at 26% for new graduates.
Mileage pay starts at $.40 for new drivers. According to TMC Transportation, 80% of their drivers choose percentage pay.
Because TMC Transportation drivers receive payment on a percentage of the load, they automatically get a raise when freight rates increase. Drivers could see increases as soon as their 2nd month. The percentage pay package is performance based and reviewed on a monthly basis, and ranges from 25-34%.
Mileage rate raises are: $.42 per mile at 6 months, $.43 per mile at 12 months, and $.44 per mile at 24 months.
Yes. Drivers are awarded points based on their fuel efficiency.
Additional pay is also offered:
TMC Transportation offers health insurance with all major standard benefits and options including life insurance and 401k retirement plans, vacation time, and Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
It varies. Drivers elect only the benefits they want, with exception to the ESOP, which is contributed at no cost.
Vacation time – 1 week after 1 year of driving (Average weekly pay is paid to the driver.)
TMC Transportation is unique in that they offer a choice between percentage pay and mileage pay. Their mileage pay is also on the high end of the scale for new drivers, and TMC drivers average $55,000 in their first year of driving. Either choice would put you in the upper regions of new driver pay.
Insurance benefits are typical of any large company, and their Employee Stock Program gives drivers actual stockholder ownership in the company and a stake in its success beyond just employment. Both of these things are pretty unique to TMC Transportation, as far as the rest of the industry goes.
It depends on the account. A few accounts allow it, but most require a period of safe driving experience on linehaul first.

TMC does not offer a lease purchase program to outside hires. TMC hires company drivers. Drivers who wish to become owner-operators may do so provided that they demonstrate safe driving and have a good understanding of how to run a business. TMC does not persuade drivers to lease, and they are predominantly company drivers.
All flatbed. All OTR. TMC Transportation operates Dedicated, Specialized and Linehaul divisions.
TMC offers a few different driving opportunities, but their main selling point in that regard is the opportunity to be home every weekend.
Currently, over 35% of TMC's Flatbed trucking fleet is comprised of veterans. TMC offers military veterans the opportunity to enroll in their GI Bill-approved Apprenticeship program.
TMC Transportation recently pledged to hire 500 military veterans by 2016 in conjunction with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce "Hiring Our Heroes" program.
Late Model Peterbilt 579’s, black-and-chrome.
TMC's equipment is typical of what most companies will offer: late model tractors using electronic logs. Note that they don't have APU's, not that it really matters that much.
