I was wanting to know if there are any drivers here from Virginia and work for Tmc. If there is where are you located, were do you usually run. Also are you a trainer. I am finishing up at my school in about two weeks and I am pre-hired with Tmc. I have done a load of research about them and I believe that is the company that I want to start my New career with.

Pre-hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

Hey driver, I'm not with TMC but I do live in Waynesboro, VA. I don't get home much but when I do, I see a lot of their drivers traveling up 29 from Lynchburg to Charlottesville. I also know they have an account with, I believe it's Home Depot, down in North Carolina. I remember seeing that y'all had an account with a customer in Maryland somewhere as well. Can't remember exactly where I was when I saw that. Point being, I don't think you will have a difficult time finding freight which gets you home for the weekend.

Yep I think that has been implanted In my brain. Lol

Not really worried about staying close to home just curious on how far out they go from home. Like are they just in a certain states or all over.

With the trainer I'm just looking to see how far I might have to travel to get to them. And if there is one close by that I could talk to and maybe request them if available. By the way im in Roanoke, VA

Seeing as they try to get drivers home for the weekend I don't see you traveling west of the Mississippi too often. I pretty much see TMC all over the east and mid-west.

That's what I figured. But wanted to confirm. I would like to see the country but also like the idea of being home most weekends.

I agree with you on that.

I'm in Virginia, too. Williamsville and VA Beach. I see the TMC trucks everywhere I run with Millis.

I’m in SE Kentucky. I see their trucks all the time. They are probably the most prevalent flatbed truck I see here on I-75

I drive flatbed up and down and all around your area. Everywhere I go I see TMC drivers. flatbed is the way to go just getting out of school. They will give you so much more training than the super carriers and after 5 or 6 weeks you will be making a real living immediately. No working your way up 1 cent a year!
