Driving for TMC, let's hear it Drivers!

All, I would like to hear from TMC Drivers (and former TMC drivers) regarding their experiences. I have got my list down to two or three companies and TMC is at the top of the list. I am going to do the same thing here with the other two companies, but not in any sort of order. It is looking like I am going to have to make a career change from an electronics technician of 35 plus years. Sheesh, hate the thought of starting over, however..... Bring on the comments guys and gals. All I ask is that you're honest with me, no flowery BS unless it is the truth. I recently went on a trip to CT with my wife to my son's wedding and I was amazed at the number of TMC trucks on the road up and down I-95. Just this morning, I saw a TMC Driver out of Savannah, GA (home), so I know they are out there! If you prefer, you can also email me. KG4QIQ at Gee Mail dot com. I am looking forward to what you've got to say: Good, bad or otherwise!

Howdy, Scott E. ~!! (aka: Scotty, LoL!)

Did you try this? Apply For Paid CDL Training.

Also, start here:

If you want to learn more about flatbed, read some of Old School, Turtle, and Chief Brody's diaries. Old School drives for Knight, other 2 Prime; our flatbed guys. (Turtle is now with WMPF.)

Tanks, look at some of PJ's posts. So many more on BOTH ends of that spectrum; just the few that came to mind.

Wish you well!

Oh yes, Anne, I have seen these posts. Nothing like the feeling from those that have "been there and done that" for an honest answer to your questions. I wouldn't be adverse to reefer or dry goods; I was just looking for where the "needs" were and go there. I can agree that the new guy shouldn't necessarily start out with tankers given no experience, I can respect that. What I would like to go is talk with Prime drivers and talk with TMC drivers (not necessarily recruiters).

All options are open! I am not tied to an "either/or" situation

Thinking about driving for Prime and/or TMC

Okay folks, new guy here. I am debating between Prime Tankers and TMC Flatbeds. I've done the research, but I would like to hear from those that are in the field. Pros and cons of each. I know Flatbed is very hands on (tarping and securing, etc.). If I were to ask where is the need; the flatbed company would say flatbed and if I were to ask the tanker company, of course they'd say tanker. It really boils down to what I want to do. This is a major change in career path for me; I am a 30+ year electronics technician getting out on the road. Constructive comments are appreciated.
