Any TMC Drivers on the Forum?

IMHO, Maverick may be a better fit if you're older. I got a tentative job offer from them and I'm 58. I have a solid work history, no tickets or DUI's or any other none sense, and was almost immediately denied when I applied to TMC on a few weeks ago.

I'm 41 with a clean MVR myself, 3yrs experience on Reefer.. TMC accepted me so I'm just surfing the internet comparing/contrasting driver testimonials.

Any TMC Drivers on the Forum?

We did have a member a little awhile back. He did a year and then left to go local but he said he liked it. Type in Solo tmc and it will come up. Solo was the name he went by on here.

Thank you Bird One, I've found his entries on here, currently reading through them

Any TMC Drivers on the Forum?

Hello Trucking Truthers!

This is Adam, I joined the page about 3.5yrs ago looking to cut my teeth on the trucking industry. Few years later & I am not so recently off the road from a successful stint at Swift where I ran teams with my wife on a Dedicated account hauling reefer for Target in TX,CO,NM, and OK mostly.

My wife and I recently bought a home in Lexington, KY (home of my alma mater) & have been kicking the tires as it were, looking for our next carrier.

We spent some time yesterday talking to a recruiter with TMC, but I am curious if there are any TMC Drivers out here on the forum? I would love to hear your experience with the company if so.

Personally, I was inclined to investigate TMC because I have an interest in flatbed, it seems as though they provide adequate training & run nice equipment.

I happened to catch what Brett had to say about percentage pay & I plan to bring up those points when next we speak with recruiting, very helpful insight to be sure.

Once again any information or experiential advice is welcome, hope ya'll are staying safe out there! Talk soon.

Mentoring with Swift

Adam you should have met with and assigned a Driver a Development Manager before being paired with your Mentor. You should have their contact information.

As a trainee this person is your advocate, contact them to get your questions answered.

Thank you for the information G-Town, though it seems that something is amiss with that part of the process. When we were at the Academy after we had passed our CDL test we waited awhile for Phoenix see our results, then we were informed someone would contact us with information about our mentors. A “coordinator” contacted us but never introduced himself or prefaced what his capacity was in regards to us as students. He provided us with numbers of our mentors and said “give them a call”. As for orientation unless I count the first week at the Academy we didn’t get an orientation where we might have had an opportunity to meet our DDMs.According to my mentor he stated something similar to what you said but that things had changed since the Knight merger. He stated he used to be able to come meet and greet new students and also said that orientation used to take place at the Lancaster terminal though now apparently that has changed.

Mentoring with Swift

Thank you everyone for your help / input, it is much appreciated. Since I was sitting awhile today I called the 800 number and started there. Answered my direct deposit question which I have to take care of on the portal at a terminal. We should be in Lancaster tomorrow so I’ll take care of it then. I looked through my packet for a list of numbers of division leaders and I didn’t find any such list. I did get in touch with a driver manager who informed me I really wouldn’t know what comes after mentoring until I’m done with this phase which makes sense. The scenario at the shipper was a character builder for sure! 9hrs40min off duty all told. Dry van. Made it out of there then right into some traffic around Baton Rouge & currently stopped for a reGen. It’s been a day but I’m liking the experience!

Mentoring with Swift

Greetings TT family, I hope this message finds you well. I’m currently fresh into my mentoring phase with Swift. I know there are some Swift veterans here & I have a question. As a student what are the proper channels for communication within the company? Specifically I have questions about setting up direct deposit & what to expect post mentoring phase as I will be teaming with my wife who is also mentoring currently. My mentor doesn’t seem to know the answers to these (and other) questions so I thought I would tap y’all for any information. Thank you in advance! Currently moving into my 7th hour waiting at a shipper so holler at me! lol
