Just curious about the reputation of my new company and any opinions and or feedback about them from you experienced truckers would be much appreciated. Thanks.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

Haha! They are selective!

They rejected me all three times I tried to get on with them.

That doesn't make me feel good. Wow

So I might get down there and sent home?

I had a hernia, but even after having surgery they weren't confident in me. You should be fine. They are very particular about their physical.

I wanted to start at TMC, but they weren't hiring from the state I lived in at the time, so not sure if they would have taken me. They're known for their extensive securement training and clean trucks. And I've noticed they help each other a lot at shippers and receivers.

I've never talked to an unhappy TMC driver. I'm sure they exist, but they're rare from what I can tell.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Most flatbed deed will help each other in general. It's a brother/sisterhood that just kinda happens. This weekend in Chicago there were several of us rolling tarps together. And it was not warm out there.
