I cannot recall any active members here that drive for TransAm on any accounts. From your previous posts I don't know what anyone can offer you for advice.

They push that lease the hardest out of any carrier. They're really bad about it. Do. Not. Give. In. To. The. Pressure.

Honestly I would recommend many other companies over Transam because of this.

I went through orientation with TransAm at their Rockwall, Texas terminal. You will find a lot of negative things about TransAm online, most of which is just disgruntled former employees. The training is just one week on their practice pad. There is no going out with a trainer. Their new dedicated accounts are much better than driving OTR , as far as pay.

While I was in training with TransAm, all of their equipment looked well maintained. I know that I am not providing the perspective of an actual driver with the company. If I were able to go back to TransAm on a dedicated account, I wouldn't hesitate.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I know a driver who went lease op with them. He lasted about 6 months. If you have a clean, shiny driving history DO NOT GO OWNER OP WITH TRANS AM!

That said, they are a valid option for drivers with troubled pasts (tickets/incidents/accidents). If you want to keep driving but all the other companies are saying, "NO" they're a better option than a 1099 company.

One of our 'not so recent' members got her start with TransAm. I'm not sure if she was lease or not; I'll let you look & peruse her diaries. That may be the account she was on.

She has since moved on to CalArk (and Twitter.)

Here's her posts: Chickie Monster / TransAm, etc....

If you want her twitter handle, lmk!

Best wishes;

~ Anne ~

ps: INDEED. DO.NOT.LEASE!
