I know they are based in Iowa. Other then that I have no clue. I had looked at them few months back before getting on with GTI.

I hear from their drivers though, they enjoy it.

What do you want to know I work there

I am also looking at tmc. My current situation is that I am expecting money for cdl school but am not 100% sure if I will be getting it. So how is tmc with paying for future drivers to go through driving school? Also right now I live in Texas in tmc's hiring area but my wife and I are looking into moving to California in a year or 2 so does tmc deliver to California and does some tmc drivers live in California? Also do you enjoy tmc and is their percentage pay worth it compared to cpm? thank you.

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

I also am looking at TMC and have some questions Looks like a great company and I hope they like me If someone could clarify these thing up for me it would be appreciated Do they force you to train after 8 or so month with them ? Does your pay cap out if you don't train ? If you do train how often per year is it required ? These are a few questions I have form my research Thank God for trainers but I'm going into this business for the solitude and don't want to be forced to live with a stranger for 5 weeks at a time several times a year nor do I want to be penalized for not wanting to

Can I ask how long have you been working at TMC? Is it hard to get loads on a steady basis year round? I've heard some say that during the winter season flat bed trucks tend to get less loads than they would during the spring and summer time. If that true?

Does the driver have to tarp the load or is it half and half, sometimes the driver and sometimes the customer does it? What would you say is the hardest part of your job? What would you say is the best part of your job?

Any other information you can give about TMC would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.

Also from my research on FB companies I found that if your bed isn't made when you come to the terminals that they dock you a certain $ amount. That could be true or false, I've not taled with or seen any of their drivers or trucks int my area of KY as of yet

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.
