I am 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 is tmc's percentage as good as the company makes it out to be?

I also am looking at TMC and have some questions Looks like a great company and I hope they like me so 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
