Orentation went ok. But after that it went completly down hill. Could not get with a trainner right away and when I got one he made sure that I knew I was not going to make it because Iam over 49 years old. No stops for anything. Not even to pick up food or take a crap. Had to go in a jar. would not run the ac becuase of fuel prices and would not stop for a shower and would not let me drive at night until it was illegal to drive. And would not help train at backing where I relly need help at. Did you know that you can drive from toronto canada to gordensville virginia in less than 11 hours. At least that is what the log will tell you. He would not let me drive the day at because he didnt know if I could handle it at night. He let me drive the 2nd day for 4 hours thru part of Chicago. And said I did ok. The 3rd day he drove because thge run that we were on did not allow for any mistakes and it took us into canada, And only he knew how to drive in canada. The 4th day and final day he had me drive illegally with him so we could get to virginia on time and at night, with him sitting in the passenger sit with the computor on and emailing 3 people and talking to one more person on his phone while he was teaching me the way of the road. I decided after that stuff I would not make it out here. And took a 48hr ride home on a greyhound. And now I cant get anyone at the company to return my calls or my emails, so now I dont have a job.

AUTHOR: Srkenneth - (U.S.A.)

Well I see last year someone responded to my ripoff report. So all I can say is why did you quit working for transport america? And if they really wanted me to work for them how come they didn' offer a different trainner?

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Transport America Trainers

AUTHOR: Susanmn - (U.S.A.)

I drove for this company for a few years, went through their school/orientation. I was put with a trainer that I had to go to GA to meet up with and at the time I lived in WI. He wasn't there when I got down there so they put me up in a hotel for two days. I had no problems with this trainer at all. I guess what I'm wondering is if you had so many problems with that specific trainer why you did not ask for a replacement? You may have had to wait for a short time until one was available but that would of been better than quitting. Of course other company's are not going to be so quick to hire you since Transport America only got the trainers side of the story so that is what they are telling other companys that call to see why you quit. The years I was with them I have met quite a few of their trainers and all have been very pleasent with the exception of one but that one was female and a real you know what. I guess in this case the trainer is to blame and not the company itself. Yes they did put him on as a trainer but how are they to know how his students are treated unless you turn the trainer in. I would return to drive for them in a heartbeat. They treated me very well.
