If you work for Transport America, you had better be in your sleeper if you have an accident. Even if you don't get a ticket and the other driver flees the scene, you'll be found "preventable".
I honestly think they tried to starve me out with no miles and when that didn't work, they trumped up this because of my accident. Yea, I guess I give them fuel for the fire by having an accident. But again, I was not at fault and the other driver did flee the scene. No ticket for me.
Shortly after I started at ta, they switched gears and would not hire new drivers that wanted home every weekend. I was one of the last ones they hired for weekend hometime. They also changed to a JIT company. The planners barely give you enough time to get the load delivered, not to mention p breaks. Also, no Co. insurance for the first year but they do offer private insurance which is very expensive and limited benefits.
They keep hiring new drivers and trying to force out anyone before they get a years seniority. This way they keep the revolving door open with excess drivers sitting not getting any miles. Lets face it, it don't cost them a dime if your sitting waiting for a load. Any expense they incur traing new drivers is just a write off. If I could start a Co. with employees that I didn't have to pay until I needed them, well, thats money in the bank.
It amazes me that these really smart CEO's really thinks the average worker is stupid.
