worked for this company four years, first two was ok, then the downhill slide started, cut pay from .45 mi down too .43 then .41 impossible fuel bonus, wont pay detention time wont pay layovers, all this is in their recruting info that they do pay. constant fight with dispatchers to get any home time, 1 or2 days after 3 weeks out, trucks turned down to 60 mph and expect drivers to drive 9-11 hrs straight to deliver airfreight, then expect you to sleep all day on break without any a/c because you have to keep idle time down, and tell you your job depends on it, they tell you to buy a fan and window screens at your expense to save them money. wont allow drivers to use toll roads route you on two lane roads and expect you to make the same times as you would on an interstate highway. if you ever think about driving for this bunch of morons forget it. company really went downhill when they hired their new president from schneider and he brought a bunch of orange idiots with him. started treating drivers like they were mongrel dogs. iv'e been drivivg for over 30 years and this is one of the worst i ever worked for, gave up trucking after this company dont work here under any circumstances.

Unfortunate but true, it would seem

AUTHOR: CA_Medicine_Woman - (United States of America)

Unfortunately, I did see evidence of this sort of thing going on at TA, and more.  Like another who responded, I'm not at liberty to discuss much, since I too have pending litigation that involves the employer.

I can say this, however...

Have your own outside health and occupational accident coverage.  The insurance provided and carried by this motor carrier covers nothing even remotely work related, and filing a WC claim is a nightmare process (they simply won't pay without a court fight).

Carry a full tool set, and be prepared to have to repair your own rig while on the road, likely at your own expense, if you wish to avoid catastrophic failures (which will be repaired as cheaply as possible, maybe).

Use extreme caution to insure you are not injured or made ill by working for TA.  If you are, you will be terminated.  You will not be able to return to work for them once healed.

My lawyer says that's all the warning I can give to drivers.  Good luck, especially if you go to work for this company.

Sorry to hear that you too saw what I saw. My last day of employment was in the mid-May 2010.   I was only there for a few months earlier this year and will verify exactly what you described to a 't'. 

Dispatch does expect you to get from point A to point B on those two lane skinny roadways in the same time it took you to drive on the interstate at 65 mph.  They also expect that you never break down, do a proper pretrip inspection and god fearing, that you get anything fixed. 

I numerous times made loads late due to needing repairs to the trailers.  I even had the Fed-Ex operations manager come into the yard in Roseville, MN and witnessed the out-of-service (air leaks) on a trailer and say he wished that his drivers' in his own fleet inspected and cared about equipment as much as I did.

There is numerous other issues I would describe here but due to a pending legal action for wrongful termination (filing an STAA claim with DOT), ADA request and harassment in the workplace....I will just say to those that are looking at working here....think twice.  Read what this driver and I have posted here and in other posts.
