TransForce Trucking advertizes itself as the number one staffing option for drivers looking for a stable career, without being tied down to one job. Instead they are a good way to be lied to, paid far less than advertized, and treated as though you are brainless.
I signed on with TransForce 1 month ago. They assigned me to the account I asked for. The account, as advertized, paid 1200-1500 per week. It was also supposed to be home weekends, with between 1 and 3 nights home during the week. It was supposed to be 2 assigned customers, one on each end of a dedicated loop. What a joke that turned out to be.
First, they had me ride along with another employee to go get my truck. Second, they had me run 2 loads before I even went to orientation for the customer! After 2 tries to get through orientation (the customer kept having "emergency" loads that they needed me to run before I could finish) they did not get me immediately to my assignment.
After working for this customer for 3 weeks, I finally got TransForce to admit what my pay scale was. 38.5cpm which for 3 trips per week, comes to less than $850/week before expenses or taxes. I have yet to be home during the week, except when they could not find me a load. It is not dedicated, and the customer even told me I "had to run NYC, because I am a Northeast Regional driver."
If I had been told any of the information: below industry standard pay for a 12+year driver, NYC, or nearly all Broker freight, I WOULD NOT have taken the job at all.
I was told that I could change accounts whenever I wanted, and that there were numerous home-nightly jobs in Pittsburgh. I have been trying to get off this account since week 2, and my dispatcher Will Not transfer me. He keeps saying he cannot find me a customer in Pittsburgh, but there are 3 posted on Monster.com AND transforce.com.
I have a feeling I will be fired for posting this.
