I did complete orientation and I did get the $500. in com-check form that I was able to cash at the Pilot truck stop for a fee, something like $30. bucks!
I must add that TMC doesnt feed you very well while in oreintation everyone seemed to complain about hunger. The room was decent though. After oreintation I was able to go home untill they found a trainer in my area, to get home they teamed 6 of us together with a rental car and we all had to pitch in for the fuel but later got reimbursed if the reciept for the gas was submitted properly,which I did get back, doesnt sound to bad so far huh? keep reading;
after a week home a driver trainer manager calls me and tells me he found a trainer for me but I would have to drive 3.5 hrs to meet him and he doesnt smoke cigerettes, I smoke, you might be able to imagine how that sucked for me. I was told if I didnt except it could be weeks befor a trainer closer to me would be available if ever. Well of course I excepted I wanted to get to work, I trained for 3 weeks and was able to get home 2 out of the 3 weekends but the hard part was my wife had to drive to meet me and I drove back 3 times we did this thats a 7hr round trip, TMC reimbursed most of the gas it cost but it was inconvienent to say the least.
Durring my 3 weeks training I would have to check in with the driver trainer manager once weekly so he could monitor my progress and encourge me about all this money im going to make. In training I was paid a salery of $500. per week. Once a week I was required to take a test on the qualcom (on board computer sattelite system) with the trainer and send it in, some what humiliating and rediculous. I was lucky that I had a nice trainer but I heard some were real jerks.
I succeded training and was routed to a terminal to be processed to get a truck, it took 3 days and alot of waiting and it had a few problems I took it to the shop. I also applied for the EZ-Pass which they took $100. deposit I yet to see and charged me $2.50 a week to use it, then I found out TMC wont pay for some tolls any way they just take the money out of my check so its not all that usefull. I also find out that TMC has fuel and truck wash network which means you cant fuel any where else and its not always in route! OK here I go in my own truck, my pay scale is 27% of the gross pay to the truck, now my pay averaged $135.00 per load to me thats not good pay for flat bed! that trip will take 2 days to complete! do the math.
My average take home for the first month $550.00 per wk. then there is this thing they call a snap shot, which means they use a point system to evaluate how much I idle the truck and how many miles over they claim it takes to get to point A to B, dont forget fuel stops arnt always in route. Well they put me down to 23%, most companies give a raise after being there a month thay take money away! TMC sets it up so there will be out of route miles, it gives them an edge over me to take advantage of me, I also got shot down for idleing the truck, it didnt matter if it was to hot or cold they didnt care, month 2 I averaged $450. month 3 $350. month 4 $250. month 5 $150. once in Dec and Jan I didnt even make enough to bring a check home! what happen to the $1,100-1,300. I was promised! plus I paid $85.00 a week for health Ins.
At the 5th month they called me in to fire me giving me a bunch of petty reasons, I have a clean driving record and criminal back ground, the truth is the economy is bad and thier letting drivers go in the hundreds. TMC does not give a hoot about you and you will feel it, they destroyed my life, I starved there and now im out a job, I needed to show 1 yr at 1 place in order to get another trucking job now im having a hard time finding a job, if I knew the truth about TMC I never would have gone there, I have heard story's from other guys prior to me out there and TMC is nothing but a Rip Off !
