    I just resigned on 15Feb08 from TransAm because I learned the truth about them and that the recruiters are full of it. You will NOT get the miles and pay they claim you can earn. Their lease program is an even bigger scam, they will tell you that as a lease driver you will earn $12,000 more than a company yearly and you can earn $44,000 as a lease driver - they also have brand new Kenworth T660 that they will entice new drivers into choosing to leasing instead of driving a company truck that has over 300,000 miles on it .
    It will cost $847 a week for the truck plus fuel( about $1,400) lease drivers earn .084 a mile . They say the rule of thumb is that the first 2,000 miles you run will be for your truck and fuel payments ad every thing over that will be in your pocket.
    My problem with TransAm was that for the 8 months I worked for them I was averaging about 2400 miles and if you do the math that is $336 a week take home after TransAm gets their money and leaves you what is left . I had many weeks where I just made 2,000 miles and got less that $100 pay for the week.

    Bottom avoid TransAm if you do go with TransAm DO NOT go lease be a company driver ( by the way co. drivers earn .23cent a mile + .07cent a mile for personal expenses)

    No sooner than you'd posted that and P.T.Barnum's saying "there's a sucker born every minute" proves true.
