    They're not required by law to let you work two weeks out, so when you got routed to the terminal you should have known that you were likely going to have your employment termed. I don't think they're actually required to get you home either. Should they provide transportation home? Certainly, seems like the right thing to do, but then again your the one that chose to end the employment, they took you up on your offer sooner than you were hoping for.

    TLC is not a temp agency, they process your payroll and store your records, but your employer would be whatever the transport company is, and they have to pay workers comp and any payroll taxes.

    Davis is the cheapest company you will ever work for. The get the cheapest trucks available start you out at .32cpm they tell you that you can earn 2 bonus's a month, then proceed to cheat you out of them. The newer trucks have park smart systems in them that run off of batteries that will last 8 hrs if you are lucky. The trucks will only idle for about 3 minutes so depending on the time of year unless the truck is moving you will either be sweating or freezing your ### off. There are only 2 dispatchers there that halfway seem to know what they are doing. One time they had me shuttle 6 trailers from Ellenwood, Ga all the way across Atlanta for this they paid me the grand sum of $50.00. The Davis's are the biggest skin flints you will ever meet. They want you to wash your own truck for free which is why Davis Transfer is known as Dirty Davis to differentiate it from Davis Express. They do alot of Publix stores with multiple drops. For those of you that have never done Publix stores, Publix likes to build stores in places a truck and a 53' trailer has no business going. Then you have to figure out how to get in the parking lot. Don't bother calling the store because they can't or won't tell you. You get to do all this for $15.00 a stop. And don't get a flat tire Davis tries to find some way to blame it on you so you have to pay for that stupid super single tire, and the service call if someone has to come out. Here is a good one for you after 9:00pm on Friday night there is no one in dispatch until 8:00am Saturday, and same thing Saturday night. So if you have a problem you are screwed. How the hell a company with 400 trucks on the road can just close down dispatch is beyond me. And no there is not an emergency on call person. Don't bother to try and call on Saturday during college football season they have nice large flat screen TV's mounted in the dispatch office and can't be bothered with your calls. They will get you home every weekend, but then they start calling you Saturday morning trying to get you to do something because someone in their crack staff has forgotten to cover some loads. I am turning in my notice tomorrow, and can rest assured that it can't get any worse where I am going.
