    Hi, I live in Cleveland, TN and I have an opportunity to drive for a dedicated account hauling steel coils and running 5 states out of Knoxville, TN for TMC. I was told I would average between $1000 and $1200 a week and be home weekly. The only thing I'm not crazy is the home time. I was told that I would get home Thursday and leave out Saturday each week but I guess it could be worse. So, with all that being said, does anyone here that has experience with TMC think that this is worth it? I know that TMC has good and bad reviews but I would like some insight from some current or former TMC drivers. Thanks

    most likely running with a covered wagon setup, definitely ankle to make what they say, but their hometime on that account sucks as you only get your 34 at home. Its really your choice though

    Yeah, the home time is the only thing I'm hesitant about. It doesn't sound terrible but I'm going to give it some thought. I appreciate the help .

    What kind of experience do you have? Are you dead set on legal size only fright? Cause i know of a company over in Winchester tn that's needing drivers and their home time is very liberal. Good family owned business, not the mega size like tmc.

    This company would take you, assuming your background is clean.
