    Rarely a post about them.
    Plenty of good team companies for new drivers though.
    Where do you live; city/state?

    Pride Transport
    Decker Truck Line
    Abilene Motor Express
    Safer Transportation

    Plenty more depending on the hiring area you live in.

    Good location; here's some more team outfits to add to the list:

    Benny Whitehead Trucking - Eufaula,AL
    Cargo Transporters
    Covenant Transport - higher pay if you have hazmat endorsement.
    East-West Express
    SVTN
    Midwest-coast Transport
    Tyson Foods

    There's a good company for solo drivers with one yr. experience right there in Albany; Southern Ag Carriers.

    I have been with TA for over a year now, from my experience they have been a good company. My old trainer drives team for them now, him and his wife do pretty good. Other than that I cant say much about the team side of things.

    My boyfriend & I just finished our first trip out with them. We are very happy with the company so far. Their student driver training program seems solid. The sense I got is they don't let just anyone train recent CDL graduates just because they want to. They have certified driver trainers. The company culture is friendly and relaxed. They are a small company with a big company feel. We got good miles, communication with dispatch was friendly and prompt. We got paid what we expected and reimbursed on the next check for any expenses (tolls, etc). I wish I had known about them when I started driving.

    i drove for them from 2012-14 and i love them. Since your from GA you will be out of the ATL location. which is the biggest one i seen. I don't know any info about the Team driving but the Regional program is good.
