    Any presently employed drivers out there for Transport America/Eagan, MN with any good remarks to say about them?? I've been at home for a couple of months re-grouping and want to apply to one of the least evils in the trucking field. Are there any to speak of ? Have read all the bad remarks about Marten, Interstate, Crete, etc etc. Doesnt seem like any drivers are happy now a days with any of the larger companies. They cant all be bad, can they? Comebacks appreciated and Happy Trucking!!

    This week I saw four shiny new blue tractors bobtail through Southern WI on Hy. 11. The glare from the sun was blinding. Someone (4) is getting a new truck soon. :biggrin_25517:

    I currently work for T.A., been with them for 8 months now. I average 2500mi a week. They have a lot of freight and will keep you busy if you want to be. I get home every other weekend no problem. The 7 on/7off is jump seat, not teams. No complaints from me about them!!

    It is not a requirement to have a hazmat endorsement but they will push you to get one. TA does haul a lot of hazmat and it does pay an additional .04 cents per mile! It is definitely worth it to have hazmat with this company!
