    I just applied to TA as a new/student driver and would like any feedback on the company. I was told after a 3 day orientation in Indianapolis I would have a 5 week (or so) OTR training period where I was the principle driver. After that there are regional positions available where I can get home most weekends.

    Lots of fed-ex freight. Embrace New Jersey. Every inch of it. You're going often. I personally like it, you reload quickly and on your way.

    100% correct. I used to work for transport america and infact the only reason I left was due to snow storm and death in the family. it was the best company I ever worked for except for hometime. they kept trying to send me in the wrong direction of my house every single day of transit. other than that it was great. sorry for late reply
