    its not that bad, you carry some weights around in a basket, you climb a ladder for like 2 mins, you step up on a step stool for like 2 mins, you do a duck walk

    Hey Trucker Smith, I am moving back to Indiana soon and have a Indiana drivers license. Does TA have a terminal in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne.
    Can you answer a few questions for me , sorry if they have been asked before.

    I will be a new grad and CDL holder will they hire me ?
    What type equipment (trucks and transmissions) and can you drive them home ?
    Do you have to go to Mexico,Canada ?
    I will be a solo driver where all do they go ?
    Do they have a lot of dry van jobs ?
    Do I need to attend an accredited school and if so do you know which ones ?
    And what about pay and bonus ?
    Thanks

    Dennis

    And what about pay and bonus ? new grads pay is OTR after orientation and training is .36 cpm and if you have hazmat end and a hazmats load you will get .40 cpm for that load only. and Reg is .34 com without hazmat end. with have hazmats end you will get .38 cpm all the time. and bonus is how you do and stuff like that.

    Hey everyone! I currently work for Falcon Transport in Youngstown, Ohio. I'm thinking about going to Transport America. They want me to do a regional run (Ohio, Northern Indiana, and Southern Michigan.) Home every night, might be gone one night a week. I read, you have to be out 21 days. Is that just for the OTR driver and new drivers. I have a year of experience. Thanks everyone.

    Hello everyone,
    Do they have terminal or at least drop yard in NJ anywhere close to NYC ? I don't have a place to park where I live so if I'd go with them I'd need to known where I'd park a truck for a hometime
