    I just left TA and I got to tell you it was a great company a year ago when I hired on but at the end of June they were bought buy a Canadian co. Trans Force and thing are going down hill fast. I've been watching a hugely dysfunctional upper management get even worse. They are progressively becoming like Crete were it's all about blame game and pointing the finger and cover your ###. I find it hard to focus on the job when I have to watch everything I do and every message I send or don't send or how my messages are worded. You won't believe how crazy that can be. Oh yeah don'y let them get you in an office with a phone conversation because they will call it something therapeutic but it a bully fest! I did it twice and my response was if you have an issue fire me! Otherwise leave me to my work. They are masters at focusing on the pettiest crap and blowing it up into a major issue and of course it's your fault. Good luck to you is all I got to say.

    So where do you park the rig and trailer while on home time?
    An authorized lot like a Cummins or Detroit dealer?
