    I’m a new graduate out of school I wouldn’t recommend going to this company in the middle of them saying I could come today company he told me at the last minute that I couldn’t come because they made a decision that they won’t take new students out of school a total waste of my time glad I didn’t go with them I’ll just stick to a major company

    This company is a ripoff they use safety office to get fire you told me they had a incident reported for 8 months and never told me about it and terminate me for that reason after you do a year in their new trucks they terminate you as a lease purchase and put that truck to company becarefull of the woman name blair in safety she is a nasty person stay away from this company they a rip off charge you for miles that they dont pay you for when you turn in the truck they try to replace everything on and on the truck they are the worst company to work for stay away from this company alot of drivers leaving

  • on 14.04.2022

    I've worked here for years and have had nothing but good experiences I lobe our staff they do everything they can to make us drivers happy ill be here for years to come

  • on 12.04.2022

    So this is how a trucking company allows their employees to represent themselves? Real Honor/Eli is Elias Nolt. Clean up your garbage.

  • on 08.04.2022

    Owner of this company should appear in court in front of a judge based on many crash reports of companies like mine who got hit by them yet they refused to pay for a complete damage from independent estimate of Freightliner service shop or any other shops. The scammers are here so sue them to get your satisfaction!
    They won't pay fully for damages to my right mirror on Pilot parking lot w their driver 78040 illegally moving to the fuel station in Jackson TN. They refused to be accountable!

  • on 06.04.2022

    I apparently had, only time I have been stopped in over 4 years. A speeding notice.
    Drive 300k or more and can't be hired. Or possible the service animal I have. They seemed to be covering that up.

    Best company to drive for best least purchase

  • on 11.01.2022

    Best fleet manager ever MIKE great company to work for we are team drivers and always get the miles we want the home time we need

  • on 05.01.2022

    I would never apply to this job. They have terrible leadership who will not hire very qualified drivers. They are also trying to give themselves 5 stars by having their employees make reviews.

  • on 05.01.2022

    Orientation is great.

  • on 21.12.2021

    Just started here, seems to be alright

  • on 13.12.2021

    One of their trucks ran into the side of me on the highway. I had to chase the driver for several miles, trying to get him to stop. I filed a claim with the company, who told me they had dashcams and would be able to see the event. The video would remove all doubt as to what happened, and make it clear their driver was responsible.

    The company denied responsibility for their actions, and rejected the claim.

    I made the repairs myself, to save them money on labor costs. As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. I have now had to turn over my own dash cam video to my attorney to deal with. All for a simple $300 mirror replacement.

    It's asinine that a company would do business like this.

  • on 10.10.2021

    Great company great pay very willing to work with you

  • on 09.10.2021

    Very family oriented!!

  • on 15.09.2021

    Worked as drivers there got into an accident not our fault. Wife got hurt and was on work comp for awhile then when she got off after a year and a half we called them back up to go back to work for them and they declined us saying she doesn't have 6 months exp in the last year. Now they have a mentor program for students and drivers that haven't been driving in a while to get back to work and they still declined us. They will not tell you why they declined you. So i would stay the heck away from them and there sister company RTI because they are the same way with applicants. Run far away from both company's.

    I have been a company team driver for almost 7 years here. The employees do everything they can to make sure the drivers are taken care of, they treat you like family, not just a driver code. I, myself plan on retiring from here(eventually). Best company I have ever worked for in my 22 years as a driver.

  • on 15.08.2021

  • on 27.07.2021

    I work for this company for about 2 months as a lease purchase driver. Was not a good experience financially for me. The program is set up in a way that makes it very hard for a driver to succeed. Low miles, too many cancel loads, wrong load information and just bad communication between Brokers and dispatch. That will cost YOU money. But if you are looking for a company job they are a lot better. Pay is decent and without worrying about to much. The staff is also friendly and helpful. So in short lease purchase is BIG stay a way!!! but as a company driver go for it.

  • on 23.07.2021

    Great place to work!! Staff that actually listens to their employees from the office to the drivers. TLI keeps their promises

  • on 16.07.2021

    This is my second time driving for TLI and I must say that my experience here has been a good one. I have 9 years of driving experience and I haven’t driven for a company this good. The people are awesome and try their hardest to keep their drivers FIRST! TLI rocks!

    DONT PICKUP LOAD FOR THIS COMPANY THEY NOT PAY FROM 2MONTHS LOAD #883176 Fedx San Bernardino,Ca (05/19/21)To Henderson,Co(05/21/21)

  • on 09.07.2021

    A lot of issues with this company. Please read reviews before taking job here. One employee said they told him they took the 10,000 bonus because they gave him a raise. My first truck had 800,00 plus miles on it, i was getting breakdown pay for the second two weeks of working with them. They got me another truck with 239,000 plus miles and again I was getting breakdown pay, this time for 3 days. They want positive people so that you can be positive while they screw you over.. they hardly ever answer the phone. Me and another driver waited for 2 hours trying to get them on the phone so we can pay a lymper fee so we can get our next load all the other drivers were gone while we were left waiting on our company. I finally started calling recruiters to get in touch with disbatchers.I had to pick up a trailer off another trucking companies property because a driver quit and had that load for three days. Every trailer I picked up from secure lot in Atlanta for 3 days in a row had issues with it, major issues.Their role over rate is very high. The drivers that started with me quit within the first week of working with them. I was the only one who stood around hoping things would get better, I list a lit of time and money.the day I quit is when I started receiving calls. I wanted to warn drivers to not makete I made. Not a place for solo drivers especially.

    So far so good, as long as I make money

    Needs training more then on computer screen

    Friday July 02, 2021. 6:35 AM West of Beach grove TN. TLI driver passing an other truck taking more then two mile to do it. Then would not pull over to right lanes.
    For several miles all traffic plus an other 18 wheeler had to go around on right. I slowed down in right lane, flashed light several times to come over. Never did.

  • on 22.06.2021

    This is a great company to work for. The staff here is amazing, they all work hard to handle your issues. The dm treat you like a human being an that you are part of there family.

  • on 11.06.2021

    I'Ve Been Here 2 Years Now & So Far Tansco Lines Has Been A Great Company To Work For.

  • on 26.05.2021

    GREAT COMPANY, WONDERFUL PEOPLE I have worked for this company for about a year and a half. My fiancé and I run team for them, and I have to say we love it! From the first day they have been friendly and helpful. The recruiters are knowledgeable and helpful with the hiring process, and our DM Holly is the best. Breakdown is caring and actually does call back to follow up to make sure the issue is being resolved, no matter how minor or major. And I HAVE to give a shout out to Nikki in safety! If she calls at all, there is a reason, and she is always professional and friendly. There is no other safety person in the world we have ever missed when they don't call!!
    A lot of companies talk about being a family, this company actually walks the walk.

    Don't care about drivers

  • on 18.12.2020

    My fiancé was driving for them and had a seizure while driving. After an MRI and CT scan at the hospital it was discovered he has a brain tumor. No one from the company never called to inquire of his condition. I had to call to track down his truck and belongings because safety couldn’t help me with that info. I’d think a representative would have shown just a little empathy for a driver who was in an accident. So disconcerting.

  • on 09.12.2020

    This company claims that the driver really matters , but explain when the temperature was 12 degrees out side and they wouldn't even put me and my co driver and I up in a hotel until it could be approved and by the way which never happened because the truck would blow no heat . Yeah , tell that to some poor driver who knows better.

  • on 03.11.2020

    This company was very good to me until right at the end. I was promised a dedicated team run. Then they fired my DM and things fell apart.

    I have now returned to this company. Through my own research I figured out that my former DM was the problem. I now have a DM who was a former Assistant. We were offered a wonderful dedicated run at the money we asked for. In addition we have already received a raise as a reward for always being willing to go that extra mile.

    No company is perfect but this is as close as I've seen. Call Meagan my recruiter. She's awesome!

  • on 25.09.2020

    Tli is best company. They never make you down once you at TLI . When they says miles means miles you are running and making good money.
    Each and every person who work at the office no matter who they feel you as a family member.
    You're welcome to the office all the time .
    If you have questions you call the office they have all the answers for you . Lots of good

  • on 30.07.2020

    Everything was good in the beginning with this company great pay and good miles then all of a sudden they changed how I was getting paid .46-.52 cpm to $1050 every week don’t matter the miles I drive each week it was a set pay. Just stay away from the CH Robinson account it’s straight bull

  • on 20.07.2020

    Currently a team driver. Excellent company. Nice staff. Mike B super good. Megan Wilson excellent. Everyone is very nice ,good mileage. I love this family .

  • on 11.03.2020

    My husband and I have been Team Drivers with TLI since November of 2019. The experience here has been awesome! Communication is key and once you communicate what you need with your Recruiter, Driver Manager, Payroll, Human Resources, Maintenance, etc., they will do their best to get it done and in a timely manner! Need more miles? They give more miles! My Driver Manager and his team are top notch! We would definitely recommend Transco Lines!

  • on 27.01.2020

    very nice company,everyone is really nice and try to take care of you my driver manager is awesome

  • on 10.12.2019

  • on 07.11.2019

    I love working for TLI, very laid back company, I push myself rather than the company pushing me. I get hometime when i want it, great miles. And wonderful family atmosphere. Best company i have ever worked for.

  • on 06.11.2019

    Do not drive for this company I have been here for a year and I had my toe amputated do to the blood flow in my legs I was a lease purchase driver there and talking to my fleet manager prior they took opond there self to repo my truck without a phone call now with leg I got to go get my stuff out my truck this is a terrible place to work.

  • on 05.11.2019

    Transco Lines has been the best Trucking Company i have ever worked for and i have been in the business for 29 yrs. Dispatchers respect the drivers, get you great miles, hometime when you want it. Great equipment as well. They also have one of the best L/P programs i have come across.
    Over All they are the Best of the Best!!!

  • on 29.10.2019

    Great Company. The Dispatchers are great and work with the Drivers. Your treated like a person and not a number like some other companies. IF you want to succeed this is the place

  • on 27.10.2019

    Good, but once u make mistake, u will be fired.

  • on 02.10.2019

    I've been with TLI for just over 3 years, and it's been a great experience.
    I enjoy working with the staff and the other drivers. TLI dispatchers are great at communicating with the drivers.

  • on 02.10.2019

    I have been been with Transco Lines over 2 years now and they have delivered on every promise. I am especially gratetful to our amazing dispatch team for the hard work they do to get us the miles and home time we want. I team drive and we make as much money as we want, because they always have as much work as we are willing and able to do. Daniel-

  • on 24.09.2019

    Recently transitioned to this company! It was a great experience. Everyone was great from the recruiter to management. Am on a dedicated route & it is great. Also great pay. Recommend this company to drivers looking for a good reliable company.

  • on 24.09.2019

    I’m living my best life since I have been working for Transco Lines Inc. known as TLI. Great Pay and benefits. Sign on bonuses are the best. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends.

    this is a great place to be. everybody in safety is very nice they really has your back. Lesley is very sweet person she makes sure that your taken care of. been here 2 yrs and it's been good so far.

    My team partner and I are lease purchasing and have only been here 1 month. It seems as though everything we’ve been told coming in the door has been a lie. From having two full weeks free of no truck payments; to running great miles. Last week our settlement was only $40 after paying our bills concerning the truck. Every week, we as a team run about 3,500 miles total, and we find ourselves sitting because of shortage of runs. We’ve reached out to several people about dedicated accounts because we see they’re hiring for them on various websites. However, we’ve been trying to get on a dedicated account since we’ve been here, and we’re constantly being lied to and given the run around. There’s a 2. plus star rating for a reason, heed the reviews and don’t waste your time! I guess they save their best accounts for those of their choosing. Other than that, you could do better as a company driver somewhere elsewhere!!!

  • on 16.07.2019

    Was a ok company when first stared but after a couple months it gets bad. They only hire lease purchase to start out. If you are in the negative and your truck break down find another company because they will fire you . They don’t pay there bonus they promise you and they don’t pay detention or layover . They keep you at a certain amount of miles per week . Have good equipment but dispatchers talk to you any kind of way . Only way to make money is staying out 2 months at a time

  • on 28.06.2019

    I have been working there they are not really good people they pushing you to much

  • on 18.06.2019

    No one ever leaves the good reviews about companies! Remember you only read their side but there is always 2 sides. The bad reviews on here is so different from our experience we have had with TLI. My husband has worked for several trucking companies (trust me there is some really awful ones) and Transco Lines has definitely been the best he has worked for! If you are willing to work they will do you good. No company is perfect and will mess up but give them a chance to fix it before you just walking away ;). Good pay and home time! (he is a owner operator/lease purchase for TLI for almost a year now)

  • on 13.06.2019

    This place is horrible....they dont get you home when they are supposed husband's dispatcher is the absolute worse...she does not communicate with my husband ..she will only answer by text and doesn't tell him if a load has cancelled after he has already almost made it there and spent half his fuel getting there...then when he called Al the vice president he was absolute no help and told my husband he didnt have time to take care of the problem he had a motorcycle ride to get to....

  • on 25.05.2019

    Let me start off by saying, if I could give this company negative stars I would. If you are looking for Job please do yourself a favor and keep looking. I’ve been a professional Driver for 16yrs I’ve seen the industry change throughout my yrs and I’ve been with a lot of companies. This company here is by far the worst I’ve driven for.

  • on 22.03.2019

    Amazing company. Hands down best for Lease purchase/teams. They are always ready and willing to help. I highly recommend this company. Awesome pay. Great home time. Never had any issues.

  • on 08.03.2019

    TLI is by far the one of the worst companies in the Industry. If you want to ruin your financial goal for the year. Waist your time with TLI. Trust me, It will be next year before you recover the lost of money and time.. AWFUL EXPERIENCE. They make their drivers feel lower than a Ant. RUN FROM THIS COMPANY

  • on 24.01.2019

    Only leaving this reveiw cause I needed the address.The dispachers were cool enough, But this place place couldent seem to get the pay right with me. Was told i would start at .52 cpm, to 50 to, to we cant pay you more than .48 cpm. Later started giving me 450 to 580 mile runs daile and it was only after I decided to leave that they gave me decent mile. But my mind was set.

    Most unprofessional company i have ever worked for!!!
    Just let go 4 days before christmas.

  • on 16.11.2018

    Really unprofessional company. They won't give you the miles you need to make money then they charge you for not making a quota. They don't even give you the courtesy of letting you know its coming. Then they piss your drivers off and make them quit and call your drivers and offer them jobs and tell them they will get all the miles if they are Company drivers. We had 3 trucks on there and within 2 months had 3 drivers quit. Its ridiculous they are out to take your money not help you succeed.

  • on 28.10.2018

    Great people JB tk 75001

  • on 26.08.2018

    This company is very unorganized and extremely unethical. First their training was suppose to last 3 days, but do to the DIRECTOR OF SAFETY LAURA WOLFE being soooo unorganized that didn’t happen!! The guys had to check out of the room on the 3rd day and take all their belongings with them to training room, just to find out hours later that they would be there another day, with no explanation as to why!! So a situation happen where a driver had to get back home ( keep in mind he was originally told he would be there for 2 1/2 days) to take care of personal business matter with his attorney and when he advised LAURA WOLFE of this she automatically assumed he was a criminal. Not sure if it’s because he is black ( I have my reason for saying this) but, because he would not tell her what business he had to attend and why he had to speak to his attorney she advised him to leave. Now keep in mind they rented a car for him to get to Arkansas and he was suppose to pick up a truck and drive it back (which he also found out the trucks was already at the location) So he was responsible for getting himself back home. That speaks volume about her as a person and the company integrity. Do you really want you or your loved ones working for a company like this. If they did it to him they will do to you as well. They don’t care about you and your only as good as you are worth to them!!! There is absolutely no excuse for LAURA WOLFE behavior!! She should be ashamed of herself, but again it’s the “trucking” industry right!!!!

    I love TLI

  • on 04.08.2018

    They will call you on your time off and harrass you.... I have a new DM for about 2 weeks named Jose... I've been running this particular dedicated way before he started ... Never picked up late and never delivered late except 1 time which was because fed ex canceled the load... They then made us run off our route then got us back on our route w/o us getting out 34hr reset which caused us to pickup late that one time... So now I'm on my 34 at home as usual the DM called me and said we not good enough to run this load... I have every BOL since I've been here and every load number and every bill stamped and dated... Not one was late... The reason he said this is because I took off a week to see my daughter graduate but I have pictures of the QC and date that I asked for this time off and the date it was approved.... Now remind y'all my DM I've only been working with for 2 weeks and I've been there almost a year... Thus company it's they way or no way... They only do dedicated and his words out of his mouth was basically... We offering you otr or if we don't take that they was going to fire us for nothing.... Like I said I have every bill stamped, time & dated since me and my first team partner started until now... Also have text messages and phone calls where the call non stop on my 34hr reset, and I have text messages from this new DM... Not only that every bonus I earned was always paid late and thats on the check stubs to prove it along with my contract I first signed.... This is not a pleasant company at all... If you need time off or have an emergency and you are on a dedicated they will take you off that dedicated because they don't have no other drivers to rotate and help... Except the time that me and my co driver had to come off our dedicated to help (which I have records of that to) listen to these reviews .... Everything is correct and came from drivers.... Except the one recruiter below which was my recruiter ... Which is the only person who goes out her way and help you ....I been here almost a year and was promised a new truck still haven't gotten it... Every truck you get into it have 600000+ miles on it... Mine is almost 700000 miles... You have to get your pm done on your 34 hr reset which is illegal, (I have proof of that & they still force you to take your run even if you didn't complete your 34) anything wrong with the truck you have to do it on your time off or 34hr reset

  • on 21.07.2018

    Lots of changes in last 6 months. It is getting better here. TLI is not for everyone. It’s great for those of us who are tired of running 48 states. I get aggravated with them. They get aggravated with me as well. I’ve had my fair share of problems but Bradley is easy to talk to and gets most problems fixed in a timely manor. My only real complaint is it pays short miles. If they would pay practical miles I might would rate them a 5 Star Carrier.

    Awesome Trucking Company

  • on 26.02.2018

    I started in Feb 2018. They sent me post orientation(2.5days) about 700mi to pick up a 780 Volvo, with 654000mi on it. First load out of Dalton GA; did not exist. Waited nearly 2 days. Then had to repower a load for a team. Finally get rollin. Following week, I got left in Louisiana from Mon-Fri (34hr started at 11a on Mon). At that point, I got a load to Chicago, called dispatch, got permission to drop truck at a yard in Chicago. I walked. On my way to another company orientation, the VP of Transco-TLI called me. Heard him out. Decided to come back. Now, as of today, after exacty 7days, ive logged in 375mi. Truck has been in 2 shops in 4 days. This 2nd one, Ive been here, in motel, since Fri and its Mon.
    Im not sure what to think. I know the breakdowns are not their fault, but man this just sucks. Rough start? Yep. I cant seem to get along with my DBL either.
    Now, Im suppose to be in an airport 750mi from here, for a sm vacation (hometime) in 2.5days.
    Im not looking to jump jobs so much, but their breakdown pay is a whopping 50.00 a day. I cant survive on that.
    I want to work for them, I was a referral.. but man.

  • on 15.01.2018

    Went to work

  • on 21.12.2017

    This company made me go through they're entire orientation to jus send me home claiming I didn't participate in orientation enough because I was going to the restroom to much I had the stomach flu and was throwing up allot guess they would have rather me throw up in the classroom sent me home even after I passed the driving,backing and all the written test and I have a clean CSA/PSP record and clean driving record no violations at all I was working for Southern Refrigerated Transport with a trainer I have 22yrs experience and didn't need to be with a trainer and they bugged me to get off the truck so I got off in Little Rock and started orientation all for nothing but a long bus ride back to Arizona with no money to eat or drink on this company may be for some people but my experience with them was horrible the instructor Kim had an issue with me from the minute I met her never got a warning or anything about going to the restroom it came time for them to issue our trucks and a girl from safety came and got me took me to her office and told me I didn't participate in orientation enough and I was going home she didn't want to hear it I had the stomach flu and was throwing up allot so with that said don't quit the job you have to go to this company stay where you are or you could be in this situation.......12/15/2017

  • on 16.11.2017

    Negative reviews I saw were all from driver's who did not qualify to drive for TLI, too many jobs, way too many CSA/PSP violations etc. accidents not listed and/or disclosed, and so on.
    Happy driver's don't have time to surf the internet posting their negativity for the world to see because they are busy working and loving their job! No company is perfect, no company is without fault, we are very family oriented and Terry Wallace is one of the greatest men I have ever had the pleasure of working for, he cares about all of his drivers and shows that on a day to day basis.

    When all you see is 1star rating in a trucking company in its a reviews and talk to drivers on the road and hear nothing but complaint after complaint what makes you think?? So I had to try and give a call. Talk about a hoax. Recruiters made me laugh .. we will give you all the miles you want. Lol sounds like no miles. But when you see people posting a 5 star and review saying 1 star is grain of salt that person is either a kiss ass or a I'll bend over for anyone in the company. For example just scroll 2 spots down. Sounds like this company trying to push slot of dirt under the rug. C'mon drivers wake up do your research better......
