TPD training school
I been in Arkansas at the TPD school today I’m leaving at 11:50 am using my own money to get back to Houston this school has been one of the worse experience and today was the last straw. My roommate not only ran up on me in front of everyone outside of the hotel but also threaten me due to her own personal problems this isn’t the first time she went off on me the night before she went off on me because I didn’t tell another student he needs to switch rooms like he was told to do that’s not my job to keep up with every student at the school. From day one of sharing rooms with Caroline it has been hell in hot water. If you ask the hotel to run back the camera all night she’s end and out slamming the door smoking cigarettes cursing being ghetto it got to the point I keep my AirPods on just to get some sleep. Dealing with that everyday having to listen to her go off on her boyfriend constantly getting waken up for someone going off on me. Yet she also went off on the guy that’s been driving the van for Pam. You can ask him yourself not only did she go off threaten people numerous times with the pepper spray she carry in her purse. Dealing with her then coming to school not getting properly trained tops it. Only receiving to reps for Parallel parking within 6 hours back door asking the instructor Sean how to parallel park he worse then the students he couldn’t even do it himself. How are we suppose to pass a cdl test with a trainer that can’t even parallel park themselves. I’ve been head sense October 18,2023 one the worse experiences in the world. I assume the trainer with tpd would be the same experience as the sponsorship schools but it’s not. Nobody is on the same page for the pretrip either that’s the main thing you have to pass. Being told if people bring complains to Pam they’ll get kick out of tpd program. How are you guys paying for someone tuition they not even learning the bare minimum to pass. What sucks the most is the instructors don’t even want to be there and stating their last month is December treason why they sent back and watch students struggle. You can’t expect anybody to learn a maneuver when your own instructor can’t do it and constantly saying they getting ready to leave
Claimed loss: $400 plus $4500 school loan
Desired outcome: Not paying no loan for training I didn’t receive
Driver in East Texas area
Last night, 1/31/23 at around 9pm, a driver for your company was on Hwy 79 South. in East Texas. The driver got in behind me just south of where Hyw 79 and FM 42 intersect. I applied my brakes to get the driver to back off. This apparently did nothing to slow the speed of the truck. I again applied my brakes for a longer period of time and did not try to regain speed. To the driver, this must have meant to get closer and use bright lights. This continued for almost 10 miles before the lights were dimmed and the driver backed off.
Most of this stretch of road is just 2 lanes with very few passing lanes, It was sleeting and a light mist was falling, making the roadway slippery. When I got to the closest passing lane, I moved over to let them go past. Unfortunately, I did not think about getting a truck number until the truck was way ahead of me. I was unable to catch up to the truck, even at 65 miles per hour. I realized that the driver had somewhere to be. So did I, and my goal is to arrive at my destination with minimal amount of personal injury to myself or others.
East Texans are not overly familiar with driving in winter weather. I also own the roadway, as well as anyone else, since I do have to pay taxes. I work in the medical field and I have to respond if I am first on the scene of an accident. That would be a difficult issue for me to move anger out of my heart and treat such a selfish person, should they had been involved in an accident.
Desired outcome: not sure of company policy, but if the driver could be found and a letter of demerit be given, perhaps that may help with the driver's disregard of his former self.

Misuse of information
I drive for PAM and was never told if my spouse posts a video on her face book page sitting in the passengers seat the company has the right to assume she is driving the vehicle or make claims of such ...Which they did they called me on my home time accusing me of letting her drive the tractor which never was true in the first place them she made another video showing the reason why it looked like she was in her cell phone she has 2 cameras one facing front the second flips the image to reverse about 1 hour later the head supervisor of PAM Safety called me and basically showing no respect or regards for the issue at hand began telling me no one will disrespect the drivers or the company personnel which I agree with But He felt compelled to do it to me and on top of it all proceeded to go off about something my wife posted on HER page for HER kids, I had to move the vehicle several times due to street sweeping and limited parking in the area I was in and in doing so forgot I was logged off the QUALCOMM so He didn't want to discuss the issue instead he demanded I come to HQ so he can talk to me about this as well again with no respect to me after I spoke to one of his subordinates with total respect I'm thinking this other person told him I was being disrespectful to him this is what caused this guy to act like this towards me which was uncalled for along with my spouses passenger permit being expired so he claims but this is what happens when PAM keeps you running a dedicated lane from Clarksville TN to Laredo TX so you cant get into a terminal unless you have mechanical issues only paying you 32cpm for all those miles and taxing you to death ...Just goes to show they like to misuse face book information that belongs to your family as ammo to fire at you I admit I moved the truck off the logs that was my mistake Yes but as for the remainder of it this company cares nothing about your personal privacy and Infringes upon your personal information to suit them best BEWARE of this tactic.
I was hit by their company
I was parked legally at a truck stop in Austintown OH. Their driver drove in and hit me. They have dragged their feet in getting this done. As of right now I will be off 4 weeks and the truck has not been touched. I have had an estimate for 3 and a half weeks. I'm an owner operator. My fiance has had to file chapter 13 in order to keep the house and vehicle. DO NOT HAVE ANY DEALINGS WITH PAM TRANSPORT. THEY LIE TO THE PUBLIC ABOUT HOW THEY LIKE THEIR DRIVERS. THEIR TURN OVER RATIO IS A JOKE. LAWYER UP A JUST SERVE THEM. Make them go to court.
I'm complaining about the schooling
The school sucks, they don't teach you anything in there, they tried to teach you everything and one day" or just expect you to learn it they could care less" driver Solutions in C1 only care about getting their money and Pam could care less" they don't even talk to the students" they don't give you time to sleep or study or anything
OK i have been working for Pam for 3 Months it has only been a nightmare with them. They have no communication in the main office I have had 4 Dm"s (Dispatcher) in three months. Two told me they was quitting because of bad management and they were treated like dirt.(welcome to the Pams driver world) They have no respect for the driver at all and they threaten to fire you when you have to try and get home fast.(without them taking three weeks to get you home)They say that they pay for your CDL School if you stay with them a year (Well don't believe that) The school cost $5000 when you go to work for them they take $50 a week out of your check to pay toward the school. Thats come to $2600 for a year that half of the cost. But it dont stop there, if you don't pay anything to go to school which is what drivers solutions want when you go to for Pam they pay you .25 cents a mile if you pay for your school they pay you .34 cents per mile that .09 Cents per mile diff. They want you to run team but were going to use a solo as a example here.They say that as a solo you can average 3000 miles per week.(6000 for team) Times 52 weeks that 156000 miles a year. So if you take .09 x 156000=14, 040 a year that they keep for them to pay for your school. Add that to the $2600 they hold out of your check each week that comes out to $16, 640 you are paying for them to pay for your school. As a solo i'm only getting maybe on the best week 1800 miles per week. I have talk to team drivers and they are getting 3500 miles a week.They pay 17.5 cents a mile for team that only $612.50 a week by the time that they take money out for school and other things you might bring home $300 for the week.Use you own judgement about going to work for Pam but if you want to pay $16, 000 for a cdl go ahead I made that mastake.
My husband and I weren't even making ends-meet when he decided to go into the trucking industry. He stumbled upon the driver solutions website and we both thought it would be a good idea since he wasn't having good luck with getting a job our here. Well, he applied and was contacted by a man named Brian Kelly I believe. We went through a process of...Read full review of PAM Transport and 115 comments
