As others have posted there is no "should" in terms of company reimbursement.
Generally companies do reimburse for travel that occurs from an employee's home office during the course of business -- i.e if one has to take a meeting at another office. However, as others have advised I would be hesitant to push for reimbursement since often what someone is *told* during the interview process doesn't comport exactly with what actually happens. In his circumstances, I might ask a co-worker in passing as part of a general conversation on the corporate "culture".
It's not clear whether the job location is fixed at Location A and sometimes he must go to Location B after he has arrived at Location B. I believe that it makes a difference in terms of tax consequences since one is just a long commute and the other is an non-reimbursed business expense.
Some days I pray for Silence, Some days I pray for Soul,
Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock 'N' Roll.
