    Last I heard, Heartland Express had a months-long wait list for students needing trainers. I was told that most of the trainers at H.E. went over to CFI after the former bought the latter. But I would definitely check that out for myself if I were you. Post your general location and you'll get better recommendations. I'm sure @Chinatown will be along soon to lend a hand

    If Western Express will hire you, better go for it.
    @bryan21384 got a good start there.
    Speeding ticket 60 in a 40 narrows your choices.

    I’d choose Western Express. They’re at least up front with letting the driver know what a scumbag they are. Heartless Excuse will whisper sweet nothings to your face whilst treating you like scum behind your back.
