    Schneider doesn't have a pet policy. That's a deal breaker for me so they're out of the question.

    I've been making phone calls to recruiters gathering up info. Here's what I have so far.

    All the info was from calling recruiters. I know they have a tendency to sugar coat things to get people to sign up, so take it for what it is.

    Here's the form I'm using to add info just in case anybody wants to add some info. Please only recent info.

    So far, I'm leading towards Werner versus the other companies I have listed. Covenant if I can find a decent partner to team drive with. But I've heard they don't actually give you the 10c/m raise they're advertising.

    Just don't do a lease purchase because I will find you and strangle you.

    I'm heading back to El henderson on the 27th, I've been with them before and I was a lease op and a trainer and made great money, I also live in vegas so feel free to hit me up for more info on any companies you're thinking of. I'll shoot ya straight, and maybe ease your transition a bit. Let me know when u r looking to go on the road and maybe if henderson is you thing then I can arrange to be your trainer.

    Navajo Express has been getting some good rep as of late. I remember it was not just a year ago most people would go "stay away from Navajo."

    Prime allows you to have pets and you start at .43cpm not many starter companies can beat that.
    we also run late model equipment probably one if the most fuel efficient company, our new trailers combined with trucks we run anywhere from 7.5 to 10mpg. .. company runs 2013 freightliner Cascadia evolutions and newer, you will make $500 guaranteed while training our owners door is always open. And drivers are allowed anywhere in any of our buildings Can't speak for any of the other companies, but prime treats their drivers right. any questions your welcome to pm me I'll be glad to help you out good luck with you journey

    I don't know much about them, but research U.S. Express. I know they allow pets.
