    I'm in NE Kansas, I started straight out of CDL school last January at 21 years old with a local end dump outfit doing aggregate and asphalt. That was great and all until I just got absolutely sick of the short hops and running hot mix.
    My plan was to go OTR after a year with some flatbed gig, but I'm slowly coming to the realization that not many will consider my local work as good experience.
    I decided to try to get into the liquid asphalt tanker side of my company which has a sleeper truck and is more OTR, but the you-know-what has started hitting the fan as of late (bad equipment, pissy mechanics, wishy washy bosses that cuss you out over the phone). I don't want to waste too much time talking about it though, I'll just say that this isn't what I want to do and I'm looking to go flatbed sooner than I thought.

    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows of some smaller flatbed companies that hire in my area that maybe have manual trucks, good pay, and no nanny cams that would be willing to take me on? Maybe I'm asking too much...
    I would also be interested in other types of freight so long as it pays
    With only 5 months experience my pick is currently melton, but I was going to see if anyone knew of anything off the beaten path first.
    Thanks in advance.
