    Our resident recruiter, Chinatown, probably sawing logs right now, (9pm in China) but he'll steer you straight. Lots of great companies, don't fall for the bottom of the barrel ones. If I were you, I'd haul mail.

    What type of trucking are you looking to do? It shouldn't be hard to find companies paying 60 a mile nowadays. The fact that you want to run is good. To be honest with you running 3k a week gets pretty old very quickly. To each his own. Let's see what we can come up with. You're in a good area anyway the east side of the country. You could run that "headache 95" and make what you need right there.

    I mean.... @Chinatown has given you some really good choices in one of your other threads. It ain't every week that you will get 3000 miles, and then to get to 60 cpm, you'll either need some longevity at one company or hazmat. Have tried JNJ Express out of Memphis? They're pretty incentive laden

    Driver, take bad reviews with a pinch of salt. Unless it's the vast majority, it could be just a few disgruntled drivers lashing out. As for age, I'm 55 and happily making .70 cpm pulling tankers/hazmat with TWIC card.

    Over the years I've worked for a medium sized company, two small ones and three megas. None were honest. Some are less dishonest than others. That's just my personal experience. Your results may vary.
