    I recommend Cypress Truck Lines in Jacksonville. Seemed to be a good company. Mostly pre-tarped loads. Pay is .40/.40 (loaded/empty) for six months. After that, it was .46/.46 IIRC. You’ll also get a newer truck. Terminal is a dump, though. Driver lounge is pathetic. CRT TV on a cider block table, Goodwill couch, etc.

    Word to the wise: if you know yourself that you can do the heavy lifting part of the job, don’t tell them about any surgeries or injuries you’ve had in the past. With HIIPA laws, they won’t find out.

    I mean like a knee injury from H. S. football, or in my case, a 12 year old inguinal hernia mesh surgery. I got sent home. Workers comp company wouldn’t cover me.

    If you go with them, tell Randy “Hernia Man” says hi, and ask him how “Big Mac Eating Non-Backing Fatboy” is doing.

    Seriously, I think they’d be a good place to start.

    Also, Cypress has local jobs and OTR if you want it.

    Their top driver is an OTR guy. I believe he said he made something like $125,000 as a company driver. He has a youtube channel, but he’s hard to watch. He sucks on his douche-flute the entire time and sounds like Darth Vader.

    Whatever you do. Don’t accept a job with BillyBob’s Alligator Eatery. Their drivers disappear. They don’t quit. Not fired. They just disappear. Into thin air!?
