    I can't DM you because I am new here and don't have 7 posts yet. I am set to graduate in 3 weeks. Top of my class, all endorsements, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. No restrictions. I have made calls to "starter" companies and had recruiters come in. I don't believe everything I read online, and most "reviews" are typically from ex-employees anyways. I don't want to jump into the wrong situation as I am 45 years old and this is a major step in a different direction. Obviously I want the least amount of Orientation and Driver Trainer time before I can get my own rig, but I also understand no one is just going to give me their equipment with zero miles under my belt. I do have a family with young kids, so home time would be great, however I do understand the $$$ and expectation is OTR so I don't mind that. What I would like help with is picking through the crap to find the closest thing to a golden turd I can find. Any help would be appreciated. Side note, of the recruiters I have spoken to if I HAD to choose today I would go with TMC. Decent orientation and driver trainer time (Schneider was ridiculously long), seems like nice equipment (only bad thing I have seen is the 62 governed). I am not sold on the percentage pay over the per mile they do. Again, any help is greatly appreciated.

    Do you have endorsements?
    Probably make decent money at TMC.
    TMC seems like a good company to get the career started. Drivers post they make decent paychecks there.

    It usually helps when posters break up long running sentences into 3 to 4 line paragraphs.

    Just sayin'. ;-)
