    Hello,

    I saw job postings for companies like Western Dairy. I like the idea of tanker driving for food and not haz mat. Are there tanker companies that have CDL schools where I can work for them once I'm through schools. I'm calling Western Dairy, Schneider and Stevens Transport today to ask them directly about tanker driving. Are there others that I should consider? I will move for the job, but would prefer not to go further west than Texas.

    Thank you.

    They must've changed that because they used to take newbies all the time.

    Prime has a good tanker division but very few tanker trainers. You could wait a long long time after school before getting a tanker trainer. It could be such a long wait you decide to give up and pull reefers instead. Prime has a tanker driver on YouTube named John Ogren. Great videos.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    Will you be under a 1 year contract? Is the tanker division getting any miles? From what I've seen that's a bit or miss with them.
