    I’m currently in the hiring phases for both companies. However, im unsure of which I should go with. Any opinions? (I’m 23 with 0 experience)

    I appreciate it! Superior sounds like a great company but the being home every night would be nice.

    They're both good companies.
    Probably make more money with Estes once you get a line haul run.
    Still, you'll make great money with either company.
     
    AzTrucker13 Thanks this.

    Since you don't have experience, is Estes going to put you on their "dock to driver" program? That's a good program for newbies.
     
    AzTrucker13 Thanks this.

    Estes offered me the dock worker and yard jockey kind of job. Then said I would go to their school in April. At which point I would still be a trainee for awhile afterwards. Then they said I would be combo local and regional. They said it’s mainly loading trucking and then delivering them. Which is probably pretty decent but I don’t really want to be a big rig doing ups/fedex style deliveries. If I’m wrong in that thinking, please correct me.

    Also said, I would be doing a lot of long hours and such as a dock worker. Which I don’t mind. But they said overtime doesn’t start paying until 55 hours. I’ve always worked on salary. So I’m not sure if that’s industry norms or not.
