    Hi everyone. I am a newbie. Fresh out of school and still green behind the ears!

    I have two offers one from Star transportation in TN and the other from FFE.

    Of the two companies which one is the best to go with being new?

    I like Star because they claim to get you home weekly but it seems FFE will give me more miles??

    IF you had to make a choice as a new guy and know what you know now, what would you do?

    Any input would be great!

    Thanks!

    I got lucky at Star.

    EDIT*

    Sorry, named people out personally.

    I'm biased and working for another company now. Of course I'll recommend Star.

    Never worked for FFE

    Has anyone seen any major changes since Covenant bought them?

    I was told the average was 2200-2500 and get home 7-10days for 1-3 days.

    if you are talking about Texas Star Express don't do it you are better off with FFE my husband worked for FFE and they did him right but the owner operator that he worked for did him wrong. I worked in the office a Texas Star Express and if you want to eat then don't go there.

    Actually you are wrong as well, this is for Star Transportation out of Nashville not Star TRANSPORT in Morton.

    The other thread in the DACreports is clearly called 'Star (TN)'

    hard to misinterpret that. This one is for Star out of Morton.
