    They don't all pay while in CDL school, but do pay while running the roads with a trainer.
    Yellow pays while in cdl school.

    If you are used to working long hours, you should be fine. I just wanted to make sure you understood what you were getting into. OTR does help on your resume and gives you good experience. It's fun to see the country as well. The money really isn't much better than local tho. I do recommend going through a CDL school or community college. Then you're not stuck somewhere. There is also a government grant worth looking into. Also keep in mind that if you can't find anything local right away, OTR will still be an option.
