    Good Evening,
    I am thinking about getting back into the industry, I drove for Werner briefly (twice, didn't learn my lesson the first time apparently). Anyway, I don't particularly want to do OTR but I will bear it to gain enough experience to find a local job. Southeast Regional would be preferable, hard to find work in Florida. anyway, I would like to avoid mega carriers if possible. Here's some of the companies I've been looking into. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.
    Windy Hill Transport
    Freymiller
    RE West
    NFI
    Maybe Millis?? not sure
    I really was hoping to get J&R Schuegel but they don't hire out of FL.
    Thanks!

    How much experience do you have?
    How long since you've driven?

    Here's one in Hastings which is 50 miles from Stark.
    Ad says CDL-B, but a CDL-A is good for that.

    Ask about our Student Program if you have a CDL A, but not enough experience.

    I did 6 months in 2016 and 3 months in 2019. Most of the companies I’ve spoke to said my experience doesn’t count as it’s not “recent enough”. I’ve got an app in at Davis, and National Carriers. I’ll look into the other two.
