    I've been waiting until after the holidays to make the switch. As far as what a "newbie" should start with depends on that persons preferences when it comes to hometime, pay etc.

    Merry Christmas to you as well. For the most miles and pay you most certainly want Glass.

    How long do you have to be in flatbed before switching to glass? Do you have to go to a whole nother orientation?

    I
    I was flatbed for 5 years and went to North Little Rock for 4 days of glass training. Because I'm an established driver at Maverick there was no need to go through the entire process again.
