    Yepper...Florida is real bad right now to get any type of job. I have 5yrs exp. and want something local as I will not go back OTR without my other half and he does not want to do OTR any more....

    So I have applied to all sorts of places, grocery stores, department stores etc etc...nothing, not even a return call...except for Trucking companies wanting me to go back OTR...~lol~

    Might have to move out of this place...

    My husband & I have been speaking with someone who is in the Lakeland area. He is leaving a major company and is in the process of setting things up with another company that has been in business for many years. I can give you his contact info if you're interested. It might be what you're looking for. He's very nice and seems genuinely interested in helping out drivers.

    IMO.TRUCKING ''GETTING STARTED'' IS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE IN DYER NEED AND DESPERATION...

    I am sorry but the system is set up for someone who is in a very hopeless place in there life and desperate...They think bye being a ''trucker''

    it is a get rich quick scheme....and of course it IMO

    WHew I was getting worried their for a min.

    I've been with this company for 12 years. Times been great and now times are really bad. Dont think I've ever see it this bad.

    My boss could have shut down the trucking part, Now 9 trucks. But he's doing us a favor by trying to stay afloat.

    I can tell u for sure, I'm NOT getting rich :-(

    Hint: a company like Swift WILL hire you. They will hire almost ANYONE. Just say you are moving to New Jersey and they will slobber all over themselves to get you on...tell them you do NOT need to get home to Florida. Get on, hire a moving company, tell Swift that, etc. Get up some money and make it happen if you want to. I am serious...tell them what you are going to do and they'll get you on. IF you say you want to stay in Florida (in the sun and palm trees), they'll tell you to take a hike...
