I figured I would put together a list on who hires out of Florida.
Premier refrigerated transport- office in Orlando
Roehl- depending on where you live, they typically take students north of Orlando
Schneider- some regions such as Orlando and north take students
Swift- terminal in Ocala and maybe orlando as they just bought US Xpress.
Knight- terminal in Lakeland; takes students
Werner- terminal in Lake City; they will take students, and they typically hire you for either teams or OTR from what I’ve gathered from the recruiter
Indian River Transport- must have tanker endorsement, and they hire students
National carriers- they hire students from Tampa and north
Trans Am- they have a orientation place in Tampa and they do hire students for OTR
WEL System- must live within 90 miles of Winterhaven so that when you do drive you leave the truck at the terminal
Leonard’s Express- hire students for OTR.
Windy Hill- hires students, you must sign a contract for one year otherwise you’ll owe a portion of it and the truck must be parked at the Eustis terminal
Tidewater transit- must live within 20 miles of Jacksonville
Southeastern freight lines- they post jobs regularly on the website for current openings
AAA Cooper- they post jobs regularly on their website for current openings
Cypress Truck Lines- hires out of Florida
Melton- hires out of Florida
Paper Transport- check their website for the ZIP Codes on where they hire from
USA truck- from what their website has said they hire out of Lakeland and Jacksonville
CFI- hires north of Orlando
Millis transfer- hires out of Central Florida but I do not know where the lines are drawn
Eagle, Gemini are the fuel haulers that will take students and they post positions regularly on their website
I hope this helps everybody.

The problem with a list like that....is it's only good for right now.
Over time...things change in the trucking world (just like everywhere else)...and 6 months from now....a good chunk of the above could likely be totally obsolete info.
