    Is that similar to what JBS Carriers does; send you to a private CDL school, then work for them a year. JBS Carriers send you to Roadmaster.

    You could try Crete, I'm with them and they're pretty good.
    They have a dedicated account in Midland, Texas right where you are:

    http://www.cretecarrierjobs.com/job/new-dedicated-top-pay-home-weekly-midland-tx

    Also OTR: http://www.cretecarrierjobs.com/job/02-pay-raise-national-over-road-otr-drivers-texas

    I only know what OTR pays as that's what I'm on.

    As a student you'd get $500 a week in training and then start out at 34-35CPM
    After a year you go to 43-44CPM

    Trainers here are required to have a min of 3 years experience, unlike some companies where you can be one after 6 months.

    $500 in Midland TX??????? Can make that at a Micky Ds in a week. If you can't find work in Midland there's lot more to this story then you are putting out. What's in your past that England is only place you can go?

    Better stick with that. Never going to make that much with CR England. About $4-6 hour for all your time.
     
    Moving Forward and DriverToBroker Thank this.

    I understand, but this job isn't what I want to do

    I'm a driver, it's in my blood, I know the first year is gonna be rough, and it's gonna test everything i have, but if I had the $5,000 to go to trucking school I'd do that, even though I don't know of any companies that hire right out of school

    I don't think anyone is trying to talk you out of driving just making the mistake of wasting your time with CRE. Please do yourself a big favor and exhaust all options before even considering England.
