    Don't go for less than 40cpm for start. And should expect an increase in couple of months. Demand it! And in 6 months 44-50cpm. Try looking for carriers farther from your home. I'm 100%sure you can find some. Everyone is hiring these days. There are prob 4000 available positions in Chicago ;)

    Is it my age or does this statement, I underlined in bold, ring hollow? Why wouldn't you want to pay back for training and schooling? Don't you feel you should have to pay for education?

    US Express and Covenant are both in Chattanooga. There are probably 25 trucking companies in Lebanon, TN area. I believe that Averitt also has some Cracker Barrel routes. At least the last I knew they did. If you can't stick at Averitt for 6 months then you probably will not stick anywhere.
