    I rather be homeless than live in the PNW. Didn’t think Vegas would be this competitive for a local CDL job. Might have to relocate again to the Midwest to get some fuel hauling experience.
     
    Zonno Thanks this.

    As a last resort -- check out the websites for the carriers you see in your area.

    Also -- speak to drivers of those same fleets.

    You may well uncover opportunities that otherwise go unposted -- or unadvertised.

    Over here in Georgia -- Florida Rock & Tank Lines is A-L-W-A-Y-S advertising for drivers (even in this current job market).

    But I think there are good reasons for that.

    Florida Rock is never hiring. I literally called the recruiter the same day when they posted a position in Cartersville. The recruiter told me they’re not hiring in that area. They just run ads to have a pool of applicants to pull from when they need people.

    That’s why I left Georgia. It’s way too competitive over there for any local positions. I was even getting thanks but no thanks emails for garbage truck drivers from WM and Republic Services.

    Florida Rock....never hiring?

    Personally....I think there's better to be had, anyway.

    I’m thinking about relocating again to IA or Minnesota just to go haul fuel for Kwik Trip. Just to get some sort of fuel hauling experience. But I just hate the bitter cold. lol

    Due to the basic nature of that line of work -- fuel hauling jobs come & go all the time.

    It's likely to be cheaper & easier to exhaust all potential possibilities in the greater Vegas area...first.

    Offen petroleum is hiring in Vegas. You might have to go live somewhere you don’t really want to to get a start in the industry if it’s really what you want. You can say you’d rather be homeless than live up here, but there’s tons of work in the hazmat tank world up here. You moved from one bad and competitive market to another already.

    Kwiktrip?

    My earlier comments about Gemini would apply to them, as well.

    MAKE SURE you are OK with fuel hauling with another carrier, first.

    It's likely that you will face stiff competition vying for Kwiktrip fuel jobs, as well...without some good previous fuel hauling experience elsewhere to offer to them.

    Stack the fuel deck in your favor....

    Don’t feel bad. I applied for a bulk DEF driver position and got email saying they were going to go with other candidates.

    Unless you’ve got a couple years hauling gas, you’re wasting your time.
    If i understand correctly, you have driving experience, but not gas specific.
    With the current state of affairs, any slots they have are quickly filled through their drivers speaking with other drivers at the rack.
    That gets them seasoned veteran gas haulers that are already trained and carded.
    If they can hire someone like that, why would they want to train a guy that’s never hauled gas before?
    I imagine it’s remotely possible, but highly unlikely.
    I’m not saying it’s impossible, but i think you need gas experience before trying to get on with them.
