    It's just like anything else. You can find a million people who love it but you can also find a million people who hate. Opinions can guide you but only experience can show you.

    My grandfather died in 96 and my uncle is on the fence. He does and dosen't want me to drive. I also take in to consideration that he hops from place to place alot.

    Well, you can do much better in trucking than delivering pizzas. It's easy to make $55K - $60K as a new driver in trucking, plus have a full benefits package.
    In South Florida, try :
    Florida Beauty Express
    Abilene Motor Express
    Covenant - teams with hazmat endorsement do well.
    Vero Logistics
    Apply to all of them and ignore what the websites have about experience. Abilene hired a guy that hasn't driven in 20 years.

    That's correct, many companies are bending their own hiring rules these days.
    Submit online applications, then follow with a phone call.

    What have you got to loose? If you try it and hate it after 6 months, at least you tried and would know its not for you. If you love it, then stick with it.
