    Thank you. I plan on staying with Henderson. They seem to really be a solid outfit. I don't need perfect, I need good and from everything I've seen they are very good.

    I was with Henderson thru 2014 and was a lease operators and a trainer, I did well there but I left and went back to local driving in vegas right before they got on with the prime advance fleet. The guys I knew that were company drivers told me they weren't getting many miles after that and the lease ops seemed to be doing well. They have the academy in caseyville just east of St louis and they cover you to get there and while you're in school. When you get with a trainer you will bounce all over for up to 2 months and get cut loose when they're confident you can handle it on your own. They always treated me decent back then, and my wife is getting her cdl right now in vegas and we are going back to Henderson pretty shortly so I can train her and we will run team.
     
    DrivingLikeMad Thanks this.

    Did you end up going with them Mad? There on my short list as well. I live in the NE, so not sure if they run this far up, or not? Wil-Trans is also on my short list as well. Prime, Inc's little brother :D

    Also says on Henderson's site 'Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance options for you and your family'. I wonder if that is something that you get right away, or it's after a certain amount of days first?

    I can live with waiting a month or more for the medical and not sweat that. But mention driver facing cameras, or anything about having to do the dreaded 'duck walking under a rope' exercise in a company physical such as Schneider or US Express, and I'm saying :hello2::hello2:
