    Hello, I’m looking for the best company to work for as a husband/wife team. We live in Henderson, NV. I currently have 1 year experience and my wife has 6 months experience. We only have the tanker endorsement but are going to get double/triples and hazmat soon.

    thanks.

    The best pay is probably with Estes Express, but you will need doubles/triples/hazmat.
    Not sure which trucks they're using there, but probably Kenworths. They do hire some drivers with under 12 mos. experience. Best advice is you and wife apply in person.
    Estes Express Lines 2303 Losee Rd North Las Vegas, NV ...

    They can do real well running teams with a line haul outfit once they get a good dedicated route such as Old Dominion or Estes Express.
    $125K - $165K per year for each driver.

    I don't know if FFE hires teams in Las Vegas/Henderson or not.
    @TravR1 will let you know.
    Lots of manual labor to make the big bucks.
