I’m pretty sure this was discussed, but not sure in this area. Miami Fl
I’m located in Miami Florida and looking to get experience as a CDL driver, I’ve had my CDL for two years now but have not been driving so I guess I’m considered a new grad I’m assuming. I pretty much just applied for my CDL on my own because I had the time and wanted to secure the license early, so I passed the course. I have my CDL A automatic, hazmat,twic and tanker endorsement. I joined Werner onboarding at that time and I guess I pass because they wanted to give me a truck, but I was not prepared to do that at that time I thought I was just getting driving experience and later I could have joined, but that was not the case. They wanted me to drive right there and then which I was definitely not prepared to be on the road at that moment.
I’m looking to team up with a mega carrier that’s reasonably paying, either on the flatbed or tanker division hiring Cdls in miami fl for newbies to get some years of experience to transition to something better with better home time.
I’ve seen numerous CDL jobs, but they all require one year or two year of driving, which I don’t have. I’m looking to park somewhere for about a year or so to get into a better gig. But at the same time a company that’s paying good for now reason being I have a family of five to support I’ve already pre paid my bills 2 to 3 months in advance to accommodate the pay transition of a starter company.
below is what I came up with, if I’m missing please advise thanks again.

I’m Looking for a Mega Carrier Hiring in Miami Fl New Cdl
Prime goes back and forth on whether they hire south of I-4 but I think they're a good a starter company. I never sat for long.
I can't speak to flatbed as I did reefer, but I would talk to flatbed guys in the terminal and they never seemed doom and gloom or anything. I noticed several of them were there to get flatbed experience before going hotshot, but that's neither here nor there.
New CDL holders welcome, & home daily:
Sysco -- Food delivery
Get 2 years CDL experience elsewhere -- THEN you can start looking for hazmat tanker work.
Also -- BE SURE to avoid any job or account that has you delivering to any of the "dollar" stores: Dollar General, Family Dollar, etc.
Those jobs are TERRIBLE--but especially for drivers with little or no experience.
Thanks for taking the time.
