    Middle Georgia is actually a great place to look for a trucking job.

    LOTS of opportunities in the Macon/Warner Robins area.

    It would help out a lot if you told/remind us what your driving experience level is...what endorsements you have (if any), and what type of freight are you interested in (reefer, flatbed, tanker, etc)?

    Are you looking for strictly "home daily", or do you want to be back home on the weekends, or would you prefer to stay out weeks at a time? Regional--or OTR?

    Thanks for the replies, the holidays are over and I'm ready to get back out there. Ok. Here's the details of my experience and other stuff that's important. First off, me and my lovely wife, have separated after 16 years together, and we have 2 boys she's got the oldest, i got my 10 year old, he is old enough to ride at most companies, but that's one requirement. Next i have about 7 years on the road, no accidents, i have no endorsements yet, but willing to get them. I'm good for all season 48 state driving ive been through just about everything a driver can go through and I'm good at it. I want over a grand a week and that shouldn't be too hard right? Thanks for helping, oh yeah id like to be out 2-3 weeks at a time, and a company that has at least a drop yard in atlanta, i am back in atlanta now, should of stayed in middle ga, but we didn't. Thanks

    Yeah, i actually was about to work for crete/schaffer 10 years ago, i kinda wish i would of, but i was so against mega companies, i really want to stay away from companies that have over 250 trucks, but it's not a big deal if they got a good package

    I think Mega is defined at +- 5000 trucks/drivers. I am very happy at Danny Herman Trucking. 500 +- drivers. Family owned and operated. Great lanes and miles. Call a recruiter. Good luck
