    Hey drivers recent CDL grad here … my whole family has been in trucking for over 40 years so Ofcourse once I spend some time and gain some experience and learn the bulk/ commodities industry of grain hauling I plan and will be an owner operator…


    but for now I’m looking for a grain company I can get experience with hauling hopper bottoms ? Please any suggestions of companies that take new drivers? .. and listen I know it’s a lot of negativity on forums I don’t care about top pay our insults I’m seriously looking for advice on what companies who haul hopper bottom take new drivers ? Thanks and look forward to your feedback …
     
    austinmike and Bud A. Thank this.
