    I just finished CDL school and got my CDL yesterday.
    I'm trying to get a local job but I can't find any jobs that hire recent grads except for Swift for a Wal Mart account. The recruiter said it's 2800 to 3000 miles a week and I'm home every day. I don't know how much I can believe that. So does anyone have any tips or know of companies in the Mid Missouri area that hires recent grads? I know it's a long shot and I might have to go OTR for a while but I'm hopeful for a local position.

    Here's one that lets drivers put their name on a waiting list, if nothing is currently available.
    It's all local Class-A work and hires new cdl school grads.

    Honestly there’s nothing wrong with Swift in this case if the recruiter is being truthful. You obviously won’t need to go through their CDL school and a dedicated Walmart account should be about as easy as it gets. It sounds like a decent way to get some experience and open up your options in the future.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    YRC - Columbia, MO
    YRC sometimes will a new cdl school grad and will work the dock and some driving for awhile.
    Later can go to full time driver.
    Usually require 12 mos. driving experience, but some ads say drivers with no experience can start out "dock to driver."
