Planning to move to Orlando, FL around August-September this year. The problem is, I have no idea what type of job I want or what company to go with. I’ve been driving OTR for the past 2 1/2 years with a great company that @Chinatown recommended. I would stay OTR but I’d like to actually use the overpriced apartment I’m going to be paying for with my fiancé. I have tanker/hazmat endorsements and a clean record. Would like to be home nightly. Maybe foodservice with Sysco or Mclane? I’ve just heard it’s hard on your body but great money….I’m only 26 but do I want that?
I would greatly appreciate any inside info on any local companies or advice. Thank you!

If you have the "creds", I'd go straight to Publix. Every food store is BEGGING for drivers( remember, the Safeway wagon being pulled by the CR England truck?) There is a Publix DC in Orlando, and a great company. Heck, screw the truck driving, dock workers have it made. Publix, and have a decent life with the best job security around, people may not buy new RVs, but boy howdy, they have to eat and Publix is one of the best.
Since you already have hazmat & tanker endorsements.....if you are also well versed with CDL world manual transmissions, then this opportunity could be a good one for you (and yes, it's home daily):
Job Description - CDL Class A Driver Hazmat (43554) (taleo.net)
It's MUCH EASIER WORK than food service, or local P&D--but similar money.
Think about it.
Sysco is constanlty hiring and firing - a ton of turnover - I had heard personal stories from several friends, and some family that this is NOT a great place to work. I could be wrong, and if youre looking for a job - by all means, give it a shot.
