    Husband is looking for a OTR company, he has 14yrs of experience. Looking for a company that allows passengers full time, up to 2 small dogs, allows driver's to cook on the truck, inverters or at least will allow driver to put one in. Both of us have passcards and have no issues going to Canada. Also company must have affordable health insurance plans for employee plus spouse. (Right now we're paying over $200 aweek ) would ideally like to run 2500 miles +

    Where do you want to base out of?? And what kind of pay per mile are you looking for?... I know of a company that meets all that except the insurance for spouse is expensive... Unless the spouse can drive as Well then could do team and get really good insurance rate.

    Edit: oh and you will get between 3000 and 4000 miles a week... At least I do.

    now if you had a CDL as well and could both do team driving you would have an endless list of
    companies all competing to get you signed up.

    ...... how about a job like this : took my wife last year to las Vegas , Virginia Beach , Maine and Vermont to see the leaves was feeling a little chilly last winter so took a trip to key west .... run away from the snow in the winter and the heat in the summer ...... useually home 4 to 7 nights per week ....... and still average $1500 per week .... now you can take your wife from day 1 and as much as you want have a choice on where you want to run. ... dogs I admit I am not crazy about but would adapt to the right driver .. hospitalization can be worked out . (I am not sure of the costs right now ) ... take your days off anywhere you want ... Tennessee isn't a bad place to work out of (either end ) Memphis end is a little better . I avoid the ######## as much as possible .... (slow loading or unloading ) it is a w2 % job ... which is why you have a say in where you run ... and sometimes 2000 Miles is a lot better than 4000 miles ..... but probably won't be adding another truck until July or august

    Check out Nussbaum Transportation out of Hudson, IL. I am getting ready to start there. I am leaving West Side Transport after 2 years, they WERE great. However that has been changing.

    Nussbaum currently has a $7500 sign on bonus and a $1150 per week minimum guarantee.

    What is it about West Side that has caused your change in opinion about them. Being based in NE Ohio, I am considering their Midwest Regional position.
