    I’m an Army Veteran wheel mechanic, I was a pipefitter after Army. I’m looking to start a career driving with a good company. Need good insurance, wife has cancer. I like driving, it’s good for me. I live in NW Arkansas and I need my CDL and a good company to start with.

    Too bad you’re not in the Central part of the state. A lot of good companies and pretty much any kind of driving you want to do.

    I imagine Tyson is up your way, but no idea how they are to drive for.

    Old Dominion Freight Line in Ft. Smith hires new cdl school grads from approved schools.
    Some terminals also have a dock to driver program to help acquire a cdl. This program you're being paid while you learn.

    The state of Arkansas might pay for cdl school, free to you.
    If interested, check the WIOA Program-Arkansas.
