    I'm wanting otr.. Yes I have an apartment. Yes I am married.. Not to sound selfish but this is about me and what I want to do. Not looking to get rich but to just be comfortable instead of barely getting by from bi-weekly check to bi-weekly check. Especially when you are the only income. It's just time for a change and a new adventure.. I just can't afford anymore bills which is why I am looking at company paid training..

    Good for you; sometimes we have to take time for ourselves and ignore others opinions. OK, so get started on this new career; trucking is a great career!

    I don't if it was brought up, but have you looked into Millis Transfer? Being in Ohio, they have cdl training and have a terminal in Trenton. I am headed there once I get to Cincinnati in the spring. Check into them. I believe it is one of the better starter companies out there, in my humble opinion.

    you are going to have to continue your research, find the company that works best for you, I have not read this entire thread so I am certain you might have already seen the same answer a few times.
    But.... you should look into who can get you home, who has trainers that actually train students, not just use them for a log book? how they pay (some don't do per diem)? what size pet can you have? where does the company run? What is their equipment like? for your sake, I hope you have received some pretty good responses, not just total sarcasm.
