    I’m a recent CDL grad. Went to an established community college program and got hazmat, doubles/triples, and tanker endorsements, and I have a TWIC card. I have a M-F job, and I’m seeking an o/o who will let me drive their truck on weekend runs. No payment to me necessary - I only need the experience. My safety record is perfect: no speeding tickets in the last 20 years, and no DUI or accidents ever. I’m 47, and I want a career change, but I don’t want to work for a sweatshop. Any feedback is appreciated.

    I admire your attitude.

    However, insurance may kill your noble gesture.

    Best chance in my opinion is to look for a weekend relief position or part time with only weekend availability. Most companies tho wont recognize experience unless regional. Blair is right, no one can afford to insure you.

    Plenty of companies that aren't sweatshops hire new cdl school grads.
    Charlotte is an excellent location.
    If you wait too long, you'll have to pay for a refresher course.
