    Is a 3 to 4 hour drive to your terminal OK or should I try for something closer / relocate?

    I went with Crete to start out with. Biggest mistake I made. My trainer just used me for miles. Had to go back out with trainer once they discovered I didn't know what I was doing. I made no money there. I am with USA Truck now and making decent money. They'll keep you running as long as you aren't in the shop. That is my experience only. Check out the Crete forum on here. Good luck.

    I have now talked to CTL and it looks promising. I also have talked to Crete(Waiting for safety department),USA trucking(Didn't get much from the call), and i have a pre-hire with Super Services. I still have allot of company's to call. Any body know much about CTL i can only find a few reviews on it, and is there a review site that has really trustworthy information?

    Letica has a Plant in Valdosta. I started here over a month ago now. Been amazing so far. Miles seem unlimited.. been home every weekend. Medical is 4 bucks a week for my entire family. Paper logs... Phone dispatch. Cant complain at all so far! .41 cents a mile starting to tote mostly private freight that is less then 20k lbs in automatic freightliners with APU's and Inverters . Doesn't get much easier then that! Pretty sure you would need experience to get in tho. Check out Millis Transfer. I started there. A great training company.. good pay for newbies... get a year or so in then find something more specific to you once your options open up.
