    As a proud New Jerseyan, I endorse this comment.

    And to the OP, there are home-daily jobs out there. UPS in Parsippany is currently hiring temporary seasonal tractor trailer drivers, and pretty much all the LTL companies have facilities in Morris County - XPO is in Ledgewood, Estes and ABF in Pine Brook, FedEx Freight in Rockaway, among others. And if you travel a little further east, there's plenty more opportunities around Secaucus/Newark/Carlstadt.

    Yeah, I’m not sure why that is. I started it as a new thread for interest of North Jersey jobs for new drivers.

    I appreciate those options, but are those companies hiring brand new drivers. Most companies I have called said I am either out of their hiring area or are not hiring new drivers at this time.

    Some do, if your CDL school is on their list of approved training programs. That's how I got started. Have you asked your school for job placement help, or what companies hire their graduates?
