    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for a local, home daily job in the Orlando area. I've been with an OTR flatbed company for 4 months now. I have a clean license with hazmat, tanker, doubles&triples and no auto restriction. I'm planning on sticking it out with this company for at least 6 months (may 6th), but going local is the goal so the sooner the better. Thank yall for any suggestions!

    The hiring company's insurance is the deciding factor. They normally require 3 years OTR so you get to experience all the world has to offer.
    If you find a way around the rule, please let us know. I'm really curious.
    Good luck.

    Yeah I know expecting something after 3-6 months of experience is probably foolishly ambitious, but I know its possible! This OTR life is rough. :)

    Eddiec, you are a legend. Thank you for giving me a place to start! How do you guys find these types of jobs? Looking on places like indeed, I find mostly sneaky OTR jobs that are just advertising in the area.

    Just in case if you don't get hired by an ltl check out beverage companies or food service.

    Good luck.
