With you being so close to the Schneider yard, I would consider trying them out. I got my start there and it's not as bad as some people make it out to be. Yes I was otr and was gone 3 to 4 weeks at a time and it is hard at first, but you take your knocks and get in a year or two of experience and many more doors will open up for you such as local, regional etc. Putting in some time to gain experience will help a lot to get on with the smaller companies or a better paying gig. Schneider offers 14 on 7 off, but slip seating trucks is not really my thing for otr, local maybe, not otr where you have to sleep in someone elses filth lol. There are options out there, you just have to gain trucking experience first. Hope that helps.
