    I am a long time stalker of this forum and I’m ready to take the jump into a career in the trucking business. I am looking for a company that doesn’t have contracts and will train me to get my CDL A license. I am in Texas and if there are any in Texas that would be great. I am really looking for a foot into the industry.

    R. E. West doesn't have a contract.
    This company does hire Texas drivers that already have a cdl, but not sure they hire students from Texas.

    Dot Transportation has a "warehouse to driver" program where you must work in the warehouse for a few months, then they pay for cdl school and you become a driver for DOT.

    Jul 19, 2019 · At Dot, we found that for some people who have never been a truck driver before, entering the industry can be intimidating. So, we created the Warehouse to Driver Program —a gradual transition program that allows employees to get used to Dot and the way we function in the warehouse before attending driving school and then, ultimately, transitioning into a Dot driver role with Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI).

    Nothing wrong with a contract. This provides training and a job. Millions of unemployed would love to have a contract to work these days.
    Trucking companies want students to have some skin in the game. They were getting ripped off with drivers completing their cdl schools, then quitting to go somewhere else and laughing on their way out the door.
    I'd sign one in a heartbeat to work for a company like FFE.

    Driver training is our specialty. It’s the reason that FFE continues to dominate the industry as the place for new CDL-A holders to call home. The Student Driver Academy is an 18 day accelerated program that provides quality classroom behind-the-wheel training
