    Congrats Aligator, it looks like you did extremely well for a first year!

    Just out of curiosity, did that company recruit you right out of school (as my local college says companies do there) or did you research them first and then approach them about the job?

    Crete! Well, Hunt, the flatbed division. I've got other offers that I've seriously considered, but Definitely leaning toward Crete. I'm somewhat disappointed that I never heard from Roehl. Ironically, Roehl is actively recruiting two of my classmates to work OTR for Roehl. You know, the classmates who aren't interested at all in OTR work? Figures. If I didn't want OTR, I guess Roehl would offer me OTR work? :) Oh well, Crete seems like a good company, so will give them a shot. -Dave

    Thanks for the tips and insight Dave, I appreciate your taking the time!

    I'm quite aware of some of the trade offs, I'm sure there will be others, like in most professions. Just finding a first employer who's not in the slimeball business looks like quite a challenge LOL.

    I forgot to tell you!..........their ad said they required two years experience, but when I called he said that he could hire me and in fact had just hired two inexperienced guys. So I went and got my CDL and called him back several weeks later............
