    Hi, I recently Graduated from Roadmaster Drivers School here in Jacksonville,FL... I graduated top of my class... Recieved my Class A CDL with a Tanker Endorsement... I am currently looking for a company to go with that won't keep me out for years on end, and that has decent pay... Benefits don't matter to me right now... My Problem is being a recent graduate,I have very little experience with 18 wheelers,and My age... I am only 22 Years old, and most companies around here (Like Florida Rock and Tank Lines) want you to be atleast 25 and have 2 or 3 years OTR... I am good at what I do, and I have a family I have to take care of (Wife and Daughter). I need a good company that will treat me right and get me some decent cash, but get me home once in a while... Any Suggestions???
    I ALMOST went with Werner Enterprises until I noticed that a full-time MCDonald's Employee makes more money than a Werner driver does... (According to several werner drivers)... :biggrin_25513:

    Please help me start on the right path in this great industry known as Truck Driving...

    Thanks!!!

    Steve....

    You might try Allen Freight in Jacksonville on Ellis Road.

    I looked at Bulkmatic.. but didn't submit an application. Their web site says you need 2 years driving experience if you are younger than 25, and 1 year experience if you are OLDer than 25.

    A recent graduate of a CDL school has zero experience...
