    I've got about 3 years OTR experience hauling reefer. No tickets or reportable accidents (a few scrapes of trailers backing). Have all endorsements, and TWIC card. Wanting a job where I can be home 2-3 times a week, PLUS weekends (any 2 consecutive days off), no hard labor (51 years old & ain't gonna strain in the Texas heat), without losing any money ($63k last year, on pace for $66k this year). Live near I-20 / Tyler, Texas area. Any suggestions? @Chinatown Anyone else?

    I live in your area, can't speak to the actual money, but I know that JBS is hiring for local home every night and home weekly drivers all over this area right now. Just saw an ad in the local newspaper this morning.

    Home 3 days a week,
    Weekends off,
    65 grand a year,
    And no physical labor involved,

    Let me know when you find this job.
    Cause I haven't, not that I've been looking to hard.
    I'm in Jefferson, tx.
    Right up the road.
     
    Trucking in Tennessee Thanks this.

    Ruan does that dedicated stuff out of
    The target DC in Tyler.
    I doubt your gonna be able to
    Push somebody who's already
    There off of the weekends though.

    Lots of low paying #### jobs where we live.
    That's why I work out of dallas.
     
    txtodd Thanks this.

    Tankers will have all that your looking for,
    The money your making now is on the low end in the tanker world
