    Where is your location?
    Most tanker companies will hire you, then train you for tankers.

    Some tanker companies hire brand new CDL holder but not all that many. Most tanker companies will hire you with no tanker experience if you have 1 year of CDL experience. You can learn to drive the tanker trailer, but you CANNOT drive carelessly at all. If you try that it will rollover.

    @Kimia2005 --

    The Forum can make better suggestions and better help out--if we knew what city/state is closest to you.

    Also--what CDL endorsements (if any) do you already have?

    Linde/Praxair
    Western International Gas
    Trimac
    Air Products

    These are just a hand full of companies that will hire you with no experience.

    You can haul food grade, drive a concrete mixer, run a water truck or a slurry spreader for a construction company, pull a pneumatic, or run a vacuum truck.

    It's a lot of pneumatic tanker company in my area most want 2 years experience as for driving concrete trucks the guy that runs a company in my town always firing his driver's for getting their truck stuck so I rather avoid working for him

    I can’t believe that Airgas, Praxair and Air Products are hiring with no experience??? They must be hard up?
