    Me and my wife have sold our food truck where we have been at for the last 10 years. We will be moving to Nevada in 30 days. We have decided to get our CDL.

    We want to work team. We are currently looking at schneider they offered .60CPM as team on a dedicated account.

    Can anyone suggest a better paying company? The city we are moving to is Las Vegas. We also have a cat. We don't mind paying our way through school or getting sent to a school provided by the company.

    Thank you in advance for all your help.

    There is a reasonable chance you will be expected to train with different trainers in different trucks before you can get back into your team truck. I would not count on being able to have the cat with you during training, especially if you get very lucky and both of you can train in the same truck with the same trainer at the same time. There is just BARELY enough room for 2 adults in one truck, let alone another person and a pet. It's the trainer's truck and students are just guests. Bringing the cat into the team truck should be OK if the company says so.

    Thank for the quick reply we have thought about our cat and have made arrangements for him to join us after we are in our own team truck. We are also aware we might not train together and are comfortable splitting up for training if the right company came along.

    Old Dominion Freight Lines is considered by many as the top team company. $100k per year per driver is common at ODFL. That job is terminal to terminal and drop and hook. I can't remember if they allows pets.

    I would check out FedEx. You may have to ask the Las Vegas FedEx terminal which subcontractors you should apply to to move their freight.

    @tscottme posted about Old Dominion Freight Line. That's an excellent choice and there's a terminal in Las Vegas.
    Old Dominion hires from approved cdl schools.
    This would be my #1 choice if you can arrange it.
    My guess is, Old Dominion probably hires from RTDS. Not uncommon for husband/wife teams to make $125G per year for each driver in the team. @blairandgretchen worked there as husband/wife team.
