    You keep running towards bottom feeders, you have since you began posting here. By far, the best option on your current list is May. If you used the search tab you'd find ample info on USX...not much of it good.

    Can't seem to find many companies that hire students and have good equipment. Seems to be one or the other or they don't hire from my area

    Screw equipment. These bottom feeders that hire nothing but students age trucks quickly. A year old truck driven by students pushed through a "training" phase with a trainer with three months experience wear a truck down to junk in no time. Like I said, on your current list, May is by far...far...your best choice.

    Good luck. Relax and take your time, there's no bonus points for speed.
