    Would appreciate thoughts on which carrier would be the best choice for someone returning to trucking. I have an open mind and realistic (I think) expectations for my first year. I would like to get 2500 - 3000 miles per week ideally, really targeting 10,000 per month. I'm good with staying out 3 weeks to do that, but want some home time after being on the road for 21 days straight.

    Could WEL meet my goal? I understand they would expect you to be with a trainer for 4-5 weeks and I'm OK with that, my real concern is the miles once I am solo.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello,

    I think a goal of 10,000 mile per month is realistic. Many of our OTR drivers are averaging 2500 miles per week. For recent graduates with 0-3 months of OTR experience, we do require 4 1/2 weeks of training. We do pay $400 per week during your training period. After training we will pay 35 cents per mile for your first 3 months of solo, then 38 cents per mile for 9 more months. After that you can expect to see 43.5 cents per mile or higher.

    Thank you for your interest and please get back in touch with me if I can answer any other questions or to assist you with an employment application.

    Hi,

    I have a few questions. I went to school at Caldwell Community College back in 2009 its a 320 hour CDL program. I drove for Tyson Foods for 3 months and unfortunately my family was not ready for me to be gone as much as i was. Now 5 years later my son is graduating school and I am ready to go back to being a professional driver.

    I live in lakeland Fl and i would like to know if I would qualify for a refresher / student position with your company. If need be I could go to our local community for a refresher if that would improve my chances with your company.

    I have keep my Med card current and my DL is clean no tickets or accidents.

    What are the limitations on size or weight for the pet policy?

    I don't. Believe there is a size limitation or anything. As long as you can get them in and out of the trucks.
