    Hello folks, looking for some info, what companies are paying high dollar income without a hazmat? I have 20+ years no accidents/tickets, live in Southern Alabama, and keep looking but seems most companies are stuck around 65k-75k gross per year. OTR is good, regional ok, really open at this point. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Get your hazmat endorsement and then apply at Walmart.

    Are you near Montgomery or Mobile?
    It's going to be hard to make that without hazmat endorsement.

    Estes Express Lines in Albany, GA.
    Line haul pays about what you're wanting.
    No, that won't work; must live within 75 miles of Albany, GA terminal.

    You are right, hazmat endorsement is a hassle. But if you desire to get close to $100K you are going to need it.

    That's true BM 58, been thinking about getting it back. Walmart pays good and has good bennies, just seems like they are a little extreme on their rules. Their truck so I get it, but some stuff I read I just shake my head at....

    I’ve got several close friends that have drove for them for years. You go in and put up with their 5 days of micromanage. Then smile when you see your paycheck. I’d be driving there myself but work for a private fleet that suits my needs. Some LTL jobs will get you close to that figure but will still need the hazmat anyway.
