Company Paid CDL training

I'm trying to get a dedicated route because I have two children. I can work it out to go to school and then get some experience but I need to get on a route that can give me regular hometime. Some companies offer dedicated routes to people with three to six months experience so if I get that much experience, that's what I want to do.

Company Paid CDL training

If we get our CDL license, do we need the certificate to get hired on by another company?

Company Paid CDL training

Me and my husband are wanting to obtain our CDLS and run a team route. We have limited finances so we are thinking about a company that will train us. We have been turned down a few time so we are now looking into driver solutions for Pam transportation. We want to get into a dedicated route asap but pam says we won't be considered for one for at least 7 months. My question is if we go through the training, and decide to go with a company that will offer us a dedicated route before our contract is up, will pam be able to hold onto our CDL certificate?

Anyone heard of Lobos Interstate Services?

Lobos Interstate services? They have ads on Craigslist saying if you sign a three month employment contract with them, they will pay for your CDL training. But I can't find out where they do the training or anything about the program.

Questions about trucking

My name is Whitney and I am 28 years old. Me and my husband have been considering getting our CDL's and doing a team route for about a year now. I have 2 children from a previous marriage but I only have them half of the time. We are very close to them so family and home time is very important. With that being said, my husband and I just found out that we are getting laid off here in a couple of weeks. So we are thinking this might be the perfect time to make this decision. This is his second time being laid off through a warehouse position. We want a more stable life for the kids and we want to be able to give them the start at life that our parents couldn't give us. We have thought about trying to get a degree in something but that takes 2 to 4 years before a person starts seeing any paychecks and by that time your buried in debt. I have a son (he will be 9 next month) and a daughter (she is 7). We are currently renting a two bedroom (kids are sharing a bedroom) apartment (cheapest rent in town) and barely get by when we got 40 hrs per week. The kids are getting older and know more about their bodies and stuff then I did at 12. So I know we have to get into a three bedroom soon especially since the the kids dad is a jerk and is just waiting for a reason to try to take me back to court to get the kids. My husband and I have been doing extensive research on several companies but I hear people saying that companies will say they can get you home on weekends or a couple days a week but then when they get you out OTR, they change their mind. Is this true, can they do that? My dad was with marten and fleet master and both companies did that to him. This is something that I would like to do because of the money but also because I love to travel and see new places. I also love my kids and don't want to give up all my time with them. Any advice would helpful. Thanks!
