Imagine, another newb. with questions

Thanks Brett. Helps a bit knowing that I'll just have to accept a big company like Schneider

(tanker division I hope) to get started. Not so much worried about what I haul or where it

goes. Just looking for different opinions on companies that might have been overlooked.

Thanks again

Imagine, another newb. with questions

Been reading this site for days. Then joined & read some more. Figured time to say hello to

all the nice folks on here. So... HOWDY Y'ALL. I live between dayton & cincinnati ohio. Currently

in a private school should complete Sept. 22 & test for my plastic the 26th (weekend classes).

I been doing pretty good in maneuvers on track & been out cruising 1 time for about 1 & 1/2 hours.

Don't know which hurt more that day my left leg from clutching so much or, my butt from clenching

so much. So, I have my temps with all endorsements & have my background check for hazmat. Need

to look into TWIC. Planning to apply for a passport next week just in case.

Now I read people asking about opinions on specific companies. I have taken note of the ones

I do know & may be interested. My question is for the seasoned vets here that have experiences

with the not so heavily advertised companies that I might should look into ? I don't care what I

haul (as long as I can avoid NE of Pennsylvania) heck I'd be more willing to drive in the middle

east than the N.E. If I can see a doctor once every 3 months to get my scripts refilled that's

all I need off. I can sacrifice for a year or two if need be NO problem. But, I don't like to

jump around. I like stability. Mostly I like money. Now that I read back over this looong post

Think I can sum up: who are the stable companies, hauling hazmat, in the middle east with good

pay ?? Oh, that hire newbs. Who are the not so well known companies that are well worth checking

out ?

I'll stop here before I confuse &/or overload everyone. If anyone can understand my point

your help/guidance will be VERY appreciated.

Thanks a bunch, BUG
