Trucking company that hires for tanker directly out of CDL school?

Well i considered Swift. However, I've heard that maverick is such an outstanding company, I don't really want to do flatbed for anyone else. If I must drive something other than flatbed, id rather deal with the challenges of a tanker.

Are there any other flatbed companies you've looked into?

Trucking company that hires for tanker directly out of CDL school?

Thank you for putting it out there. The ruling doesn't go so far as to ban the materials use to hold it. It is the fact of helping to transport alcohol which in my religion is forbidden to consume, due to the things it causes, and the harms upon the body. I don't look down upon or think lesser about anyone who consumes alcohol, nor do I refute scientific evidence that it is in small doses beneficial, but when one is looking to follow his religion "to the tee," one simply says " I hear and I obey." A strange concept to a lot of people lol. So anyway the exact quote from our books that state this is what was said by our Prophet when asked about who among the people who use alcohol would be in sin. His response was:

"the one who squeezes (the grapes etc), the one for whom it is squeezed, the one who drinks it, the one who carries it, the one to whom it is carried, the one who pours it, the one who sells it and consumes its price, the one who buys it and the one for whom it is bought.”

So flatbed is perfectly fine, since I am not carrying the actual substance itself.

Lastly, I don't plan to drive for another company for 4 months and then go to maverick.... I think what I am saying is that, the wait is just too long due to my financial need, so I'm probably just going to drive tanker instead of going with Maverick.

I guess I am just reading too many reviews from disgruntled truckers. So Schneider and prime. Any others?

Trucking company that hires for tanker directly out of CDL school?

Hello,

I live in Georgia, and have been accepted by Maverick for their CDL school, but its like a 4 month wait list! So in the meantime, I want to try and get in to a company that will allow tanker driving directly out of their training school. I know Prime does, and have applied with them. But I am wondering if there is a smaller, more driver-focused, company that does the same thing? I KNOW about the difficulty in driving tankers, but my religious beliefs prevent me from doing dry van, due to hauling things like beverage alcohol(medical grade is ok).So its flatbed or tanker for me. I don't think I can wait 4 months for maverick, so if anyone can help me with this, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

I have offers from Prime, KLLM, and PAM Transport. Please Help :)

As the subject states.

I do NOT have my CDL and their offers are for me to attend their driving school free of charge so long as I work for them for one year, then I will owe nothing. I am a 32 year old male who lives with his parents, and I desperately need to be able to stand on my own two feet and feel like a man again. Trucking will both get me out of my parent's house, and give me sustainable income. I have no family obligations girlfriends or anything of the sort. I am young , in shape, strong, and prefer solitude. Hence trucking.

I have offers from all 3 companies, but want to choose the most reputable one so that I don't get shafted and stuck with a huge school bill because they decided to terminate me at 11 months.

You guys are the experts, please advise! And thank you!
