National carriers in texas?

I was planning to go to work for a national company but my soon to be wife said location they wanted to send me up north was not reasonable so she wants me to find a company based out of Texas or a nearby by state. Are there many national companies I know of FFE and that's all I know. My biggest problem I can only lift 50lbs I heard FFE requires you to unload your rig if there was a forklift or pallet jack I could do that however if they have me moving individual boxes repetitively may pose an issue with an old injury. Another company based in or near Texas.

Schneider national

I guess the only reservations I have left are 3 I am unskilled at backing a tractor-trailer not getting it down fast enough and being sent home, other would be I hear that you will be flown in to training, and eventually flown away from your rig to home after 3-6 weeks out and on your return you may be going to another rig, third being do they have ac and heat in the sleeper. anyone comments on these.

Schneider national

Okay I have a CDL received it from a company years ago had a horrible trainer got out ended up costing me money to get out now I want back in been thinking more and more I want this over the past 6 months I really want to be an OTR driver for numerous reasons. I have nothing at home to tie me down to it so months out on road would be good I have no real experience driving a tractor-trailer in the form of backing or mountain driving and from Texas so no snow driving experience. I talked to a company named Schneider national they have a refresher program to train inexperienced drivers for 18 days OTR but the cost would be 1,200 my concern it's in Greenbay I live in Texas first thing I think beside cost is that snow country anyone ever been through there program.
