Any Tanker companies hire straight out of school?

Eagle transport hires straight out of tri county technical college cdl school

Been looking around the interwebs trying to find some tanker companies and/or divisions that hire straight out of CDL school. At this point (before even getting my CDL... lol) I THINK I want to be a tanker driver. Pay looks decent, highly specialized skillset, would be delivering to some interesting places, and so on.

As far as I can tell pretty much no one hires tanker drivers straight out of school. I've looked at Quality Distribution Inc., Superior Carriers, Ruan, Goodman Tank Lines, few others I can't think of.

I know Schneider has a tanker division, I haven't called them just yet, but it seems like they might possibly put new hires into tanker division.

Are there any other companies anyone can think of or has personal experience with regarding tanker driving for a new graduate?

Like Brett and many others say, stick out the first year and more opportunities open up. Seems like all the tanker companies want 1 year experience, some even say 6 months. But if I can start out tanker I think that would be good for me.
