Looking To Start A Career!

I can understand where you are coming from, I'm not looking for negativity so let me apologize if I misled anyone,I'm just looking for the best possible option for me. So you're right I do need to express my needs and concerns,that is my fault that I didn't previously.

I guess I'm just looking for a good scenario to fit my lifestyle, as we all are, I'm married and have 3 children so my major concern is income and home time, I would prefer to be home at least every other weekend, if not every weekend, and I just need to make a living to provide, not looking to get rich just looking to be stable. Any companies that may come to mind,I'm willing to take a look at and talk t, and I realize that its ultimately what company will suit me best. I know just starting out is going to be harder to get what I'm looking for and just want to make an informed decision. Thanks for the feedback,I do appreciate it!

Hi, Jdad. I know it's a big decision and choosing a company is something you want to be certain about. However, suggesting a specific company over others in general is not what this site is all about, unless you have a specific need that only certain companies can provide. For example, if you are looking to drive flatbed, members may steer you toward companies with flatbed divisions. Suggesting you avoid any companies is a big no-no. Except - as stated above - you are looking for specifics that some companies cant provide. This is an anti-negativity zone. It's what makes this site great!

If you have more-specific questions other members will be better able to provide you with the information you need. Simply saying, "this company is better than that one" is very misleading and untrue. So...

Try and ask about some specifics. We are always happy to help.

You know that absolutely makes sense! Never thought of it that way man! If I may ask, is their a company you would suggest or one you may discourage? Thanks for the input, I appreciate it!

When I first started looking into training companies I also wanted one close to home. Been out for 2 months now and I see it doesn't even matter if it's across the the whole country. When you first make the jump seems like a sense of security to be closer to home. After a one week orientation you just left Kansas man. Coast to coast runs north south east west I truly don't even care where I am anymore. The truck is your home. Good luck it really does not matter where you start we all end up on the road.
