Starting with a Flat Bed Company at 55-Years-Old

Old School you're EXACTLY the guy I was hoping would respond to my post! Thank-you! I have a couple cats but otherwise it's just me. I can do the OTR thing for a year to get the experience. I'll proceed with them. Thanks for the detailed response!

I Think It's Time to Move On

Holy crap, how did you guys get hired for Fedex?! I heard it was very hard. Sounds like there are lots of opportunities once you get on. Do you guys work FOR Fedex or a contractor for them? I really would like to get on with a contractor FOR Fedex in Las Vegas so I can be near my elderly parents. I'm 55 and can't do hard physical labor the way I used to, so dock work is out.

Starting with a Flat Bed Company at 55-Years-Old

This website has been a Godsend for me and I learned ALOT from you all. I paid my own way thru a truck driving school here in Fresno recently and now have my California Class A CDL with all the available endorsements except buses. TWIC card, too, just in case. I need to be closer to my elderly parents in Las Vegas, though, so I'm looking for local or regional jobs there. But without experience it's been a lot harder than I thought it would be to find a job. I found a company in Vegas who wants to interview me - YES! But they're a flat bed company. Uh-oh. I hear that's a young man's job. I'm healthy and have always been athletic (save occasionally throwing out my lower back if I bend and twist wrong.) I know that, in the end, only I can answer this question, but I still would like to hear what you flat bed guys think because you guys know what's involved; is this a job a 55-year-old guy could physically handle? Thanks!
