I've not seen a list like this yet and with so many companies now training with automatics (or more technically correct AutoShift) we should probably start one. If your company does, please add them.

West Side Transport will now hire inexperienced drivers with an automatic restriction.

This makes me happy (thanks Susan!) since I have zero experience with a manual! However, I do think it would be incredibly beneficial to know how to drive a stick - thoughts? =)

I don't think Wilson Logistics (Jim Palmer/ Wil-Trans) will hire with auto restriction. But please don't quote me on that. Check with a recruiter.


Darrel Wilson bought his first tractor in 1980 at age 20, but, being too young to meet OTR age requirements, he leased the truck out and hired a driver.

Through growth and acquisition, Wil-Trans now employs over 200 drivers, and has a long-standing partnership with Prime, Inc. to haul their refrigerated freight. The family of businesses also includes Jim Palmer Trucking and O & S Trucking.

Me personally, I wouldn't want a manual transmission restriction, but honestly it just doesn't matter anymore because you'll be hard pressed to find a company that doesn't have at least a few AutoShift transmissions.

JoAnne, believe it or not,
