Hey everyone new here. I’m currently in CDL school and really want to do flatbed. Looking for companies that hire in the ND/MN area. Going into Canada is actually a bonus for me for personal reasons, but obviously not a requirement. I was very interested in TMC until I heard about people getting booted from orientation for long hair. My fiancé would kill me if I cut it haha. No issue putting it up or putting it under a beanie or something but also on principle don’t like the idea of a company forcing someone to cut it when I have no issues “hiding” it per se. most of the companies I see referred a lot don’t seem to have much up here besides I know Melton does and they seem like a good company. Any other options out there I’d love to hear about thank you for your time.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

EW Wylie is in Fargo, Halvor Lines is in Superior Wisconsin right across the bay from Duluth Minnesota. There’s several others but I’m not sure what the experience requirements might be.

Based on my limited experience I can tell that Roehl doesn't care about hair or beard length.

I will give Halvor a call. Wylie says they require 6 months experience. Not sure if they’re flexible at all or if it’s a hardline stance from their insurance. Worth a call I suppose. Thank you

Do you work there? I’ve heard them come up. Heard mixed things but I tend to take complaints with a grain of salt. Curious if you do work there how your experience has been. Thanks man.

I had longer hair and the long beard everywhere I've worked, including Roehl. Never had any problems.

I worked for Halvor right out of school. You'll be training with an experienced OTR driver for I think 5 weeks now,then 3 days with a local flat bed person Great company to work for Their main terminal is in Superior,WI,and they also have terminals in Rosemont,MN,Inver Grove Heights,MN,South Bend,IN,and Des Moines or Altoona,IA Non emergency repairs and maintenance will be done in Superior or Rosemont

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
