CFI transport say no because they are not hiring from South Florida Pam transport I'm not to sure yet about PAM they told me no because I live in south Florida but they are trying to help me out I have to wait till Monday to see if they say yes


Being in Florida, especially south Florida is why you've been denied numerous times not the speech impediment you mentioned in your last thread. How far south are you? Typically many carriers don't hire south of I-10 and far more don't hire south of I-4. When I worked at Sysco in Palmetto (south of St Pete) it seemed there was a steady stream or HEYL trucks delivering so they may be worth a look. I do see they have a terminal in Zephyrhills. I have not heard anything good or bad about that carrier but at this point you need to take whatever you can.

Wow... you know MY stomping grounds!! My (then) boyfriend lived in Ellenton!! (All Manatee County, right?) Did you go to school there? We probably had this chat, and you're 20 years my junior .. I was here in Ohio, anyway by way of New York.. in between!

Cypress sure would take a look see... and yessir, HEYL seems like a great company; they (last I heard) only take experienced drivers. Things change often out here however.

Best forward; I dropped a few possibles, akin to my abilities!

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.

Nope! Grew up in Southern suburbs of St Paul (Inver Grove Heights to be specific) MN. 2015 when I was 24 wife and I had been married 5 months and we made the move. We wanted to stay close to where most family was since we wanted to have kids. Tried unsuccessfully for 4 years to have our first then were open to the idea of moving elsewhere. Considered Denver but too expensive, Wyoming was a no go for obvious reasons so we were ready to pull the trigger on rapid city SD for some bizarre reason. Few days before our wedding mother in law (narcissist) called my wife claiming her step dad is abusive and they wouldn't be at our wedding. They did show up but trying to not to ruin our wedding day neither of us got involved in their issues. Between that, us wanting a fresh start elsewhere, and her mom breaking her back at work we moved down to St Pete over by lakewood high off 54th Ave South and MLK. Got down there and seen that the abuse story was complete BS so I took a grounds keeper job at an apt complex off Gandy and MLK for the rent discount. Worked FT there for about 6 months while also PT at Sysco Palmetto for 4 months before getting FT with Sysco and moving down to Pinellas Point Dr and MLK down by the bay on far south end of St Pete. Atleast my wife's family is just as screwed up as mine. Maybe that's why we're so great together smile.gif her mom either loves, or hates me depending on the day despite telling my wife she's jealous I'm willing to do what needs to be done for my family, something her 3 ex husband's didn't do. I really don't care though, we chose Iowa so we have our own lives and don't feel obligated to visit anyone but still a couple hours from most family. Well dang it her mom, then sister followed us and it's been drama ever since LOL. I don't necessarily care for them and don't care how they feel about me but I always make sure to not bad mouth anybody in front of my kids to influence their feelings and I expect the same in return. Just before we left FL wife threatened to cut contact with mom over talking bad about me in front of our 1 yr old.
