I'm thinking of starting with Conway. Anyone have recent Info? I've also looked into Schneider and U.S. xpress. It's very hard to figure out who to start with? Thanks in Advance.

AJ. poor old Brett is kind of like a one legged man in a foot race - he does absolutely all he can to keep up with everything on this website all while constantly trying to keep it fresh and easy to navigate. It's a monstrosity to manage it all by oneself. I know he is in the process of updating some of the company information on here, but it is a daunting task to get everything for every company confirmed and ready to go while it is constantly changing all the time.

You could do very well at any of the companies you mentioned - the main thing is that you find what seems to fit you the best. Don't get all hung up about if they are good companies or bad. Those are all good solid operations with a long list of very successful drivers.

Thanks for your reply. This web site is AWESOME!!!!!! No slight on Brett at all. I think the most common theam I'm finding in all this info is that most of the first year experence is up to me. If I have a good attitude and except that curtain things may suck. I think I'll be ok. I train people in my currant job and I don't really want them in my car anymore then they want to be in my car. I understand I will be the guest in another persons truck. I also understand I am the one who needs the training not the trainer. I plan to try and do everything so all the trainer has to do is give me tips and teach me the easy way to do things. I'm a solo guy perfect for trucking, I can't wait to be on my own. As for the companies, I've read over and over that most new driver companies are about the same. I guess I can't go wrong.
