    If a recruiter was flipping through EO .. maybe .... But
    Maybe some info about yourself and what type of vehicle you own or drive might help ... also where you live .. maybe fill out an application to all carries might work ...? They don't go knocking door to door like Vacume salesman ...

    just doing some research for now. I'm a few months away from feeling comfortable starting a new business.(after the presidential election) I just feel it's to soon to start pestering recruiters at major carriers. i only asked here just seems more casual. I have a few questions that would be better ask in private chat,you know the ones miles, money and can I be asset to a carrier or fleet owner. since I was asked i'm interested in solo straight trucks. I understand that would put me at a disadvantage to teams. but I ain't mad. if I were a fleet owner I do the same more miles more money! so if there's a recruiter, fleet owner or solo driver that would like to share their experience it would be much appreciated. P.S .ntimevan, tknight, fastman1 love reading your posts where you been and where your going on a daily basis. your carriers are lucky to have you.

    Bama;
    Every once in a while a recruiter lurks in this forum. Every once in a while an ex-recruiter lurks here, and every once in a while a real driver lurks here. You can ask questions but if you feel more comfortable please pm me.
    We (Premium) are lucky to have Fastman running for us and appreciate everything he does. I've known him quite a long time now. Man are we both getting old! :)

    There's plenty of miles, this is the way I choose to run, I no longer need to be the bread winner, I'm winding down, like John said I'm getting old!

    They have my load profile,max miles I'll run and where I run, they offer loads that fit that profile, some we win and some we lose,
