Welcome to the forum. You shouldn't have too much trouble getting inot a regional job, or a job that has you out for 14 days. Much of the industry has begun gearing their jobs toward this anyway to help improve driver retention.

SNI is going to raise pay rates, maybe a good idea over maverick. unless you want the flatbed time.

There is a new sticky over in the new driver area about starting out. Deals with family issues.

Before you consider flatbed, think long and hard about what you are getting into. Be prepared to work in the weather elements, be prepared to wrestle with dirty/heavy tarps. It's not for me, but then again, I can barely lift one of those tarps, much less wrestle one open in freezing weather. Might be something you like though, and I do think companies pay for tarping loads and such.

Otherwise, I would have to look toward Schneider if I was just starting out.
