    ImI currently working for Werner on their Dollar General account. The pay is good but I'm gone too many nights, plus they've run out my week too far from home a few times and I've had to reset on the road and get right back to work.

    I live in the Waco area and am looking for a local gig that pays well. I have tanker, tandem/triples and hazmat endorsements. I had a CDL in another state up until 2003, let it lapse and got a CDL here in Texas in August of 2018.

    I'd really appreciate any leads.

    Thanks!

    I don't have leads... but what about something like Fedex or UPS? Maybe a local freight company like Old Dominion, R+L or Southeastern freight?

    Don’t ever let that Haz Mat expire.

    I’m going to PM you with some ideas on who to talk to.

    Great credentials. One of my old pals had a good gig up here delivering fuel to gas stations and trains. 5 days a week with bankers hours and good pay. Wound up getting fired cause his onboard cameras came on too many times. Some kinda traffic violations. Some companies around Waco who wholesale fuel surely.

    Oldest son drives for Dupre' delivering fuel - he's been there like 15 years, and still loves it. No overnights, unless they want him to work another depot for a week or two, AND he agrees to it. Then he hotels it while he's there.

    Enterprise Products crude oil drivers average $90K per year, but I’m not sure if you have producing wells in your area.

    Thanks for all the replies, I really appreciate them! They did it to me again- they ran me up to KC and ran out my 70 on the way south. I just had to reset in Joplin, Missouri, and come right back on the clock and start chucking their freight.
