Does anyone know of any decent truck company jobs in Houston, with local runs. We are thinking of moving to Houston from New Jersey. We need benefits for our 5 month old baby boy. Has anyone recently moved? If so, please share your input. We are in our late 20's early 30's. And, excited about moving... I left my career to care for our son and will be depending on my hubby's income until our son is old enough to go to school. Any postive feedback is appreciated. thanks!

Im from Pa and had to work 4 otr co out of NJ to make a living, Paulsboro, NJ. this is a right to work state, now with the new pilot program Mexican drivers can cross are border, this will be one of the first states for drivers to feel the economic hardship, plz advise your husband, this area has been been being bottom feed on cheap mexican labor at the same cost of a Northeast man per hr chrg. the companies make monies not employees, really consider this move. You quality of living standards will go down, good luck!

If u read my last reply, i am a prior driver, new century. let your husband know that and jevic, he may take home $600 a week and have to really bust jis butt for it, if u do move her tell him yello, saisa,abf,r and l carriers, do not get pd %%%%, u can drive thru Ny and NJ quicker thden you can in Hou. Also for your new born, i would not advise this city, his furture might be brighter else where, dont want to c u make the same mistake i did, my son is 14 and in Hou. its to late, i hope in his adult yrs or college he moves, thxs for reading!

Thank you so much for your advice. I will share this with my husband and let him know. I haven't heard of the pilot program. Wow... It seems like houses our so expensive over here that moving to Houston sounded more reasonable. But, he works hard as it is and I care about his health to see him work so hard and get paid less. Thanks again for your valuable advice!

Your welcome, your correct housing is very cheap, in certian areas. But so is the quality of life. Gas is higher here then Nj. You would find services and retail items here would be in the same line of cost in NJ.
If you have the chance to select and area of living, and make a major geographic move, shop around. Good Luck to You and Your Family!
