Are you an experienced driver yourself? If so you might want to check with JR Schugel. At one time at least, they had a train the spouse program. What the deal was that after you had been satisfactorily employed there for a few months you could train your spouse and all s/he needed was a permit. You ran as a solo driver for several weeks and then Shugel would let you use your assigned truck and a trailer to take the state skills test and once your spouse had a CDL you would run as a team.
Of course you spouse would have to meet all the other hiring requirements, except for the CDL and experience, and pass a DOT physical before training would commence.
Other than that the only company I know of that basically has its own school anymore is Millis. Everyone else that I know that will exchange a work contract for school uses those 2 or 3 week wonder courses through various schools around the country.
Finding the right trucking company is like finding the right person to marry. I really comes down to finding one whose BS you can put up with and who can put up wih yours.
