I have a hard time staying tight when I initiate the first pull. What's the best assistance exercise for this? Should I just load the bar and do first pull deadlifts, or does anyone have other preferred assistance work to tighten that up?

It depends on your development with the lifts. Snatch & Clean deadlifts work well, as well as pause deadlifts

Sn/cln deadlifts to the knee and floating sn/cln deadlifts. the latter is better if you have trouble w regard to flexibility because it will be easier to set and hold the position from the top.
