I'm flying to salt lake city on 1/1 to start school with CR England. I am super excited to be starting a new career. I will update as much as possible while I am there and also what each phase of training is like once I get hired on. According to the information I was provided there are 4 phases to go through during your 1st 6 months with the company. I chose this company because it only has a 9 month commitment. As long as you stay the whole 9 months you are not required to pay money back for your training.

Another reason I chose this company is because my recruiter was knowledgeable. He answered every question I asked or called me back if he didn't know the answer when I asked a question . I spoke with at least 7 other company recruiters and most of them didn't want to answer questions or had a general attitude that they couldn't care less if I went with their company or not. Wish me luck!!

Did you get your permit and medical at home?

I've been playing phone tag with my recruiter from England for the better half of a week now. It seems as though every time I call her back she's in a meeting and that she will get back to me that afternoon. Well, that's been 4 days in a row now. I guess we'll see. Good luck in training!

Think holiday/vacation time and maybe they are short staffed. Be patient.

Hi! I'm starting there as well, after 18 Jan when an old accident falls off my MVR. How did you finagle going to Utah? It seems I'm destined for a school outside of Asheville....

MVR:

Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.

I got picked up from the airport today by a CR England shuttle. When I arrived I was led to a "hotel check in" desk where they assigned me a room and bunk bed. This facility is pretty cool!! There is a work out room, movie theater, a game room with pool tables, a restaurant, and essentially a gas station miny mart. There are several tv rooms downstairs. There are seperate living rooms for men and women upstairs where the dorms are. There are 2 kitchenettes upstairs which consist of fridges, microwaves and vending machines.

To answer your question big Scott. .. yes I did get my permit and physical taken care of before I even started applying to companies. I'm not sure why I ended up in utah as I live in Mobile, Al and there were training facilities that were closer.

I will update more in a bit

Are you in a hotel or a CRE facility?
