Hey that's my home terminal , welcome to Werner dancing-banana.gif

Are there any Werner flatbed trainers here? I graduated driving school on the 1st and I start orientation in Lithia Springs on the 11th.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I used to be a trainer for Werner, but not flatbed, picked up a large percentage of my students from Lithia Springs.

Do you know how transportation is handled after orientation but while waiting on a trainer? I can either drive myself down there and have my own truck anytime I need it but then have to leave it sitting 4.5 hrs from home for probably a month or more or I can have my wife drop me off and be without a ride for the several days I wait.

They will generally but you a greyhound ticket, but you can get dropped off if you want. They will put you up in a hotel during orientation and while waiting for a trainer. They have a shuttle that will take you back and forth and to Wal-Mart and a few other places. Lithia is one of the terminals that has trainers coming through fairly often so you shouldn't have to wait too long.

Yeah, according to the Greyhound schedule the bus doesn't get there till pretty late. I'm glad they offer transportation back and forth to the store. I'm also glad I may not have to wait long, the director at my driving school said he had never heard of Werner taking students fresh out of driving school for their flatbed.

Yeah, I can't really answer any questions about their flatbed dept as I never dealt with it.
