Congratulations Curt!

Remember all this as you begin your new career. Tenacity and persistence are important attributes for professional drivers. Just try to never get those two qualities confused with stubbornness. Their is a distinction there that many truck drivers overlook.

Now that right there is a brilliant statement. Going to remember that one.

I got sent home from Prime after working my butt off. I learned to drive, but then I drove sick, poorly, and it was stupid. I was sick the whole time, actually, prolly from the damned bus, and I don't blame them. I didn't give my best impression, but ugh, so much work! Oh, well, I took the knowledge with me. So, a couple of weeks ago I went to Knight and they sent me home to get a note from a doc because I took antidepressants temporarily in 2008. 2008! Sheesh, I even did those modified push ups for weeks to pass the upper body strength test with my old lady arms, and I did. I got a referral from primary doc for psych to deem me mentally worthy, and then Knight recruiter said they didn't want me anyway. No reason given. Now I've got no more money to survive during training periods so need to save up again before I can apply other places. I know I really want to do this, because I'm still determined. It's just taking longer than I'd like. My point is, you're not alone in your frustration. Don't give up!

Update: I was inspired by Curt’s original post & called a different recruiter at Knight. She picked up the phone right away. Looked up my records & said they’re waiting for the head of security to give me his approval. But I’m definitely still in the running. She gave my app another look & said she didn’t see any red flags. I’m leaning toward swift but am still comparing both.

One thing you might be over looking here is the time of year. I mentioned this because I almost was looked past because of the time of year and I was only going for orientation. You would be going for training and orientation, if you really want to go to that company and no other ask again after the first of the year and see what they say. If not who cares lots of others out there. Now... how did your physical go?
