Force of habit

It's a lot better than hitting the hazards before a railroad crossing OR honking the horn before backing into a parking space OR taking an embarrasingly wider than necessary turn. In your personal vehicle. Been called on it haha!

What region are you from? As far as I'm aware there is a class starting the last week of March at the Boise terminal.

Getting OD Certified next week!

Hey Bobcat. So it took a while but I got approved as an OD driver! My goal is to get into linehaul but for now I'll be a combo driver. Some days a yard hostler, some days, a P&D driver, some days doing line haul. It's a pretty cool position to be in, considering going through the dock to driver program so I've been trained in those areas. Been good so far though!

Hey Daniel. I'll be headed to SLC terminal. By the way, how did your interview go for the open position of safety manager?

Hey Miss Anne! I'll definitely be more regular on here as much as my schedule allows me.

Hey Bobcat, funny how you mentioned how safety implemented having a road test with the safety manager because apparently before that happened someone before applied and got hired on here as a driver w/ an auto restriction. Somehow, someway this fell under the radar and he was sent out on his own. Destroyed 2 transmissions before he was let go.

Knight a good company??

Hey Shantiwa! Looks like we are going down the same path as far as having a fresh start as a driver for OD. Looks like you got your endorsements so congrats! I already had my CDL A for a year before hand so it may a little bit different process. It consists pretty much of classroom training at one of their terminals wherever it will be held in your region. I'm from NV but they sent me Portland, meanwhile others got sent to Sacramento so it depends. After that week, you'll be sent with a P&D driver doing pickups and deliveries around town so your schedule goes with your trainer. My trainer started either 9 or 10 AM so the day ended around 7 or so. That is usually the bulk of the training, which includes learning the handheld, delivery processes, paperwork and so on. Probably lasts about 4 weeks. After your trainer signs you off, you'll be trained in linehaul. Mostly overnight shifts but you'll be home every day. That lasts about 2 weeks. Then you get sent to a terminal to meet with a safety manager to get certified as an OD driver.

I know it's a lot of info so just holler with any questions. Good luck!

Hey all! It's been a while since I've been on, just been busy training for P&D and Linehaul for the OD training program. I have my eye on doing linehaul to start my seniority on the board but the TM would like me to start on the combo board for the time being until the next graduate finishes.

Now I'm scheduled to see a regional safety manager up in SLC to be certified as an OD driver. Anyone been through this process? Is it as thorough as some of the driver say it is? Guess it's better to be overprepared than not, but any advice from the other drivers on here? Bobcat, looking at you dude!

Anyways, y'all have a good rest of your day and I'll keep you guys posted!
