My prime experience (PSD & TNT)

Hey Dennis,

No, just waiting for drug test results. They said maybe by Friday. Meanwhile, I can't go to the pad until I get a badge and I can't get a badge until my drug test comes back. I've been studying pretrial like crazy. Otherwise I'm at a standstill until my test comes back.

My prime experience (PSD & TNT)

So woke up this morning with a message saying my drug screen results couldn't be found. On my way to millennium to do another one.

Just quick update...

I passed the Sim analysis 93 out of 100. So, back to the waiting game. No classes until 1400 tomorrow. Taking the night off, going to relax and hang out.

God bless

My prime experience (PSD & TNT)

Well think let's give this a try. I will try to update when I can, no promises though.

04/24 1500: Checked in at Campus Inn. I live locally (40 miles), so I could have driven every day. Decided for ease, I would just stay here. Spent the rest of the day getting acquainted with my roommate. He is pretty good guy, from Tennessee.

04/25 0900: Orientation with Ms. V, she seems nice but won't put up with BS. I have had no issues with her. She got us setup to start CBT's, have until midnight Tuesday to get them done.

1100: Sent to Orientation office to hand in paperwork. Got their blessing to move on. Didn't expect any different as my driving history, criminal record and work history and crystal clean.Spent the afternoon working on CBT's. Got all but 6 done before had to go to the Sim lab.

2115: Sim lab. Instructor is funny, took a little drive on the simulator. Done at 2345. Back to my room by 0000, had to stop and have a cigarette.

04/26

0800: Roll call amd survey to find a trainer. Have to go millennium building to download CPAP before next class at 1100.

0900: Millennium building... WOW!!! I am really impressed with this building. Once I got done at Cardinal sleep, went to look around and went into the company store. I can tell this place is going to be a problem for me. I have seen a few things that I "need".

1100: Health class. Waiting for my Sim class to start at 1300. Also waiting to get cleared to get my badge. Otherwise I will have all afternoon to do a little laundry and study for pre-trip inspection. Very anxious to get in a truck.

Overall I am really impressed so far. Everyone has been really nice and they don't hesitate to answer questions. Will try to update when I can as I go through this process.

Keep the rubber side down and be safe out there.

God Bless

Future primate??? Need help

Hey thanks guys for all the suggestions and your insight.

Just an update: My recruiter called last Tuesday and had someone cancel. So, I got to start on Monday. I am currently checked in at the Campus Inn in Springfield, MO. Orientation starts tomorrow.

I am excited and nervous to start a new career, as this is all very new to me. I have never even been in a truck of this size. But can't wait to start.

Future primate??? Need help

Just got off the phone with a prime recruiter, they can't get me in orientation until the middle of may... unless I go tanker, then he can get me in to orientation in 2 weeks. Don't know what to do!!! I have made up my mind that I am going to drive company, and want to be able to run as many miles as possible (to make money). I was leaning toward the refer division. PLEASE HELP!!! Any advice or insight is greatly appreciated
