Prime Orientation 13 April

Well its official I'm getting on the bus to springfield on saturday :)

I'll see you there on the 20th! Had to postpone my orientation a week later. I'm renting a car to get there...I can't see myself riding the dog for 12 hours when it's only a 5 and half hour drive from Des Moines IA.

Prime Orientation 13 April

I'll be starting orientation on 4/13 too. Excited to get everything going. I've been studying every free second I have and I'm feeling pretty good about the permit test. Looking forward to getting out on the road and learning the trade. Have some areas of concern for the driving part, but I know my trainer will teach me what to do so I can pass the driving test.

Yea Doc I feel the same way...excited and concerned, but I'm positive the trainers will teach us what we need to know. You going to Springfield as well?

Prime Orientation 13 April

I just filled out the application a little bit ago, can't wait to get the ball rolling. How long did it take you guys to hear back and get everything started? Also did they make you get your permit first or did you just too? I thought it said at the end of the 4 day orientation you test for your cdl. Thanks in advance and good luck.

Welcome Logan. I filled the online app and got a call the same day from the recruiter. She told me to study general knowledge, air brakes, combination and tanker to get my permit. I think getting your permit first before heading there would free up time to study up on other stuff. After orientation I believe you hop on a trainers truck and do 10k miles and then head back to Springfield to test out for the CDL. Hope that answers your questions. I should know by tomorrow of all the details.

I'm considering starting driver trainer class starting on the 13th to become a psd trainer. I've been approved already. Just weighing the options of doing it. Might see you there.

Nice Terry. Just got a call from the recruiter, she'll send me an email of all the details of orientation tomorrow. Hope to see you there!

Automatic transmission question

How but inverters? Since no APU's do the trucks have smart idle or whatever it's called?

nope none of that you are allowed to use an inverter if it plugs into one of the 12v plugs in the truck. you can idle the truck if its below 30 or above 70

Bummer! We have APUs and inverters in all trucks. Damn I got lucky.

Who you working for RT?
