From CDL School and beyond...

Hi Rick,

I thought the same thing so I called the Iowa DOT just yesterday. As of right now testing on an automatic won't put any restrictions on my CDL. There is talk of making that change in Iowa in the near future but not within the time frame of me getting my CDL.

Background check

I was actually able to go back into my application and edit it so I added it to that section. So the info is there. Thanks for replying!

Background check

Right. I listed all my other dirty laundry because I knew it would come up anyway. I'll just call her on Monday and let her know. Right now I'm in "future hire" status because I haven't started CDL school yet so I'm hoping it won't be viewed as an attempt to get around anything.

Background check

As I said in my other post I've got a few offers already. I've been totally upfront about my past already and got a call back from two companies but I realized I forgot to tell one about a misdemeanor from 2006 for Knowingly damaging property under $500( I punched a hole in a wall at my apartment when I was 20). Should I just call my recruiter back and tell her ahead of the orientation or is it not that big of a deal since it's a minor charge? Do most companies do the background check before they even call you back or at orientation? It honestly slipped my mind because it was such a minor charge.

From CDL School and beyond...

Hi All,

I'm registered up for CDL school starting in March and going until April. It's a community college course and it's only concerned about me getting my CDL and not preparing me to drive. I've starting applying to some companies and I've got two "future hire" offers so far. One from Schneider and one from Westside Transport. I've got a few questions about the meaning of "future hire" status and about how strict Schneider is about shifting right away. I'll only get about two days of prep before the road test at the school and the testing will be on an automatic. I want to and know that learning a 10 speed is vital but this is the only CDL school within 100 miles any direction. What should I expect from Schneider orientation? Will I be in the simulator substantially before we hit the road? I learn really fast and I'm watching daily videos on YouTube about double clutching, down shifting, hi/lo, etc. Can anyone ease my troubled mind?!?!?!
