Prime PSD :-)

congratulations. Val , what's a agility test and did they draw blood for your drug test?

I have made it through my first day and a half here, and I have no complaints yet. I have yet to meet a driver, experienced or in training, that doesn't really enjoy working for Prime. I'm so glad I made the choice that I did!

Day 1 was to be in class at 7am for going over paperwork then off to do an "agility test". This was followed by my drug test and physical. For the physical you wait in a small room packed with people and its so hot in there. Usually my blood pressure is unusually low but it came up well within range due to the environment. This may be helpful to know for anyone that is on the high end of the cusp for cut off. Anyways no problem there, for me!

I followed it up with the background screening and no problems there, either! I'm an angel, lol, yeah right, but on paper it appears that way!

The Sim lab was amazing! I picked right up on double clutching and even got to be the first in my class to "drive" down the road; only upshifting.

The food is good for cafeteria style food, I have no complaints there. And everyone in my class seems to be in a fantastic mood about everything.

Day 2 (well the beginning) started with a class on logging and then a trip to the dmv. Now, we were told we could take the tests twice a day for the next 4 days and to not be afraid if we didn't feel ready, yet. I've got HORRIBLE study habits and wanted to be a little more prepared, but after hearing all this I decided to take the morning bus down there anyways. After almost 4 hours and taking every test twice I managed to get 3/4! Tomorrow all I have to work on is Air brakes, or tonight; I should study tonight...

From everything you've said I think you can try another CSTS without having to disclose to them what took place in your first attempt. You'll need to account for that time period, but you can say you were looking for a job. That is what you were doing. I'm basing that advice on how you answered my questions.

Thank you so much! The thought had crossed my mind. I don't want to come across that I'm lying on my apps because I'm a honest person. But I can do this and I won't feel like I'm being deceitful. But if they ask I'll tell and take the chance that it won't matter. Thank you again!

Are they claiming you owe them money now?

No they did say I owe them nothing!

Also that nothing would be added to my DAC

Any advice on what to say to the next recruiter ? It seemed they didn't like the fact that I'd been to another training school.

Ok, just curious - will they not let you try another time after some additional practice?

Well we were told that the trainers had to have us ready to test my the end of our fourth week and that was that. Something to do with them having to make some cuts.

I need help. I went to a CSTS. I took my cdl road test failed my parralle parking. Twice the same day. Should had waited And came back but I didn't know that's what I should have done. But here's my problem . I've applied to other cdl schools. The first one was ready to take me on but as soon as I mentioned the other school she said they couldn't take me and hung up. I need some advice as to handle the next company that calls me to increase my changes on being able to attend their training program. Please help!
