DOT Drug Testing: Urinalysis or Hair Follicle?

WEL companies is UA only. Worked there for over a year and never heard of anyone getting a hair sample done. Also, First Fleet is UA as well. At least the one down here in Orlando FL is. Couldn't confirm on the other locations since they mostly act independently. Hope this helps.

Earl L. Henderson Trucking Reviews

I'll be starting at Henderson on December 7th. They told me my Florida CDL permit was useless and that they still have me get an Illinois permit when I get there.

Drivers score victory in Werner class action case

Will probably mean nothing for at least a few years due to the appeal process. As to what exact changes it will make in Werner's student trainer program there is no telling. I would not worry about it right now.If you go through training with Werner this will take place ,if at all, well after you complete training.

Sounds good to me.

What could this mean for a perspective driver for Werner? I have a pre-hire from Werner after I get out of CDL school

Beginning my career with PAM

Reading your CDL manual? You should be using our High Road Training Program! It has the entire CDL manual built into it. We've broken it down into small chunks and added multiple choice questions to each section. We've also built in a review system which will recycle the questions you've already done for more repetition and better retention. It's 1000 times easier learning the materials with our program than it is trying to just read the manual by itself. You should definitely give it a go.

Here is how our High Road Training Program breaks down:

To Get Your CDL Permit:

  • Rules & Regulations
  • Driving Safely
  • Transporting Cargo Safely
  • Air Brakes
  • Combination Vehicles
  • Pre-Trip Inspection
  • Driving Exam

To get your CDL endorsements which are optional but highly recommend:

  • Transporting Passengers
  • Doubles And Triples
  • Tankers
  • Hazardous Materials

Two sections we've built ourselves with info you'll need for everyday life on the road:

  • Logbook
  • Weight & Balance

Two sections for anyone considering flatbed:

  • Cargo Securement
  • New York State Coil Endorsement

Don't get me wrong Brett I do use the high road system on here but I'm on my phone most of the time and for some reason it doesn't always want to load

Beginning my career with PAM

On Sunday 8-16-2015 I leave for Career Tech in Lakeland Florida for my three week CDL training. Sponsored through PAM transport. They are paying for my hotel and schooling. I'm responsible for food and transportation to the school and hotel. Since I'm being dropped off at the hotel I'm really hoping I can carpool with whoever my roommate will be. School is from 0700-1700 Monday thru Friday. I'm extremely excited and nervous as hell. I've been reading up on my cdl manual and watching different videos.

After the three weeks I come home for about a week then I'll get a phone call from my DM with PAM which I'll be given all my bus information and list of what to bring to Tontitown Arkansas. Three day company orientation where I'll meet my trainer then be on the road for about 17 days. From which point I will be dropped off at whatever terminal has the truck I'm assigned to. From what I've been told I will then have the option to get my first load and head home or get my first load and just start driving until I want to take home time.

Beginning my journey with Roehl.

I hear Roehl does hair folical testing? How does that work out? Interested to know how far back they look. I hear a lot of people saying that companies will automatically disqualify you if you take any anit-depressants.

PAM vs Prime?

Unfortunately Prime will not accept me due to my previous employer (non-transport related) terminated me. I guess I will continue looking. If anything I know I can go with PAM transport since they are ready to send me to CDL school and get me rolling, however I really don't want to be forced to team for 6 months.
