Work history?

Awsome, thanks! I will get a letter from them that has my hire date. Why would it not show up though? It is a small business but I would have thought that any place you worked would show up. As you can tell, I don't know much about the hire right thing.lol

Work history?

Ok, so I have been driving a bus for 15 years, and I put in an application with a company and they e-mailed a report back to me from hire right or something, & it shows no work history. Will that keep them from hiring me? I did get a ticker 2 and a half years ago but I told her about that and she acted like it was no big deal. I can prove that im working, im just not sure what I need to do now.

Background checks???

Celadon. No, I have not called, mainly because I had no idea if thats the norm. And I also know that they are probably pretty busy with the holiday and all.

Background checks???

How long does it usually take for a recruiter to call you back after they run the background checks? Its been 3 days & was kinda thinking maybe she's not going to call me back. Any helpful insight would be awsome! Thanks

Does size matter?

Ok I know this is going to be a stupid question, but going to ask anyway. Does size matter with truck driving? What I mean is, I'm small, like 92 lbs and 5' 3 or so. I mean, I know I can drive the truck, what I'm wandering about is passing the physical assessment they put you through. Im looking at going with celadon if they take me. If anyone has went thru them and can tell me what its like, I'd greatly appreciate it. Any info on the physical stuff would be great, and any advice on things I can start doing now to prepare for it. It looks like I will go in October providing all my checks come back ok. And also, I already have a medical card that I got in august, will that make a difference? I currently drive a school bus so have to have the medical card for that. Thank you for any info you can provide! thank-you-2.gif

Info on swift?

Was it your choice on going to just 4-5 a week? I am going to apply with them as well and see if they respond. Im a little worried about an incident, in march of 2013 I did get a ticket that was classified as "imprudent". I rear ended a vehicle at a stop sign, they started to go and then abruptly stopped again. I have a class b cdl that iv had for 15 years, and have always done all I could to protect it. That was the only ticket that iv ever had, but I'm afraid its going to "haunt" me on this. Thank you for the info, I just want to know ALL that I can!

Info on swift?

So, im really seeming to have a hard time on finding a school that offers cdl training. Errol, I'm hoping you read this and will give me any info on swift that you can. I want to get with a company that I will make some money. I had read bad reviews on swift, but thats going to be with any company. I have applied at millis as well. Do you know how much I could maybe expect to get from swift? As you can tell I still have a lot to learn about this industry, but I'm very eager to take in all that I can. I want to make educated decisions as much as possible. Thanks in advance for all the help and info, this sight has really been a big if not huge help!

Awesome, thanks for the input. So, let me pick y'alls brain on this...would I be better getting my cdl with an individual or with a school? What I mean is, I have someone that has drove for 20 years thats willing to train me to pass my cdl.

Hoping to get a little advice. ..

Hello all..my name is Carrie and a deff newbie to this industry. Im working on my permit now for class A, with air brake & comb veh endorsment. I have a class b that iv had for 15 yrs. Anyway, im checking into the company paid cdl and I guess im a little confused, do these companys not take students from just any state? I live in mo and looking to find a company that does like 14 days on and then home for 2 or 3 days. Im close to prime but choosing not to go there. I have read a lot of info on here, been a big help. Anyway, any info or advice will be greatly appreciated. Im suppose to call a lady at Knight on monday and have also filled out a form for driver solutions, don't know much about them. Thanks again and stay safe!

What is the physical assessment that some companies do?

Hi all, I'm new here. My name is carrie and im at the moment studying for my permit. I have a class b cdl iv had for 15 years driving a bus. No air brakes thou. So studying for that too. I have a question, what is the physical assessment that some companies do? I have just seen it mentioned here and there. I have a medical card already, if that helps. I just got a little worried when seeing the physical assessment thing, that it might be something that will throw me out of it. I hope not cuz I am wanting to do this. Im just petit.lol I have a lot of other questions, but will leave it at that for now. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!!

Looking for advice....

Hi everyone, I'm Carrie. I have a few questions that I'm hoping to get some insight on. First off, I already have a class b cdl with passenger endorsment, have had for 15 years, but needing a change. I am studying for the class a. I also already have my medical card as well, dont know if that helps or not. I need advice on the company paid schooling. Do the companys not hire from all states? I am looking at roehl and I live in Mo, would that be an option for me? Im close to prime but am choosing to not go there. I would like to find a company that I could go out 10 to 14 days at a time, then be home for 3 to 4 days. After the training of course. Anyway, any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
