4 day with out a shower

He isn't showering either though. Why bank them and not use them?

My problem isn't time. The issue is we have to fuel up enough to earn the shower credits to shower 2 people. Apparently my trainer picked me up with no shower credits available.

Sgt - there's something "fishy" about that scenario. Here's the facts: You'll get a shower credit each time you fuel. You can get a "team" shower with only one shower credit. And just for clarification, a team shower provides you with a private shower room for each of you.

4 day with out a shower

So I'm with trainer doing the dollars account it been 4 day with out a shower.how many day you go with out a shower thank you

So, today is day 4. Tomorrow I should be getting a shower. My problem isn't time. The issue is we have to fuel up enough to earn the shower credits to shower 2 people. Apparently my trainer picked me up with no shower credits available. I could pay for a shower. They want $12 though. I would have already spent $48 on showers. Ridiculous. I'm getting by on the baby wipes for now but almost out.

Being sent home from orientation

So, I went with May Trucking. Orientation started on Tuesday. I was really concerned because my shifting skills are really bad still. So, anyway, what happened is that they ended up doing the day 1 road test in an automatic because that's all they had available in the yard. Needless to say, I ended up passing that part. Then, I did good enough on the backing that I haven't been in the truck since that first day. It's just been videos and paperwork since then. The trainer isn't available until next Tuesday so they are paying for a bus ticket back home to spend time with the family. Trainer will be coming to my town to pick me up. So great. Really excited. :)

May trucking

So pretty decided on May Trucking. Haven't heard mention of it here. Anyone drive for them? They are 35 cpm to start. Schneider was 38 cpm. So sad for me, but I'm a noob so just glad for an opportunity . Cheers!

Two weeks notice or no?

I don't know if I was listening to Road Dog or I read it here, but is it possible that you can give a 2 week notice and then be routed near your home, and told you can quit now and go home, only to have a truck abandonment on your DAC? Is that a possibility?
