Eye exam question

so, I guess not quitting the day job yet! I will find out more next week when I go back to the DOT doc.....

Sorry, but you'll have to pass the D.O.T. exam. You'll even have to pass it again when you get hired by someone.

Eye exam question

hey all, went to get the DOT medical exam from the nearest chiropractor's office. All good except my left eye was correctable only to 20/50. Saw my eye doc yesterday and have a new prescription coming. He offered to certify me as 20/40 correctable in the left eye. My question is, can the DOT physical examiner rely on the eye doctor's exam, or must I still pass the eye test in the DOT's examiner's office? thanks,

11/3 plan from Roehl, maybe Schneider?

Hi, just curious if anyone can comment on if this hometime plan works as advertised. Roehl's website, and also I think Schneider's, talk about a plan of being out for 11 days, home for 3. That strikes me as balance between time working and pay, that I could work with the family I have at home. Does it work as intended? I live in North Central Missouri, does it help that I am only about 90 minutes from drop yards for both in the Kansas City area. Thank you in advance for you input!

Worked for Roehl, questions concerning their contract (75k+ miles)

32 cpm at 2000 miles comes out to $640, 2500 = $800, 3000 = $960.

to the original poster, does the .32 cpm include any fuel bonus or raises you might expect in the first few months? The website if I recall advertises an 11/3 schedule, can you maintain that 2800 goal actually over two weeks with 3 at home? thanks,
