A lot of my family lives there or in East Ridge. I lived there for a short time when I was a kid.

I just now saw this post. Sorry for the delay. There are a couple of Walmarts around. I'm pretty sure the one in Ft. Oglethorpe is trucker friendly.

Start CDL School for Stevens Transport Mon. 6/6/16 (Whew, glad that one is in that date!!)

I totally agree with Chickie. Dealing with work procedures and deadlines, whether conditions and other things that come along with actually driving a truck is one thing. Every trucker has to deal with that. Should be expected actually. However, being talked down to, and being degraded and belittled and made to feel less of human, that's another. That's wrong and something that everyone has every right to stand up to. I expect some hardships, some tough times, but I WILL NOT be treated like less of a human. Not by anyone

Thanks Chickie. The Examiner was from a different school location, so he didn't know the area. He forgot to tell me where to turn, so we ended up going off route for a little ways until we got back to the start. Then we made the right turns. He was pretty anxious after missing that turn though. He looked at me and said that I seemed calmer than he was. He also said that my alley dock was the best he's seen in a very long time. Whipped around and got in. Did one pull up just to get it straighter and fit it in like a glove. Really does a wonder to a battered self esteem :P

1st attempt failed. Thoughts on Gypsum Express, CT Transportation(comcar) or Shaffer/Crete

Here is my recruiter's email for CT. She's been very upfront and she has kept up with me on a regular basis while I've attended my CDL school. Send her an email and ask away. addavis@comcar.com
