Retired Vet with Class A CDL Needs Advice

Thanks for taking the time out to answer my question. I was able to find a company that did exactly what Lawdog had mentioned. They will put me on the road for four weeks with a driver trainer. Should have mentioned before I had already used my GI bill. Anyways I was able to get the information I was looking for and I start Monday. Thanks again and I hope I can return the favor someday.

Retired Vet with Class A CDL Needs Advice

A little background about myself. I retired from the military and decided trucking would be a good fit for my life style. I checked out a couple of companies in my area , Phoenix. However, I did not want to go to their schools and be tied up in a contract for a year just to get my CDL. I studied and passed the CDL exam and used the military road skills test waiver to get my CDL. Now with that said, I have no hands on training with a ten speed transmission, just classroom. Swift says that is fine but I need to prove I can use this type of transmission. I also have a interview with Schneider this Tuesday and from what I have read in another post they will terminate the interview once they have learned you do not have hands on experience. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. For example, is there somewhere to go to get this experience?
