Doing all my research and studying for the exam

Thanks for the vote of confidence Old School....I have talked with a lot of different drivers for Con-Way and haven't heard any complaints, I'm thinking I made the right choice.

Be safe out there and I will look for you on the road

Doing all my research and studying for the exam

Well...It is official. I am now a Con-Way Truckload employee. Orientation was fairly painless, lots and lots of information to absorb in a short time but I have been told my finisher (Trainer) will be able to help with anything I didn't pick up in orientation. Road test and backing test was a little nerve racking but hey it wasn't bad. I got to drive a 2014 Intenational with the new Cummins motor...what a sweet ride. I am expecting to head out with my finisher some time this next week. Will keep you guys updated as much as possible. Everyone I have met at Con-Way so far has been great, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Looking forward to getting going on my new career with a great company.

Everyone be safe out there and I will look for you on the road!

Depending on where you live the local workforce office can help. I just got my WIA approved through Weld County at the Greeley office...the also have schools in state that can get you on with the oilfield guys. It may all depend on why you are on probation though...if they can hire you or not.

I finally heard back from the state on the WIA grant...I'm all good to go. Looks like I will be heading to Springfield to start school on the 13th of Jan. Got my background back from TSA already and I'm approved for my Haz-mat endorsement as well....Looks like things are finally moving along. I'm really looking forward to getting back in a truck and making some money.

Down Time

I have also went to my local library and got my card, they have well over a 4000 audiobooks and movies that you can download when you have wifi. The best part is it is free....just another suggestion for the down time.

Knight/squire program

Here's a tip on how you can really do well on those state exams. Forget about that CDL manual and study the High Road Training Program Seriously, I aced all my tests this way without even cracking open that boring manual. Try it, you'll be so glad you took the high road!

Old school is right...I did the high road training program as well and didn't even crack the state manual...only missed one question on the haz mat test...aced all the other ones! Good luck!

Trying To Pick One!

Thank you for your service...I looked into Crete for a couple of reasons. They don't make you drive as a team with your trainer...that makes sense since you can't learn anything from them in the bunk...(at least I hope not), they also seem to have very nice equipment and the drivers I talked to about them had nothing bad to say. Unfortunately they don't hire in my area, so I'm headed to Con-Way truckload. Good luck and stay safe!
