Wil-Trans it might be.

I have applied. My background check hasn't came back and I can't get ahold of my recruiter. I'm supposed to start on Monday. I'll let you know how things go!

Recruiter said they would call me everyday the week before I start. No calls.

I fail to see the need to talk endlessly with recruiters. i had 1 phone call and 2 emails... one saying everything was approved and one with my orientation packet. I applied on Saturday, talkes to him Monday and was on bus the following Saturday.

Do you know where to go for transportation? they do the bus tickets electronically and you pick it up at a station of your choice. It takes 2 min. You could.probaby shoot him an email "hi just checking in. wanted to touch base on the bus info plz. Dallas terminal is close to me" etc

The recuiter gets paid based on the ppl.brought in. you are money to them. dont panic.

I actually live in Missoula where they do training! I was just worried because he said he would get back to me, but hasn't. I still have admin fees to pay, hotels and stuff like that.

Recruiter said they would call me everyday the week before I start. No calls.

I applied to Jim Palmer transport and everything was going smoothly. My recruiter called me a little over a week ago and said everything has been approved so far and would call me everyday the week before training starts on May 13th.

I didn't hear anything on Monday and called and left a voicemail. Nothing back. On Tuesday I was sent an email of my background check saying a final decision hasn't been made yet that they would send another with a final decision. It showed no employeement history on there and I emailed the address on the pdf and they called and said to not worry that is for any cmv job. All back ground checks go to the safety department to get final approval and that's where mine is. It's now Wednesday and I haven't gotten an email or phone call from my recruiter and I am supposed to start on Monday! Is this abnormal I feel like alot needs to be done before hand like paying admin fees, transportation ect.

Regarding my back ground check I have no criminal record and I had a speeding ticket in 2013.
