Swift hair follicle test

I plan to apply for company paid training in Sept/Oct, once my kid is back in school. Im looking at Prime or Swift.

I buzz my head because I've thinned over the years. Is there a min length hair they use. Could they take hair else where?

(I dont use and never have, never will)

Accidents and Getting a New Job

I'm going to straight up ask if you have ADHD? Your actions fit someone who has ADHD. I went through your post history and see you have taken Nortriptyline, which is prescribed as an alternative to drugs like Adderall.

I concerned if I'm able to make such a connection, that a perspective employer would do the same.

What can I put on the floor?

Use 303 UV protectant instead. You can get it at any marine store or order it online from amazon.

I been using tire shine to keep my floor looking amazing but the fumes and chemical burns are killing me. What can I use to keep the floor looking deep black wet and shinny?

Putting my foot to the pavement, starting a new life journey, in trucking.

Hello all,

I am happy that I found this site and forums. I get a good feeling and knowledge, with the advice and help that is offered here.

I'm a late 40something who was laid off from an accounts payable career. I worked for a postal equipment wholesale distributor (who was bought out by a large MNC/TNC) . I started as quality control and warehouse assistant. Basically, I helped unload containers, made sure equipment was ready for market. later, I moved into the office and into accounting dept.

I have a tween daughter, and married. I live in southeast PA. Actually, I'm a few miles from where G-town hails from. So I 'm really interested what he, the rest of you have to say and learn from.

Right now, I'm looking at Company training, rather than attend a private school/tech/com. collage program. I like to make a committment and follow through on it. So focus is important to me.

My wife is very supportive and encouraging of my decision to follow through on a CDL career. Her uncle was OTR, she helped her Aunt with raising thier kids while he was out OTR.

Until a year ago, I've been into VW turbo diesel cars as a hobby. It sucks what happened to VW and dieselgate. I ,also, in my 20s got my private pilot license. Though, the only flying I do now is on a computer. I'm into boating too, mostly sailing. See the trend here, I like traveling all modes of transport.

I'm looking to start Fall, while my daughter is in school, and my wife and I can start preparing and adjusting to this new journey. I'm looking forward to your advice and company.

Thank you

Interesting Driver Recruiting FB Post!

It looks like a Krone trailer with a DAF tractor (Paccar) European

If they used a domestic carrier, probably get a cease and disist letter.

Oh hi, I'm new! I'm looking for a career change. I'll post a formal intro soon not to highjack thread.

They also don’t buy American. That’s a European spec trailer.
