Sounds great!

Recruiters are famous for being hard to get in touch with. If you don't hear from them by thursday I would start calling them. Keep after em until you get someone on the phone. The more interest you show, the better response you'll get on their end.

Alright I feel dumb asking this, as I prob should.

So I haven't heard back from anyone yet and I need advice... Brett and Star you two told me I should start bugging them by Thrusday if I haven't heard from anyone, well I just found out I need surgery which is going to set me back a bit, do I still call and show interest but tell them me fall back? or do I hold off on bugging them? I am at a loss here. any advice would be helpful.

Thanks.

Ask your doctor what the recovery time ( so you can start school,and drive truck on the range) will be. Then you will have a probable date for when you can start school, should any of them call. And if they don't call, don't bug em til your cut loose from the doctor.....Your covered both ways..

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Yeah, I agree with Starcar. Find out when you'll be ready to go. Once you're within a month or two of being able to start in trucking is the time to start making phone calls.
