I did teams with my trainer from day 1. And I was told we would not be teaming. So if you don't want too, make sure they are very clear about it. It was gross but my case was extreme. I have to go with a trainer again and I won't hire on with a company that does teams as part of training. Just my personal preference.

I know for myself I confirmed with my recruiter and also spoke with a trainer. When my day is done the wheels stop and the trainer is always awake when I am driving. That was one of my concerns when choosing a company.

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.

If you go with Schneider your Trainer is riding shotgun while you drive. You'll start earning your solo pay quicker than with most companies.

Everyone here is lying. How do you feel about spooning? I recommend you bring good hygiene care products for when you get close and cuddly at night. You may also want to have a detailed discussion with your trainer about which spoon you want to be.

Even if the wheels stop and you sleep in the top bunk, the last trainee slept there and the one before... I don't get what the concern is.

So you change the bedding every day? The trainer has his bed setup with his sheet blankets and pillows so when its time for you to sleep you move all of that off and put your stuff on? Sounds like a blast.

No. They say you put your bedding on top of his.

Ok so i will just bring a sleeping bag and roll it up after i'm done. So that's not bad i guess.

It might take all of two minutes to completely change bedding. But a sleeping bag will resolve that issue. It's really not a big deal. Training is going to be so stressful that where you sleep will be the last of your concerns, you'll probably be grateful to get any kind of decent sleep at all. Getting used to the truck moving while you sleep without waking up constantly is a chore for many.
