I plan to apply to Prime. Just waiting til I have a bit more money saved to prepare for the month of unpaid training. I will definitely be following your diary!

Prime was my first pick up company but they didn't accept me right away until May. So I applied to my other options and found Maverick! I like the company and the positive reviews of the training.

I am wishing you with ur journey as well girly! :)

Congrats there Flatie C the Greyhound is a Rite of Passage in the Trucking Industry and a memory you won't soon forget. I really can't remember anyone saying my ride on the dog was great! Can't wait to do it again. Now I leave you with singing that darn Toonces the driving cat song.

Haha I reviewed my bus ticket and the bus will depart 7:45 and will be at Lil rock at 6am. Thats almost 12hrs ride!! But thats alright, as long as they have wifi inside or I will have my phone with me then I will be okay.

and thanks!

Congratulations Flatie!! Hope you enjoy your time in "The Rock". You will be about 30 minutes from where I live. Maverick is an awesome company and I think you will be very successful there!!

What company do you drive? Yeap!! Thats why I choose them! I am really looking forward for new experience. Thanks!

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 Maverick gets back to me by tomorrow, I'll be heading to little rock on saturday my self... I honestly don't think they will as my current company isn't returning their call... think they want me to stay lol.... I got a backup plan if that fails though. rather go to Maverick, but Gordon gave me the rehire okay if i need.. even set for Orientation too.

What company are you in right now? What about Melton? They have their HeadQ here in Tulsa, too bad they dont have a company sponsored training but they are a reputable company. Also you applied at TCD at Maverick?

The spot was very hard to get since they only allow 12 students per month. I got approved March and almost 1 month of waiting to get the spot. Hopefully everything will be spot in my orientation.

Company Sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

I applied for glass divison at Maverick. Melton wont hire me due to "needing a tow out" last year.. said its tooo fresh. and TMC said the same =/ Worst case, I drive safely for another year with GTI and then go to one of them... Ive been driving for a few years now and the only issue was the tow out... guess thats major points...

If you don't mind me asking. What is a "tow out"? I'm assuming you slid into a ditch or something maybe? Is this considered a preventable accident? I'm also assuming there were no other vehicles involved.

Thanks, JJ
