its only been a few days but they all say they will get back in 24 hours. i have a clean record, but if they weren't interested shouldn't they let me know. am i getting antsy or paranoid. i study your tests 4 hours a day. 4.0 in school was a breeze,but this stuff is hard.i've made little trucks and trailers with weights on them so i can mix and match.

HI Lisa, don't give up. Get on the phone and call them and just remind them that you have applied. Those folks deal with a lot of people on a daily basis. Remember that the squeaky wheel always gets the grease.

Yap, I totally agree with the above statements. Keep calling them. Be persistent. When they see you're really interested in working there you'll get a lot more attention. Recruiters often wait to see who they have the best chance of bringing in and focus their attention on those drivers. So keep calling, keep in touch, and keep asking questions. The more persistent you are the more attention you'll get.
