Just finished an interview with trinity medical and they cleared me medically for prime orientation. Next is background and driving record checks and i got nothing that would come up bad at all. Seems like a clear shot for prime!!! I am so excited and happy!

Im really happy that my recruiter julie called me right back concerned and asked if i would mind faxing over my sleep study records as well as taking them. She just saved me a bit of jassle and possibly lots of debt. She told me that this exact thing happened before to a different driver. Borderline cpap results made a driver be delayed by a month. Shes got my back!!!

My recruiter got so scared about trinity. She thought id have to be delayed 30 days for a cpap machine results. Trinity called me after looking at my sleep study results. They said nothing will keep me from attending orientation on time according to my medical records. Worst case scenerio they would give me a 40 day card to get my license then after i become a member of prime thats when i would be called back and get my sleep study done again only if worst case.
