Hi all, I've been offered a job at Western Express which I plan to accept but I'm a little worried about their agility test. There's no mention on their website what to expect. I'm worried because I've been through this before, I was hired at Roehl but sent home the 1st day because I couldn't lift 45 lbs over my head without using your legs or back. If I had been warned this was expected I could have saved everyone's time and told them up front I couldn't do this.

So this time I want to be prepared. Anyone been through this? Thanks, Annee

Annee, it's been almost five years since I went to Western Express, but at that time there was no weight lifting requirements. Their physical was very plain vanilla, and just about everybody breezed through it. The only folks who had to do any lifting of any sort were the people going into the flat-bed division. I think you'll be just fine.
