I’m currently in Schneider orientation in Dallas...just finished day 1. I just wanted to put this out there for others.

When I was researching before coming, I had seen that there’d be an agility test. So I had spent time doing squats, walking up and down stairs, lifting bags over my head...all in preparation of the “scary” physical agility test.

As of this week...Schneider in Dallas is no longer doing the agility test.

Gypsy Rose, Good to know information for anyone in the future but DO NOT STOP with the work outs! You will be better off with a routine physical program. You will be stronger, healthier and better off all around by doing a regular routine. If you combine it with good eating habits you will be a whole lot better in your health and looks. Just look at some other drivers that do not do any workouts or constantly eat at the buffets. Another plus, if you smoke quit now and you will never regret it.

We were the last ones in the Dallas OC to do the physical last week.

If you failed it, you could come again next week!

Of course I’m going to keep taking care of myself. And I don’t smoke. I just wanted to put it out there because I’d seen posts and YT videos of people worried about the agility test at Schneider.

You must be out with your TE this week. Hope it’s going well for you & I’ll see you around the OC.

Your instructors are going to have hell this week on the yard when they see your backing. The heat index in dallas is like 110+ F at the moment.

I know it was hot last week, but this week is terrible.

It’s horrible!!! We all are suffering from this heat. I wish I could say it’ll be better next week. But I don’t think that’ll be the case. Things are changing up. Next week, myself and several others will be in class with your group. Then go out with our TE’s the following week. So I’ll be in class with you 🤗
