I put my two week notice in at my current job and it started a feeding frenzy. Everyone was like...oh no! She’s leaving in two weeks so we have to get her to do...whatever. Jeez! I’m excited to get started in my CDL training but right now I’m more excited for my two weeks notice to be up.

I hope you are all having a great day/week!

Lying takes up too much valuable brain have to remember what you said to whom. I will be honest and if there is an issue then I can try to work through it and figure it out.

Mark Twain once said as long as you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything... LOL ain't that the truth

My recruiter called today just to check on me and to see if I had any questions. We talked about how late I will get there on Sunday night and how early I have to go to orientation. So, I will be leaving Friday night instead and getting there late Saturday night. Now I will have a full day to explore, study, and relax. Awesome!

Good call. I would rather be early and rested than last and spent..... Esp, if you are taking the bus, and have to rely on a schedule that could get you delayed to the following week....

The next two weeks will fly by. Good thinking to get there early. Now if my daughter will get her drivers license I will be heading that way soon I hope

When you arrive, you'll have to call for the shuttle to cine pick you up.

There are three of the The Red, Blue and Green

The Red serves

The Millinnium Building and other businesses in town mainly for licensed drivers

The Blue

Millinnium Building, Wal-Mart L Mart Advantage, US Bank, OCH medical as needed, and Greyhound

The Green

The Millennium Building, Department of Motor Vehicles, Post Office, Health Department

Hours/Routes are a generalized. Al routes are subject to change to include availability and normal hours if operation.

Holiday and weekend tend to follow the Blue Line ~

* Note # 1 I'm not going to post the three phone numbers, nor the schedule. You can pick up a business size card at the Security desk at the Millieum building.

*Note #2. I downloaded an app called SnapBizCard, it snap shots business cards to your phone and then you can ca and access them from your phone. Get bus was cards for. Security, your Fleet Manager , Student Services manager and assistant at the plaza, etc

Fleet Manager:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
