It would just take some working out with your Dispatcher and the load planner. It will take a little bit to get a rhythm going, but it is doable. You would probably give up xtra nights at home to accomplish it. Maybe sneak in a Friday night depending on the load. it is very doable though. When you met your Dispatcher after training, you would just have to have an upfront conversation about it. Just say I want to run 6 days a week, but take my 34 on Wednesday. Let them know in Tuesday evening and back out Thursday morning. Like I said it would take a few weeks to get the kinks worked out, but I'm positive it is doable.

Dispatcher:

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.

Thanks, that is awesome. After i get through training and all, that is a discussion I will definitely have.

I had the same recruiter.

I may have been declined already though, not sure if I am reading the Driver Pulse info correctly or not.

Does it actually say you were declined?

Yes the driver pulse app said declined. I finally called and spoke with Ashley who said she would find out why and let me know. Waiting for a call now.

I’m still waiting for a call back to find out why myself. The lady I spoke with said she didn’t know, and sounded confused. It did seem clear they didn’t know I haven’t started school yet though, even though I was clear about that with Jamie.

It was a misunderstanding, the recruiter that got my app didn't know I was working with Jamie and that it was for a pre-hire. I should have a pre-hire by end of day.

Pre-hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.
