Well it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that me and Schneider Bulk didn't work out. 8 of us started and I was the only one left after 8 days. They sent me home on the 23rd for Christmas but, unfortunately they decided not to bring me back. It was nothing bad, and I left on good terms. I was informed that I am rehire-able in the future.

The problem is that with having 2 knee surgeries, and having only 80% ROM (Range of Motion) in my left knee, they noticed that I have a hard time climbing on Tankers 2-6 times a day. They feel they are working in the best interest of me and the company, and recommended that I strengthen my knee further before attempting Tanker again.

The training was intense and phenomenal and I learned a great bit. Aint nothing like getting hit by 6,000 gallons of water surge. Darn-near knocked me into the steering wheel. wtf.gif Those of you interested in joining SNBC. You are making a great decision. Just didn't pan out for me unfortunately.

I'll keep y'all updated on whats next and who else I apply for. Oh, and ideas on other great companies to work for, please let me know.

Dewey, this isn't a deal breaker. Just apply for companies that haul a box not a tanker. I think you'll turn out to be just fine! Things happen for a reason and you left on absolutely good terms so this won't haunt you. Good luck man!

Deweykid - that's a bummer! But only a small one. Nobody will consider that a mark against you so it won't affect your ability to get on anywhere else. Obviously you'll want to stay away from flatbed for the same reason so dry van or refrigerated it is!

As far as choosing your next company, once you narrow down the type of freight you'd like to haul and how often you'd like to get home your list will shrink significantly. At that point you just pick the one you feel suits you best and go for it.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
