Marc I totally, 100% agree with Old School.

You have got to take ownership of this; your performance will be measured against a higher bar. Embrace the challenge.

Having trained many new drivers coming into the Walmart Account, I’ve heard lots of orientation stories. It’s an elongated job interview, not automatic, and expect you may be tested to evaluate skills before being assigned a mentor. Be mentally prepared for this.

Good luck!

Thanks G. Road test already listed. Backing not. (That one is still a concern). Hope is their process is road test then Mentor. Backing improvement over time...

Okay...but not sure what "already listed" means...

Please, whatever you do during any Swift backing exam, G.O.A.L. and make it very obvious. They will also test you after the 200 hours of mentoring is completed.

Does that mean you're not going now. Or that safety didn't stop it in time. Confused marc

At this point, he's not going. They rescinded their offer.
