So I called the recruiters but they said that I would need 6 months of work with another carrier before they hire me again. Ughh. I am praying that Travis will say yes. I pleaded with him a lot on this. If not my job is find a truck job.

Wow Man...I am really sorry to hear that. I think your plan to revisit Swift is a very good one. Good luck !

Things can change rather quickly Hobo. Here is Victor’s latest update:

Glad to see things are going well for him. However, the reason I ask was his stated confusion as to why PAM rescinded his job offer. I knew guys who had their offers pulled, 3 in CDL school, 1 had his pulled during his training phase and one actually had his pulled during orientation. They all knew why the offer was pulled although not all of them wished to disclose the reason. I was curious as to why the company pulled offers and I asked my FM when I had a face to face with him. I don't know Victor or his circumstances so I won't engage in conjecture here but I think it's important for people reading this in the future who may be considering PAM that they don't usually pull offers for no reason and they will tell you why the offer was pulled.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Fm:

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.

In June, I will start training with PAM. I just read that sometimes job offers are pulled. This makes me very nervous, as I have never driven an 18-wheeler before. Also, I do not drive manual transmission. Should I be worried? Tina
