Good evening to all. Hope you all are having a great trip where ever you may be. Just wanting to know if I made a right choice. I will be headed to the training academy at FFE Transportation in a couple of weeks. Not sure if made a right choice, not with the company itself but I made a choice in changing recruiters. Meaning when I first applied, I didn't speak with anyone until 2 weeks after and that because I called them. Anyways the recruiter I spoke to the first time seemed somewhat disorganized, she apparently worked out of her home recruiting students. Not to say she doesn't work hard except it was pretty difficult to ask questions when she's distracted on whatever is going on at her home. RED FLAG???? OR NOT???? Any how I spoke to another recruiter and she was the total opposite. She has kept constant contact since first speaking with her, answering any and all question that I have. Did I do the right thing to request a different recruiter??

  • 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.

Honestly recruiters have one purpose a nd one purpose only. To get you in the door. Once you start the chances of dealing with either recruiter ever again is slim to none. Don't worry about it. The first recruiter forgot about you the second her other phone line rang and answered it with "So what are you wearing big boy?"shocked.pngsmile.gif

Got to love people that run home based businesses.

I agree with Guyjax....I steer clear of homebased stuff....they seldom follow thru..as you have found out...You are the commodity...so if you weren't being treated the way you should have, you go on to another....and another...and another..until you find someone who actually does their job. That was a good call, Rene....it doesn't matter who gets you to the door of the school...just that you get there.

I totally agree Rene....switching recruiters won't hurt a thing. Stick with the one you feel most comfortable with.

On a side note, I now feel like a tiny puny human for running a home-based business! I better start calling around to find some office space nearby. I hope my cat, my cows, and my chickens understand.

rofl-3.gif I took no offense. If the worst crime I've committed is finding a way to work from home then I'm confident I'll still make it through the Pearly Gates!

And I pretty much never answer the phone unless I know who it is. But maybe if I did start answering it, "How ya doing big boy?" people would stop calling me!
