I am supposed to start in Marshfield as well! I am not coming from quite as far (I am in GA), but it is still quite a drive. The recruiter said that they would reimburse a hotel stay (up to $64) so that people are able to split it to two days. But that there definitely wasn't any reimbursement for travel to training.

So, if all goes well, I should see you there!

Up to $64, that sounds good! I will definitely not make it from NH in one day :-) Save travels, and see you in Marshfield!

That would be a deal breaker for me. Plenty of companies pay for or provide transportation.

I didn't get my CDL there, but Roehl was the first solo driving job I had in 2016.

It almost was for me. But then I decided that I could either get paid transportation to training or get paid during training. I figure I come out ahead financially this way, and I since I prefer to drive than to have them pay for a bus ticket, this works for me as well.

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.

So after a few more conversations, I think I am good to go to Marshfield, WI this weekend, and start school next Monday. Has anyone stayed at Hotel Marshfield? Do they really have a sauna as their website says?

I will keep an eye out for you, assuming nothing bad happens in the process for me. Had a conversation today, and it appears all is still a go!

Hotel Marshfield it is. I couldn't imagine they would have more than one.

I am enjoying the whole "don't forget your mask" combined with the "You will be sharing a room..." stuff. I understand it, but is just seems like mixed messages, and I can't help but smile at such stuff.

Any idea when you may be rolling in?

I recall someone here mentioned another hotel. Actually, I am surprised that they are putting us in this hotel, would expect something cheaper and simpler, this one has a sauna! Hopefully they will not be too strict on masks, I hate breathing through a mask... I plan to make a stop in Cleveland, it is right in between and only about 600 miles, so most likely I will check in the evening.

My recruiter said that this is a different hotel than they used to use. It is closer to the terminal than they other one, though a little further from town, so going into town takes a little longer. I am also surprised they went with this one given how nice it is, but I definitely am not complaining!

I also hate breathing through a mask. My recruiter said a face covering is required, which could include a bandana, gator neck, or other type of cloth. It sounds like it is fairly strict in that you need something that covers, but not strict in the sense of it being a mask per se.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

We'll see. Maybe they just say it because they must say, who knows. I have a bandana. Safe travels!
