Been a little under the weather since Friday due to food poisoning. The more I age the less seafood agrees with me lol. Just wanted to update. I received a phone call from Witte Bros this AM, and was asked if I would be willing to do a phone interview tomorrow morning, to which I obviously said yes. I'll chime back in tomorrow after the interview. I will get back to those who have posted when I can, just not feeling staring at the screen with the nausea at the moment. TY to everyone who has replied with the plethora of information.

And TY Anne for all of your help and info too smile.gif

Just got off the phone with Darian yes. Very polite and professional individual. We are looking at a Jan start time for me but that could change for something sooner. I just have things I need to get in order for myself before leaving on an endeavor like this. Where I will park the truck, what my landlord wishes to do with the room I rent, wrapping up exams for my current schooling etc. I'm beyond grateful and excited for the opportunity. I will be working on getting my CLP again, and trying to see about getting a copy of my DOT card from my exam from last year as that should be good until March/April of next year and I cannot seem to track it down since my last move last year.

I will say hello to Darian for you next time I speak to him. I like everything I have found researching Witte Bros. and what he had to say about the process, benefits, the culture at the company, relationship with drivers and dispatch etc. Glad I read the book on this website lol, let's you know what certain questions to ask.

Will keep everyone posted, but in my mind I see no reason to look elsewhere. Fingers crossed as 2 months will pass in a flash especially when it's holiday season.

Really happy for you. I felt confident that you would find a home with one of the companies brought to your attention in this thread. It's exciting when someone finds that match and is like, "Nope, no reason to keep looking." In my personal search for a company, I remember Witte Bros was refreshingly honest and straight forward. I am glad that your conversations with Witte Bros have also been positive.

Ryan, It was really refreshing TBH. Can't say the same for some of the other companies I have spoken to in the past. Also Crazy that a company like this wasn't automatically included in the application for paid training. But like I said just grateful for the opportunity ahead and really comfortable with the dealings so far.

Made it down to the local Concentra clinic where I did my physical last year and got a copy of my DOT card which is still valid until March of next year. So next goal is studying for and passing the CLP exam and figuring out where I can park the truck when I come home with it lol.

Gabriel, be mentally prepared for your employer to require a new physical. It's very unusual to get hired under your old physical.

Very valid point sir and I am good with it. I weigh 60 pounds less now than when I took the one last year so it's the last thing I am worried about. My health is in a much better place this year (thankfully) than when I was jumping through hoops last year to get the CLP. I am just glad this one is still valid for the purpose of taking the written. One less hassle. Even my vision got better when I went to the eye doctor a couple of months ago to renew my prescriptions.
