Hey bob. Was just looking at od jobs online and I signed in to check status on my applications out of curiosity. They now say on two of them (they didn’t before) say under review. Before was just app submitted. Last I called them they said they want more experience. Should I call back and try again now that they have seen my app?

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Yeah I would you really don't have anything to lose they posted the driver training ad again I think so maybe they are open to new drivers now.

If can work it in tell them you have a buddy who does LH out of Chicago West and highly recommends OD.

Never heard of Oak harbor since they are not out here, but they look like a good place from what I see.
