Yeah I forgot to mention that. I if I remember right hire right sends you an email soon after, and than you pick location and time.

I'd say decent chance unless something comes up. After back ground they send you for drug screen.

Thanks Bobcat! I actually sent in my app when you mentioned having less than a year experience shouldn't hold me back!

Yeah they’ll give you locations of where you can the test done and than you schedule an appointment. But you have I think three or four days to get it done. How I worked for me anyways.

That was one of the things I was wondering. Being on the road right now, it's hard to tell where you'll be the next day.

Well with OD being nation wide. I’m sure there are places you could get the drug test done at all over. You might be able to find a place big enough for truck parking. If they decide to hire you I’m sure they will do their best to accommodate you.

You won't be the first OTR driver they've hired I'm sure they will help you out some.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Hey Bobcat, does OD have auto transmission trucks? I'm willing to train and learn in a 10 speed if needed though

They have 10 speeds. You don’t have the automatic only restriction on your license right?
