Thanks Kerry. I will be doing a diary. No time right now but I'm taking notes and will post it all at once when I can. I was trying to see where you were at in another post but guess you didn't see it. Are you back in the states yet??

Anne your turn coming soon. 2022 right?!! I will be following for sure.

Mark O man you ain't the only one. I did a bone head move also today smh. You started with Knight too? If you did what terminal?

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.

I thought I responded? I was in Zambia. I returned to the US on Tuesday. Application process with companies has been moving very quickly. Could be at orientation with a company either the end of the month or the beginning of December.

I am outta Phoenix. I made sure that my trainer needed to have a TON of patience....and he said no problem! He is rethinking just how much a TON is today, yesterday and probably looking ahead. My mistakes are really stupid stuff, but this is all brand spanking new to me. After the lack of common sense yesterday he's agreed to be crystal clear, and I have agreed to do exactly what he says. Foreshadowing - "check the back and make sure it's clean" when picking up an empty does NOT mean that the doors are clean......

I hear the Phoenix terminal is top notch! Same here Mark, this is brand spanking new to me. You got this, I'm asking a lot of questions too. Told him I'm here to learn. My trainer is using trucker language and I'm like huh? What's that mean lol. Good luck with training. Are you out for 4 weeks also? And when did you do orientation? I did mine Nov 1 thru 3rd. Funny, maybe we were in the same zoom meeting together.

I met my wife, got married, had a honeymoon, and now have a child on the way. It was alright. ;)

Going through the final processes of applying with the 9 companies that are still willing to consider me. Nothing is final yet, as in no formal offers to attend orientation. Things will rounding out the first half of this coming week. I will be posting an update on my own thread, once all applications have been fully processed.

If you still want to be tanker yanker, you're in a perfect area for that division. I tried to go tanker but Prime said no cause I live in Florida. That was almost 4 yrs ago so I don't know if that policy for tanker changed.

exactly what he says. Foreshadowing - "check the back and make sure it's clean" when picking up an empty does NOT mean that the doors are clean......

A little pro tip Mark, always, always, always make sure to check an empty to see that it is indeed empty before pulling it. Even better if you can check it before you hook it.

No matter who tells you it is empty because you are responsible for it if it isn't empty. People make mistakes, especially if they have a lot of trailers. better to pop the door open and confirm rather than get down the road and find out it has something in it.

I found two really nice brand new area rugs in an empty the other day. The previous driver was too lazy to open up and clean out the trailer. Its a pet peeve of mine.
