Just an update,

I talked to my recruiter, Gus, at TMC this morning and told him that I got my CDL hard copy in the mail yesterday. He confirmed my moving date again to SC and told me to give him a call on June 24th so he can set me up with my bus ticket and hotel reservations for the weekend of June 29th. I will be staring orientation July 1st. The only thing I am not looking forward to is the 34 hour bus ride with 4 stops.

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.

Well,

Things did not turned out the way that I had planned but they are still on track. My wife, daughter and I were half way down to SC and we ended up having to turn around and moved in with my mother-in-law in Ellerslie, MD. I called TMC Monday and they told me that my move wasn't a problem. I have to call Gus back on Thursday for my 8 digit confirmation number for my bus ticket and I will be taking a bus out of Frederick, MD on Saturday at 8:50 p.m. and arriving at Des Moines, IA on Sunday at 5:50 p.m. I guess everything worked out. My mother-in-law's husband has lived here his whole life so he knows everyone in this little town. He made a few calls and he got me permission to park my truck behind the local post office. The gravel lot there is owned by the fire department. So, I am all set and am beyond excited to go to orientation.

Understanding Pre-Hires

Apply For Truck Driving Jobs

Pre-hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

wait, WHATTT????

Dawn Busick? she is mine as well. I haven't spoken with her in a week or so, though, so will definitely have to inquire about this.

However, I did notice, as my wife and I drove through their drop yard / maintenance area, in Gaston, SC when we went to go by the load securement training area, on my google maps GPS, there was a new entry that said TMC SCHOOL. (It wasn't there when I punched it up a week or so ago, just to see how close it was to me.) But I figured that this was because of the training they do there. hmmmmm

I spoke with Dawn about the TMC School today (January 12, 2016), and she told me that it is there for its Apprenticeship Program, and all "Apprentices" who attend there must have already obtained a CDL-A. It will be interesting to hear what others learn about TMC's "training" program.

Hello i am also working with dawn. About the cdl program. I start class jan 25th at tmc to obtain my cdl. Its a 3 week program. The cdl class and orientation is all compressed in that 3 week class. I have to commit to tmc for 12 months which is no problem as i plan on working there for a while.
