Josh What school are you attending? And do you have any idea why the trainers were let go. I have read a few recent horror stories about trainers. Maybe they are reading TT as well and getting alot of pushback. Good to see that they are cracking down on them. My belief is that the trainers are the ones who set the standard for the company and safety is the one to enforce that standard. Hope you do not have to wait too long for a trainer. Good luck to you. I start with prime on the 5th

Uhh thats not a good sign. I'm headed there in January. Josh keep us posted please. I read alot of good reviews about them and they were honorable mention or something like that last year for the top 20 companies to work for. We just need to keep a positive attitude and do everything we can with our instructors to maximize our learning. If its one thing I've learned in the military is being patient and absorb everything they teach you. someday it could save your life. Also don't go in this with a closed mind. I have every intention of making this a success for me and someday soon setting the example for the newbies that come behind us. Good luck to all of you and have a great Christmas.

Oh no this has been a incredible company so far and they do not tolerate bad trainers (as you can see) it just shows how important it is to interview any potential trainers before going on the road with them.

Got it. Cleaning house sometimes keeps the rest inline as well. Its a shame this happens but even the best are sometimes not good at training. When i was in the military i forced myself to complete a tour as an instructor. I had alot fear standing up in front people and teaching them what i knew and the subject matter i was assigned. The training for becoming an instructor was exactly what i needed to overcome my fears and teach. In the end it was probably my most rewarding part of my military career. Good luck to you. Keep us updated when you can on your training.

I was in Springfield for hours a couple days ago. Gave you all a shout out and still didn't get any messages to meet up. That was your chance, you just didn't know it. (Wink)

I wasn't allowed at the millennium building yet :(

I never went in there haha. I parked out front, right at those parking spots as you enter the terminal through the gate. You could see my truck from the pad.

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
