As many of you know, I wish to work for Prime, Inc.

I am attempting to verify my work history dates, and when I call the corporate office for Aeropostale, the guy who handles that kind of stuff tells me, we use a third party website for that, we do not have access to it here in the office. So he gave me the website. This website does not have a phone number, so in order to verify the dates Prime, Inc. would have to log in to this website as a verifier in order to verify this particular job.

Talk about nuts!! Right?

Will this be an issue?

I actually had this same issue. I used to work at Abercrombie & Fitch. They directed me to a website that was no help at all. I called back and and told them that I was just trying to verify dates of employment for my own personal records. I think I asked to speak with someone in Human Resources. They were able to give me the info I needed and they should be able to do the same for you. I would suggest calling again and see if it works. Let them know you don't have access to the website and you are not an employer but an employee verifying your own personal records.

I did, he directed me to the website again. My employment history for two positions are there... Now I am having an issue to get my other places of employment to answer the phone. I have been calling and leaving messages everyday for a week. NOTHING! NADA! Aeropostale verification made it easy for one of them to be verified in my personal records because I started the same day that I resigned and then left December 31st. 2012 and start again to take care of my grand father then started at the same company 5/2013 - 9/13, then left to go to school and worked part-time elsewhere 9/13 - 12/13 finished school/ and continued to care for my grandfather as a paid 1099 contract family caregiver. Then the report showed a job that I worked at for 2 months that I forgot about because it was just a side gig while taking care of him. <---I thought this job was under the table so I wasn't going to put it in.

Man my employment history is crappppy looking.

But, they were all dead-end....

Can you produce any pay stubs or tax forms to show?

I can. I could call them as well and have new pay stubs sent out too. maybe just get one from January and one from march and oh look same company paid me lol. I also have a 1099-misc that shows the full amount I made last year.

I'd check to see if they pays stubs will work with Prime. Show them all of them though so that it shows you were consistently working. Since I was paid as an independent contractor for the last 9 months, I've already printed out all my weekly statements to show.

I am wondering about upgrading from CDL B to CDL A. I am in Tukwila WA, it's a huge decision, I know I do not want to attend Swift, however, is there a school that some of you recommend? Also, I just found out I can go to South East Campus college to get. Any thoughts and all opinions are welcome

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.

Might be best to start your own thread (or maybe Brett or a Mod can move this one).
