weeding out begin) they will start going over your paperwork but before that you will pay your admin fee of $50.00 then you will start on the physical part of the process then people start going home they will pick some people out (randomly) for hair drug test the ones that fail the urine and hair test go home ( now I dont understand why someone would come that far knowing that they will fail the urine test they tell you that you have to take one good thing you dont want someone that dumb driving then you are broken up into two groups (SC no CDL and SR with CDL) around the third day urine test are back so more go home (just watch the Shell station every day when the greyhound arrived then you have some classes before you start driving I had a great instructor learned a lot from him and what I seen they all seems to care after I graduated it didnt take long for me to get with a instructed for my phase 1 the only thing is that keep fluctuating how many miles one must do from 14000 to 12000 to 16000 now here is something that truly suck you are driving and making them ( the company and trainer money) but when its time for the trainer to go home you need to live out of the truck instead of putting you up in a motel you get paid $61.43 per day but drive 10/11 hrs. a day that less than minimum wage do the math say cpm cents per mile (35 cpm x 500=175.00 x 6 = $1050.00 your $430 which is split between the trainer and
the company = $620.00 for the trainer) now if you are lucky (If thats what it is) you will do your time at the CA. yard. One shower for all the men one for the few women you wash up in the bathroom (hope no one taking a dump) that smells up the whole place. Then there is no place near to get something to eat except the farmer brother about mile round trip then the roach wagon when it comes they have a NO IDLE policy so you need to sleep in the truck with the windows down for air. like thats going to happen.
Just finished phase 2 had a good instructor again better than some people Ive heard of (getting left behind put off the truck at truck stops) heard some horror stories about trying to be a company driver in Salt Lake City they have you waiting around for weeks telling you this and that until you cant afford to sit then they lease you a truck and you get on the road right away guess that will be the same at Burns Harbor also I will say that Im a little worried it seems as if you are told to report to one person then another then another for the same thing because they keep switching you around without your
knowledge which can be annoying like they dont have a clue or this is theyll first time doing it
Well Im still here got lucky (if thats what you want to call it) got a company route and things are somewhat different sometime I think that they are setting you up to fail they will violate you for something 10 times and you ask what are they for and you get no answer for the violation or a very generic one then sometimes you ask a question and get a smart as_ answer ( guess they are related to the England family) instead of working on keeping drivers its like they prefer to lose them and have the government keep paying for the training (guess thats where the money is) one would think that Uncle Sam would be looking into that but there is another story - maybe thats how they got the motto (E every N new G guy/girl L last/leave A around N ninety - D days) - well this is the second weekend that I had to spend at a truck stop I think my DM dont know the difference between a bowling pin and a king pin
