This morning I went down to the DMV and passed my CDL written tests. I missed two on the General Knowledge section, missed one on the Air Brakes, aced the Combination stuff and missed three on the HazMat. Cool. When I came home I faxed a copy of my permit to SNI in Green Bay. I then called Dawn and she looked everything over and then told me that it looked good. I am so excited! She gave me the information for training, but said to call back on Thursday afternoon or Friday to get the travel information.
Today is the day for my DOT Physical and drug test. Now that I have my physical out of the way, I can take my CDL permit tests. Maybe Monday. Have a good weekend.
I called my recruiter today and he e-mailed me the information. I printed it out, signed where I needed to, and sent it off overnight mail to them. Now for the next phase of the waiting game.
Still waiting for my “Rated Applicant Packet” in the mail. Talked to my recruiter today and he said that if it is delayed too much, they might push me back a week; so I wouldn’t start until the 10th. It had better be here tomorrow, or I’m going to go crazy waiting.
Called my SNI processor today. She went over my application info once again and is going to start on my driver history, criminal history and employment history. She also has sent me the paperwork and booklets to get started. I’m waiting for the mail now.
Everything has to be signed and on her desk on the 23rd. I’m supposed to call her back then and she will schedule me for the DOT Physical and drug screen. I’m getting nervous about everything working out good. It’s getting closer to reality for me now!!!
Well, I’ve completed my interview with the Schneider recruiter. As of now I am tentatively a Pumpkin Head. I’ve been enrolled in the Feb 3 training class, pending approval of my paperwork and background information. I hope they have more luck with my employer information than CRE apparently is having. I’m supposed to call in tomorrow to find our more. I’ve written CRE off. If they ever call back, they can pound sand.
Received a call from Schneider recruiting department. They went over my application with me and set me up for a Telephone Interview tomorrow afternoon. Hope all goes well! Still no word back from CRE.
Applied with Schneider National today. Hope to hear something back from them. Still have not heard back from C.R. England.
Received a e-mail from the CRE recruiter today. I called and was told that they were having trouble verifying my employment information because no one would respond to their requests for info. I verified the employer information they had and she said they would keep trying.
Received a e-mail from CRE today and called the recruiter who had been assigned to me. She is going to start on my application and let me know how it goes. I sent an e-mail to Willis Shaw Express, asking for more info on their training program. I also applied online with CRST. Don’t know if I’ll hear anything from them though. I’ll let you know if I do.
