    I was under the impression the school was not currently running due to our fantastic economy and senior drivers still laid off. why would they train newbee's?

    They have it on their website, hiring in my area. I applied and had an interview, now just waiting for HR to do their process to see IF I am a canidate.TM only had limited info on it and said I would have to sign a 2 yr contract to go through the program.

    I interviewed with them last spring, they said something about going to somewhere in Arkansas (I think that was where it was), for training and orientation, that was just for a "on call" local driver....

    They really seem to have their poop together...

    They are advertising here in Michigan too, its getting into the vacation season so they want floaters to cover the routes and work docks,
