    Just finished my 2 1/2 day orientation in Tunnel Hill today. On my way to Kings Mountain, NC to meet my trainer and knock out these 150hrs. So far this has been a GREAT experience and I'm very impressed with the company and I'm not one who's easily impressed. I do wish I could've been paired with a trainer out of the UsX Terminal in Atlanta which is where I live but no biggie. I'm assuming there were no available trainers out of the Atl Terminal. I'm looking forward to hitting the road and I plan on taking my time to learn everything I need to know about trucking. I know it will take a while before I become a confident & comfortable driver but I am patient and I know each day will be easier than the previous one. Well just wanted to share this NEWBIE experience. God Bless!

    Do they want recent grad drivers to team after training?

    recent gred will go out with a trainer for 120 hr's (that's driving time) or about 3 weeks then team with a new driver for 8 weeks then solo if you wish

    ISMITH 124 how did your training and the 8 weeks of team go for you? What is the pay for new grads on teaming?
