    And by strict I mean about stopping for showers and anything else. He seemed to get upset when I asked him about the showers after the end of day 3 without a shower. I guess he was just mad because earlier he said he would take care of the shower situation and he gets a little touchy when I ask him about them. Also he said most drivers don't do the pretrip inspection every time, that it's more like every few days. So I am just a little concerned about the way he does things sometimes. Like when I wake up in the morning he does not want me to open the sleeper and bug him until he wakes me up because he is in his zone and does not want anyone to bother him. Just small things like that are a little annoying, but hopefully everything will be much better and different in one month from now.

    Anyone tell me what the hazmat test was like on day 2 of orientation? Also when do they look at the background check. I talked to the recruiter and even emailed her a copy of my oofficial background but there is one thing there that concerns me but she assures me that it is ok. So when can I relax because they have pushed it through?

    I already had hazmat before I got there, but I think you go to the dmv to take the hazmat test not positive though. On day 2 of orientation they took us to Pomona for the road test which was short and sweet, just around the block. On day four we were pretty much confident we were in they were just finishing up the employment verifications. You can look up the dmv tests online I found a couple that helped me study a while back.

    No I think we have to take a test at the actual orientation. Maybe it wasn't all hazmat but it's something we will be tested on tomorrow she said. This is the Chattanooga terminal so maybe it is different

    You're not tested on anything.. only test during orientation is that joke of a road test. If you make it through tomorrow's classes you're pretty much home free.

    Yea I passed the road. Physical. Drug. And agility. Really don't see what could go wrong other than my background. Which as I stated I literally sent my recruiter my actual state issued background in which she said she sent to her higher ups and was OKd. So surely that won't mess me up but I wouldn't be suprised.

    If you haven't been convicted of any crimes you have nothing at all to worry about. Just go through the motions until they activate you. Should be Wednesday afternoon but sometimes it might be Thursday. I'ma Cummins just so you know. Its 4 cents to the Truck. You split that. So it is .02 cents per mile that go towards your Christmas Bonus.

    Sounds like you have a ###### trainer. Is he actually teaching you anything. If situation doesn't improve message or call your fleet manager.
