    But don't they do a background check before you go to orientation?

    If I had 4 on a road test, two are going to fail because one insists on backing (Showboating) at full speed and the other does not listen to instructions from tester. Poof. Gone.

    When a company stuffs a orientation with 50 people, they can choose 20 and toss the rest.

    Not much, if any. This is what they think of their drivers and potential drivers. They wait to see if you show up to orientation first. Many folks just don't show up for their orientation.In other words they will inconvenience the hell out of you, but unless they are forced to make a few phone calls, they won't bother to.

    Watkins does actually do most of the background checks before they send you a bus ticket. They do a drug test and company physical when you get there. If you can't pass your gone. And Watkins also only takes 6-8 at a time to orientation. At least in conover it's that way.
    x1Heavy Thanks this.
