    make sure you can get a hold of him because i just got off the phone with him and i was moved to a different day so you might want to get a hold of him to see if you got moved too

    As of right now I am going to just ride it out and see what the recruiter says tomorrow. That is if I can get a hold of him. Things for me are not doing so good. I am tapped out of money. I have been out of work for 3 months now. I need this job. I guess I will have to ride it out like I said and hope for the best. I will post again tomorrow. Night everyone.

    Good morning everyone. Wolfman here aka real name is Joel. I really couldn't sleep last night. I was a little on the mad side to where I was going to switch companies. I took a note book out after I got off the internet and wrote down the pro's and con's of switching jobs right now. My con's that I wrote down beat me to the punch. I could take the bus to Chattanoga, TN and go back to working for Covenant Transport. I gave it a good thaught. I am going to wait this time out and see if things look better next week. I just feel like I am getting pushed around by the recruiter. Then I figured that he is really busy with all the applications that are coming in. I heard this morning from a class mate that alot of these trucking companies are getting around 1000 applications a day. I look at it this way, when the time comes for me to depart from Eagan, MN I will then feel alot better knowing that I might have a job. The reason I say might is we are not hired until we are done with Orientation and we receive our commdata card with $350.00 on it. Most cases there are just a few people that don't make it through. The majority do make it. I am going to call the recruiter today and see if I can get a hold of him and find out what's going on. Then I will feel better about things. So, take care for now and Keep the rubber side down and drive safe.

    Nope, I am still here in Bloomington, MN. Me and the other guy that went through driving school are going to meet up Monday morning sometime and give him a call to see what is going on. If we don't hear anything from the recruiter by Wednesday, we are thinking about working for another company. I can't be unemployed for much longer. I have bills to pay. I tell you right now, they are piling up. Just getting a little worried right now. How about you Chevy 338? Did you head out there to Eagan, MN to see what is going on Sunday morning?

    no i did not i got a hold of the guy on Thursday and now i am going out on the 2 for sure he is going to call me on Wednesday to talk to me and if he does not call i am going to call him i now have is direct number so i can call him striate be its like you said they are getting a lot of apps because of the hard time and every thing but if this does not work out i kinda have a back up i have been towing for over 10 years and when i tell a towing outfit that i will most likely have a job but i needed a change towing can not get you any where.

    so did you even go there and if so what did they tell you when you got there?
