    How long does it take to receive your license after you finish CDL school with all endorsements including Hazmat?

    If you are getting the Hazmat and Tank Vehicle endorsement, after you pass the test you still have to get fingerprinted and go through a background check with the Department of Homeland Security. It takes about 2 weeks after you get fingerprinted to get your license.

    When ever a woman would ask for fill-up while at a station, I would always tell her that "my hose was too big for her hole"!

    That's funny but remember you NEVER know who you are talking to. I once had this guy come up to me at a station where it's the last one out of town and everyone fills up there to go back to CA. He was asking all kinds of questions about the truck and the unloading and I was more than happy to talk because it didn't interfere with my work. Come to find out it was one of the VP's for the company. We stand out when they get to hide.

    Anybody have any opinion on crossovers. Alot of companies frown on the use of these because it is too easy to cross products. I used to love having them on the trailer, but you really have to pay attention when loading, and unloading.

    I think you answered your own question. I perfer a pipe for each compartment and one that does not use the same for loading.

    I get the QT employees sneaking around,or making excuses to take all the trash out while I deliver.
    It doesent bother me,theyre just making sure I got my vapor recovery hooked up,but its still
    funny watching them watch me.

    We have cross overs on our trailers because we don't have tapered tanks.. Sometimes you are limited and have to pull into a station the opposite way because of the way its pitched.. When you make a mistake and cross drop, It's because you were in a rush... Take an extra minute and double check everything.
