    They asked me if I can pay for my Uber to the bus station and that they will reimburse me .... I quickly said "sure" to not make my recruiter's job any harder or go against her ...didnt realize it's gonna cost me $60 ...can I trust them to reimburse me ?

    HAve a family member drive you down.

    Airport or bus etc someone in the family would transport me there with my own gas and car and drive it back to store it until I am kicked out or hired. If hired I show up with the big truck and throw the stuff into it before too long. Easy.

    Flying is the best way if you can get them to pay for it. Greyhound is not something you want to put up with these days. Especially if you get trapped on a local bus stopping in every tiny little place for three days... and nights.

    Your question been answered. One person said to save the receipt. I said never trust a recruiter....

    Sounds like you have no options other than to hope you get reimbursed. Other than that good luck. I say you got 50/50 chance on getting it back. 99% chance it will if you do get it be weeks or 2 or longer. and 50/50 chance of it being the full amount you paid. Good luck on it...

    $60 isn't much to worrie about anyways. What that like 100 miles? 1.5 hrs of driving to earn it?

    Well than you probably should of explained that to the recruiter and ask if they could pay for the uber upfront with a com check. If I was you I'd explain my situation. There also food shelf you can go to....
