    C1 had your DOT physical done. You should be good for a year. Just take your form and card with you. When's your orientation. I just graduated C1 Springfield, Mo and will be headed to orientation soon.

    You'll be a week ahead of me then. I go the following week. Maybe I will see you at a terminal somewhere or pass on the road.

    Thanks to all posting. very helpful. i start C1 in indanapolis on 8/20/12. Cant wait to start cant wait to learn. The pay seems like crap but i had already chucked this first year up as a "learning" year not a paying year lol.

    Drivers that have gone through PAM to get there one year experience then left: What company did you go to and why? Was better milage the deciding factor or more miles or something completely different?

    Left after year and got more pay per mile and more miles and home every week. So get that year experience and find a job that lets you have a partial life.

    From what I gather about PAM is that they are a trainer company. That's who I am signing on with. I start at Future Truckers tomorrow in Asheboro NC.

    jgarner, I start there on the 20th.Thats what I have been reading about PAM. Been also reading alot of bad things about them. I'm hoping that It's not all true, If so It's going to be a long year

    Yea, I have read some bad too. I think its what you make it. I'm a personable guy. Not much bothers me. So I will suck it up and do it. I will try and update on here. But I don't have a laptop. So I may do it from wifi on my phone.
