    Hello fellow truckers,
    today I was invited/hired to attend orientation this coming Mon in Tacoma, Wa. & was wondering if anyone can clue me in on what to currently expect at orientation?..ie:
    road test? float gears or double clutch expected?
    what about lodging...is it single or shared with another person?

    signing up out of Calif for West 11 Reefer division...am told mainly I-5 corridor but other main areas traveled to?
    truck stops not allowed to stop at??

    Appreciate any info,
    Thank you!

    Not bad...standard stuff like drug test, road test & paperwork one normally goes thru with most orientations, everyone was friendly & helpful.
    Tacoma terminal nice & clean plus has full kitchen cafe.

    Nice.. thanks for the reply. Are you on the road now? How are the trucks? You getting the miles they claim?

    I'm from South Eastern Washington and I see their truck at simplot and FreshPak all the time.
