    First reading was 170/94, second was 160/94. Got on some meds and I gotta get 3 good readings at 3 different dates and they will give me my health card. Just had my first reading a couple of days ago and it was good so its just a waiting game now.

    Yeah 140/90 max. I'm already below that now. Got another reading next week and the final one the week after. Then I will get my card so I can take my permit test

    Hopefully I will be starting July 10th. Got my health card and passed the permit test but now I gotta get a certified birth certificate from the courthouse. The one I had was from the hospital (which is the only one I had) and the DMV said I needed an official one from the state. After I get that, I will get my permit and my recruiter said once I get that, I'm hired and can get started

    July 10th should be durring my last week! I am here now, If you have any questions just let me know. Its pretty intimidating at first if you never double clutched or drove with a 53 foot trailer but stick to it, everything gets easier.

    Was everything your recruiter told you truthful or were there things that you weren't quite prepared for? Like expenses, etc.

    You get a meal 5 days a week for lunch which is pretty decent size and I dont even eat dinner each day (maybe small snacks) and the hotel breakfast buffet is decent size and opens between 6 and 615 most days. (its posted 6:30) which is available 7 days a week. You will get paid Thursday of the third week.. some people had issues with this but its posted in the website as well. At the hotel you will have a roommate but if its anything like mine you will make a friend and get along well. The Tech school is close to the hotel which you will be at 5 days a week and saturday for a half a day you will go to the Roehl terminal. There is a lot within walking distance to the hotel which includes Fox valley mall (big) walmart, groceries, fun, etc..
    I dont know what your recruiter told you but mine was honest with me and I havnt had any issues. The company treats us great and entering the program just remember many of us come in with no experience and just have fun with your instructor and group your assigned too but be professional at the same time. Things get easier after the first week.
     
    Natew48 Thanks this.

    I brought 0$ and my car and I am doing fine. I do hear (not 100% sure) that at the terminal you have free laundry
