    Is anybody familiar with Meltons physical at orientation? If the doctor requests a sleep study is it done there or do they send you home? When I received my current medical card I was close to needing neck was 17 and my BMI was almost 35. I'd rather not go down there just to be sent back home. Thanks for any input

    I'd call them brother.! I'm going to be going in December/or early January I called about a concern I had with my driving record and asked them about it now so I don't waste my time coming and get sent home. They looked into it, told me I was good and to call them next month to get my prehire; for cdl school! So just talk to them! They know your not perfect but let them specifically know you don't want to waste their time and money and they will appreciate your initiative! They thanked me for calling ahead! Call em!
    BigGrumpy Thanks this.

    There was 2 big boys in my orientation 300 lbs + ,
    Another guy was pretty big like 250 .
    Not one was given a sleep apnea test .
    One 300 lb was sent home later in the week for not being able tarp and get on top of loads .
    The other 300 lb made it to the last day and failed out because he couldn't read a map or do a simple route planing . You are not allowed GPS or Internet for the map and route planning test.

    The 250 lb guy made it all the way thru and was the first one to get a trainer .
    BigGrumpy and Maurice_1221 Thank this.
