    mainly because I didn't tell you want you wanted to hear. But Jesus, orientation is two days, with an additional day if you need flatbed training , that have 2 classes a week, ,Monday and Wednesday. That covers orientation.

    Same stuff as any other orientation. Whiz quiz, then while they wait on the results, you get to learn all about the "Mercer Way": Safety discussion, Hazmat, what you gotta do to get loads and get paid. You get fed. Sign all the paperwork. Meet your coordinator. Get your truck inspected and fixed if there are issues. Get your decals on. When all the boxes are checked...get a load and get outta Dodge.

    No, but since they do have Hazmat loads, everyone gets the video.

    The hazmat for the most part is roofing adhesive

    I see many flatbed empty at Ontario California TA, talked to some of them and they say "no loads". Many are Mercer.
    Are you guys finding it difficult to find loads out of LA area? and Southern Cal?

    If you want to go out to cali, reload right back east you are gonna sit a couple days or pull cheap. If you are willing to run for a couple days out on the west coast before going back east, you won't sit and will make decent money to fabulous money.
