    Thanks! Either would be fine, as I live close to both. Cartersville is only 38 miles further than Eden, so not a big difference in distance.
    My concern at the moment is the availability of positions. Is there a wait list for training? I am literally packed and ready as I have been researching this opportunity for months! I have already acquired my D.O.T. Physical and CLP! Just waiting for a call to secure a training position; so that I can start acquiring the knowledge/skills to become a professional driver! Thanks again for the insight! Sorry for the highjack, and good luck to all!

    You'd be able to get into the next class at either location I'm sure. Call Peggi in the morning and she'll tell you which class starts quicker and has availability. Each location runs 1 class a month but im not sure what rotation Eden or Cartersville is on since most of my students come from Richfield WI school.
     
    HWYSLAVE Thanks this.

    Peggi is real nice! I am in 3rd week in Wisconsin and really liking it. Heading to Georgia to drop off some tires and bumpers today.

    So....Yesterday: Called Peggi left a message, waited till 1600 no return call, called back no answer. I get it they have to be swamped!

    Today: Check e-mail had a message on Driver Pulse stating application declined, messaged the recruiter listed on the app asking to elaborate, she was very cordial and completely professional in letting me know that I could not be considered due from my lack of work history.

    Don't be alarmed every scenario is different so do not refrain from applying because of my scenario! I have been unable to work due from a neck injury received on the job during my 12 year career as a commercial diver. I have had two neck surgeries since and my doctors refused to release me for work.

    I am in much better health now and ready to start a new career. I have already obtained my CLP and my 2 year DOT Medical Card. I have also been working with a friend that is an O/O on pretrip, coupling etc. I will continue to study and hopefully get some seat time. I am going to continue on my own and get my CDL. Hopefully that will put things back towards my favor!

    I will continue to troll here learning as much as possible also! Thanks for your insight and assistance, roll on!

    Are the driver facing cameras really that bad? I drove 4 months OTR last year, looking to get back into it, Millis seems attractive.
