    They will assign you a trainer on the Friday of the 6 day orientation/training in Scottsburg, IN. If you do have to wait for a trainer, it will be a week at the most and they will pay you $350 while you are waiting. TA is a great starter company. I have enjoyed it so far.

    Thank you for the information that you posted. I will be going through the same thing there in Scottsburg, IN on February 23, 2009. I take it, As long as you pay attention, everyone should pass orientation. Thank you again.
