    The recruiter can't answer me honest so I gotta hear from y'all.

    Are they gonna fail me if I can't get it that high, but do my best? Do they lower the shelf for shorter people?

    It's the only thing botherin' me since USX can be ... well, you know...

    We are leaving Saturday for Orientation Monday.. maybe.

    Curious why you think you aren't able to complete the task

    Because I know my shoulders and that's why I team with my husband. He lifts it and doesn't have to do a lick of the paperwork.

    Correct. I can lift a 50# sack of whatever and carry it around, but I am not lifting it up to a 50" high shelf. That's why we team...so I don't have to do that stuff. lol

    50" is only 4' 2" you can do it. Unless you're 4'1"

    I believe the sense of foreboding regarding hiring on with USXpress has just been relieved by a mutual decision to take the leap and bypass the BS by going with Schneider's Percentage Lease program. I only have to lift 30# over my head now. Cake. lol
