    How hard is the agility test? Do you have to lift a ton of weight over your head while they monitor your blood pressure?

    For me it was a nightmare. But I have COPD. The hardest part for me was winding the simulated landing gear at 90 RPMs for 30 seconds twice. I also have arthritis pretty severe in my lower back which has been greatly aggravated when I was in a wreck in 2014. Stacking the 10 pallets I only got 6 of them. So in essence I failed. But they obviously didn't care cuz they hired me anyway. For someone who doesn't have a bad back or breathing problems such as myself I don't think it would be much of a big deal at all. They don't take your heart rate just the blood pressure before you start. Which I have naturally high blood pressure anyway

    I wonder what they are looking for then? I used to do food service delivery. That was like 3 years ago and I’m not in the greatest shape now as I used to be. That’s what happens when you sit and drive the majority of the day.

    I have wondered myself why they do it. But I know I didn't pass. The worst thing is we don't do any of that on the job as far as having to Winding landing gear at 90 RPMs or stacking pallets. To me it's a little stupid but I'm sure they do it for insurance reasons or something like that. But I doubt you would have much problem with it.

    Averaging about 2800. Had a slack week last week because a receiver held me up for two and a half days. Only about 1800 that week. Thankfully that doesn't happen very often.

    Holy crap, I hope was at least in an area with something to do. Two and a half days, that's unreal.

    Yeah as long as your own time. Anything over 2 hours. Luckily is something I don't get very often.
