    Good luck. Keep ears open, mouth shut except to ask questions, and you should do just fine. Do not go into the motel bar or walk across the street to the mall bar. If caught, you'll be sent home. Rooms are all non smoking, so don't do that in the rooms either or you'll be sent home. Be on time!!!!! If you can't make the bus on time, guess what??? Home you go. Pack as lite as you can but still take enough stuff to survive. You'll have the chance to do laundry while out. When with a trainer, make sure he actually trains you!!! Ask questions. Practice backing, do all the QC msg's, pay all the lumpers, learn and use the forms!!!

    One of the forms you'll learn is requesting lumper approval. Input the info, they'll send you the po# and they'll put the money on your comdata card, then you'll write and register a comcheck to pay the lumpers, scales, and anything else with.

    If you've got a valid physical and are able to do the job, you should have no problem. When I first came on, even if you did have a card, you had to go in for another physical.... on their dime. Just another way to show that bean counters are now in control.
