    So, does anyone know what their actual physical is like? Do they have a company physical where you do a performance test? Do they make you do sleep apnea test?

    I totally feel you on this, trust me i do. But if they truly agreed to cover all those costs for the OP especially if its in writing i feel like he has the right to be pissed off. I know i would be, considering how much i like to plan out any and EVERYTHING i can before i execute

    I have a feeling that the OP knew that he had some sort of medical condition and that he would not pass a physical.

    I'm guessing you don't know this driver from Adam hisself. But you think he needs to lose weight? Crystal ball? Came to you in a dream? Writing on the bathroom wall?

    Which was it?

    Being a "big guy" doesn't automatically mean overweight.

    One look at this guy apparently caused his medical fitness to come into question and they decided that he need to go to a DOT physical.. something tells me that this guy wasn't built like Schwarzenegger..
     
    bzinger and TB John Thank this.

    Understood. But I 'm not going to tell someone I've never seen or met to "just lose weight", like that will solve all his problems. To me, anyway, if Heyl said they would take his current card, then came up with 26 reasons they now can't, it's on them. And then backpeddaling on the pay for a ride there, etc, just reinforces the idea that it's on Heyl.

    Not necessarily.. all this could have been avoided by the driver taking and passing a DOT physical. The driver was in control of the whole situation and then decided to bail out... instead of taking a FREE DOT physical.

    Gotta disagree with you on this one @Lonesome. If he doesn't take the physical to be qualify to become an employee, going home costs should be on him IMHO.
