    Day 1:
    Well The first day you go in starts at 7:30am. Then once everyone is there you do a little paper work. Then you are driven to a Clinic where you take a DRUG TEST & DOT physcial you are here into noon. They come pick you up. They take you back to the building and they give you GREAT FOOD!! First day we had Steak and fries. Then your watching movies and doing more paper work. You get a paper they call homework. If somthing is wrong or missing on your App they will give u this paper and tell you to fix it. DO NOT LIE ON ANY PART OF THE APP THEY WILL FIND IT. Be ready they need 7years of your last addresses & county's. We get done around 5:30pm at that point if you drove you go home. If your staying at hotel you get on shuttle and go back to hotel. If you want your paychecks to get into bank YOU NEED TO HAVE A VOID CHECK! the numbers will not work.

    Day 2:
    More paper work finish up your home work. Then they will do more videos and Road test & backing test. Very easy test they drive ALL AUTO's! no sticks. Then when your done you go back More speakers,Paper work,Videos. For lunch we had quarter pound bugers! VERY GOOD FOOD!!! Later in day you will go out and you will do a inspection of truck & trailer and show you how to work a refeer unit! Trucks do 70mph they are on e-logs.

    Day 3:
    Today is your LAST DAY!!! YAY! if you made it this far you more then likly gonna get hired! Today we did Lots of videos Class test(answer as group). More paper work(always Fun). More people come in a talk Very usefuly info. They make it clear all week they will not FALSE ANY INFO! They are very strick on this cuz of past fines they had. You get GREAT Lunch again! You will meet your FM(Dispatch) today. Get your medical card,comdata,ID card.

    I will be getting my truck friday. Part of this was my choice to get some stuff done at home before i leave and get a 34 hour restart. The benfits are REALLY GREAT HERE! Very cheap for 1 person and even your family 12bucks for 1person 35bucks for family(i think its 35-40) I will try to keep this update the best i can.
