Dont wait
by: NickV

Dont wait for anyone. If your going to do the time and energy then just go. Honestly with trucking companies getting more and more strict on how they conduct their orientations I hate to say but it doesnt sound good for your buddy.

Some companies are alot more strict than others but no matter what every company will require a medical card and those can be hard to get now days. On top of that some companies are doing ergonomic tests which is a barrage of excercises while they monitor your heart rate.

Then again I have seen some pretty big men pass and some smaller guys fail so its weird. But dont wait for anyone man. Could be waiting on him for a long time and waiting isnt getting you experience and money
