No i mean license. If you dont have a license make you at the very least you have a permit. A license will make you get on the job a lot quickier. It means you dont need training and more likely to get in a class quick.

Was at orientation today, 50 of the 50 called did show up. Some were there with really low list #s one in the 300's and a few more in the 400's they must have declined the job in the earlier rounds of hiring.

We were told they are a go to hire 300 right now, but that might change to add another 50. Three classes with start dates of Sept 12th, Oct 11th & Nov 14th. Medicals were for Aug 5th and Aug 8th. Interesting that there will be no x-rays in this round of medicals for people that took the x-rays in November last year.

Hope this info helps.

Good luck.

Well for me it was like this. They wont give you a cdl class without one. So if you dont have a permit the day of orientation you wont get in a class. Once you get a permit you call up the number they give you and they will put you in a class.

Hey they said they might hire another 50?

Must have permit. Nice no x-rays. That was the most miserable part of the first two medicals.
