    Wow !
    In a week this guy goes from unemployed to got a Sprinter, screw the Sprinter, to I'll be at Load 1in a few days.
    To OP, congratulations.
    Is Load 1 as hard to get into as the current version of Fedex ?

    They have the regular background check D.O.T. physical drug test stuff and employment verification. No they’re not too hard to get into AND I’m not unemployed lol I’m working up until the day I leave. Also the reason I changed from the sprinter to Load1 was because I’d much rather be in a truck with a sleeper and I like driving truck but couldn’t find one 26,000 or below but finally did with Load1. The recruiter I worked with was great too her name is Ann, also got a pretty cool fleet owner as well so it all worked out pretty good. Thank you to all of you who have helped me and given me information and insight, I really appreciate it, in today’s world not many people offer to help others unless they’re getting something out of it.

    Nobody helps unless they're getting something out of it ?

    You must not have read the fine print.

    How do you think some of these guys can afford to keep expediting ?

    Yeah I know you were joking sorry haven't had much time to post had a busy few days had to get packed, now I'm spending time with my wife before we go pick up the rentAL and head to Michigan. Moot your welcome I always have believed in saying thanks when deserved and it's true not alot of people help others just to do it. Anyway I'm gonna get up and get ready and get this trip to Michigan for orientation knocked out. You guys have yourselves a good day and I should be in the truck Wednesday afternoon!

    Amazing determination!
    I think for new person in expediting you did good job at signing with a company.
    That's the best way to learn and to eventually succeed.
    Hope everyone wanting to get into this business learns from this guy endeavor and follow everything to the latter on how he did it.

    "Amazing Grace, half-decent rates..."

    Thank you but in all honesty I just talked to people and researched as much as I possibly could that's the best I can tell anyone and expediters online DEFINITELY gave me a HUGE insight I still go and read just random forums and learn all kinds of stuff... Was supposed to leave today but the truck needed reinspected and ended up needing a few things and Load1 actually got me a room for an extra night. I was surprised they put me up in a hotel for two nights for orientation to begin with then turn around and paid for another night because the truck needed a few things when technically they could've said oh well sleep in the truck
