    Congratulations.
    How long did it take them to call you after you submitted your application?

    buster123, they called 3-4 weeks after I did the app. on line, then another 2-3 weeks after face to face interview for background check.
    serta, my wife is still up in New England and kids are going to college so I don't see them much now-so no big deal. Spent 19 years on the road in carhaul so not much changes-always on the road. We get along better when not in each others faces all the time:-)

    Waysho, I gotta be there to do the operations orientation at 1500 hrs. I did the physical, road test and safety orientation last week. I am working out a notice, and I would think I would start somewhere around the 8th. Who knows. See ya around there.

    Once you are hired and are near the shop in ATL on the 3rd shift (11:00-7:00) stop in and say hello, just ask for "Dugan" and everyone will know who you are talking about.

    Congrats on the hire
