    It could take a while unless they have questions of some sort for you. They might be moving a little faster now but it used to be a months long process.

    Doesn't hurt to call them. Might actually show them you're truly interested.

    I applied online Friday evening and got a call Monday afternoon. Took almost four months to get hired after the first call. Hired in at big terminal. Carlisle 042. Good luck to you. Keep calling in to check on application.

    That's exciting. I just got my hazmat endorsement 2 weeks ago and would like to get out my current job as delivery driver unloading food. Similar job job as Sysco and US foods driver. Ive been at this employer for almost two years and is my first trucking after I finished trucking school.

    I remember it being a few weeks from application to background check to orientation to job offer. Maybe 3 or 4.

    Which was a good thing, because the non-union air freight place where I was moonlighting was getting REALLY tired of my mouth and refusing to run illegal. Just in time.
