If you are applying for a driver position it will take between 1 to 3 months. You must have a high school diploma or the equivalent.

Report answer

It took me a month and a week and at the end did not get the job due to "neglecting to disclose a speeding ticket" I got the ticket 3 years ago. I also went to the DMV and pulled my driving record, the ticket did not show on their report. So if you are looking to work for this company make sure you tell them everything cause they will find it and decline your application if you did not mention it in the application process.
Also, not sure what job these people applied for but it is more involved than what they make it out to be. Phone interview, person to person interview, drug screen, physical (DOT), job reference checks, background and credit check. A month at a minimum if you are applying for a route driver position.
