Training in GA for conductor, what do we expect?

I see this question was posted 11 months ago, but maybe I can answer these questions for future conductor trainees. I completed my training yesterday, started with a class of 58 and graduated 55. Two failed the hang test and one just up and left the hotel one night after he decided this was not the job for him...he was 58 years old. About the hang test. Everyone must hang onto a steel ladder constructed exactly like the ladders you will find on railcars. You must hang for approximately 1 min, 15...

WILL CARRIERS EVER FIND A WAY TO ELIMINATE THE NEED OF A BROKER

Carson carriers can eliminate the use of a broker anytime they want and deal directly with the shipper. But does it make sence in most cases to do the tedious work it takes to get a load from a new shipper. Get your MC# and put up 10k for the bond. Spend 10 hours in a truck stop cold calling shippers just to save $200 bucks. Us brokers are really just glorified salesmen. Of course there is much more to this, but this is the basic.

Jobs for people who suffer lower back pain

I've been in the HVAC trade for only 3 years, but during employment at another job about 13 years ago, I ended up hurting my back. Well, now that I'm a little older, it seems to have finally caught up to me for good. I constantly feel a lingering pain in my lower back, and it's only when I stand for long periods of time or am in awkward positions that it really hits me. I've seen to different doctors and they both want me to be a pill popper which I refuse to become. 1. They have little effect o...

If you ask most brokers they'll tell you they don't hire people from freight broker schools or consider them as experience. Here's a good example of things YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW that training progra...
