    Contractual language of different regions allows different amounts of probation time. For instance, the western supplement, article 4.1a gives the company an additional 10 days (40 total) for anyone hired into the package car classification.

    Whats your date of hire? Month and date.
    Do you have 30 working days or just 30 calendar days?

    Ask a fellow driver for the H&W phone number for your area. Call them and ask. They will have the most accurate answer.

    The answer is no.
    Nobody here can tell you with any degree of certainty, despite the plethora of answers you will receive.
    Barnyard gave you the best answer by far.

    I agree with the 12mth rule.
    That's the same in Canada, too (they must have gotten that from the US, because Canadian companies are normally 90 days).

    If you got all the answers then why you asking....

    When you get close to becoming eligible for health insurance they will send you a package in the mail. You got about 11 months to go.

    Good for you. I think we all learned something from this even though most of us are too proud to acknowledge it. Its not spelled out anywhere in the contract so how would anyone know.
