    God, I hope I don't have to wait that long!! I heard a guy in my center became a driver after only 6months. Not sure if that is true or not. I hope so!

    :thumbup1: I walked in to apply for part time, HR guys looks at me and say's "Do you have a clean driving record" thank god I did. Was hired 3 days later full time driving. I know that is not the usual way it happens, so I feel very fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time.

    Day one driver here. Next door neighbor was the center manager's uncle. I badgered him for 3 years to hire me. He finally did. Went to a two day school and started driving full time the next week. Hit 23 years July 5th.
