I do have to ask, why sit close to the door?
Should a take a pen and notebook during orientation?
sitting close to door, the instructor hangs out by door coming in and out alot. less chance to fall asleep cause 1st week is nothing but videos and its boring as heck! also they dont walk up and down the aisle to talk... you can hear better.

So there is a chance to get FT status? That is great to hear. I was afraid it would only be tpt for the 119 days
no there is an excellent chance everyone getting hired will go FT. Casting plant takes very few people. out of 60 People last week, 15 went to CASTING plant. Others went to various tranny plants. They keep casting plant new hires to minimums, less chance of getting laid off as well. New lines going in ALL plants so dont be afraid of going to any of them.

Thank you, very good tips! My drivers license has old address so I may as well get it switched while I am waiting. Do I need my birth certificate too?
Work boots or are oil resistant tennis shoes okay? If it's boots that's fine, but I've heard both.
Thanks again
yes you need original birth certificate, FROM COURT HOUSE with the SEAL on it. Driver License ... get copys of BOTH. Wear leather upper work boots SLIP RESISTANCE, no steel toes required. Redwings Wolverine styles are great. Be sure to get Dr Scholls gel pads inserted too. Bring a black or blue ink pen. For the 1st 2 weeks at CASTING PLANT ONLY, you will wear long sleeve shirts. MUST ! until you are fitted for uniforms.

So even if i go to transmission plant there is chance of getting ft? Sorry just worried that anything will only be the 119days then out of a job. I will work my ass off and do plan to save money back since its always a possibility of getting laid off. Just hopeful for ft at some point so it's not just a temp position.

yes very good chance of FT. your willingness and attitude will help in the eyes of getting FT as a TPT. Accept every hour they give you. The reports say they are at 2MM trannys for this year. 2015 reports want 4MM trannys. So the business is there, they just need people to build them. They are putting in new machines now for the 8 and 9 speed transmissions. So work now.... save at least a paycheck a month for the " up and down times" down the road. If you have had phone interview and drug and physical test... its just a matter of time. Check emails daily.

What time was your phone interview tues? I got my still in consideration email after the phone interview but that's it so far. Nothing about verifying my education. Don't know if that's a good/bad thing! Trying so hard not to obsessively check my email and cc :) keep me updated!

Yes. They sent both emails (about 6 hours apart) & was able to go to both in the same day (two different places though). Passed physical. Drug test takes about a week for results.
