New job, one day training. Don't feel comfortable.

by Jrouillier

I just got hired after getting my cdl class a. They gave me one day of training and expected me to start next day with 53 foot trailer running mail from the post office. I don't feel right and ready to drive yet. I let them know my concern and they pretty much said tough crap. Is this right or normal? Or am I just being a "baby". I see on most job postings they give atleast a week or two of training before going it alone. Thanks for any input.

Hunger may disturb sleep.  A light snack, especially warm milk, seems to help people get to sleep.


Various foods stimulate the body and disturb sleep.  Avoid coffee, tea, and cola drinks near bedtime.  Avoid heavy meals.
