    Once everything is set on the truck the drivers will need medical cards. My experience has been both ways on who pays for the physical. Thoughts?

    Company should pay for the DOT physical but if the guy is a new hire besure and have it in writing that if he quits or is fired before 90 days of employment then the cost of the exam and drug tests will be deducted from his final paycheck and he will need to sign it you could make it part of the employment application
