Pros: They get you thru the process of getting your CDL
Cons: Hard to get home time in beginning, When you do- it takes forever to get back on the road, Administrative is screwed up, You need to stay on top of paperwork, and every other thing you need to do your job, Fire you at the drop of a hat!
There are few places these days that will train you up from ground zero, help you get your CDL and hire you on the spot. Sounds good. That's what I thought, and with their focus on safety, I was really happy with the prospect. But the training is minimal... if you are relatively smart and self-sufficient you will get thru the program as I did, and with some less than perfect habits... because they don't train them out of you... not during the training phase. So when you have a small mishap, like I did... where I drove thru a driveway that wasn't made for trucks at 3AM to turn around... and got the landing gear hung up on the driveway... and you tell them you can't afford to not get paid for a period of retraining, that COULD last a week or two... They fire you!! No options, no ultimatums. Just FIRED!! This doesn't even scratch the surface... for instance, when I changed from one fleet to another it took five calls to fuel to get my fuel card to finally work... So many problems, I'd skip it, if I could do it over again!
