I was there too and it seems that your description is pretty accurate. Many people in my class were sent home and only a small part of the original group graduate. In my case I graduated and was sent out with a training engineer. Unfortunately, Schneider did't pass me at QST and I didn't have a job. My advise would be to find a different company that had a longer training period with the road trainer. Schneder only had a two week run while some of the other companies have four weeks of training on the road or more. My road trainer, who is no longer with the company, told me that I was doing a good job. Also, when you don't get a job you can't pay for your driving school, the cost of which has escalated to almost $5,000 with the interest and penalties.
