The school is a milking machine. There is a real game in this business and you need to be aware of them. Cross a line and your dead in getting help from this school. They can be very unethical, but this is legal. They can charge over 7 grand, and if you do not drive for a few months, they will claim you need more training, at a cost I've heard around 4 grand. Its a milking machine, and companies they may send you to, like Swift, Werner and Kalil, will treat you like second class citizens.
Good luck ... best to lease a truck and trailor and learn it yourself. Read the material from available books and take the test. Companies will say though, you need 3 and 6 months experience, whereas others will require 1 or 2 years experience. Its a game.

Hi Greg,

I'm not sure if you will get this in time, but I want to interview you for a story I am doing.

I am covering the Phoenix Diversity Career Day that just took place.

I am wanting to speak with someone who is diverse in some way, in your case, you said you were a veteran. I was hoping that you could give me any input on your job search, struggles, and successes regarding employment.

I need this done by Friday October 14th at the latest, so if you get back to me before then I really appreciate it. Thanks so much.

If anyone has other input let me know :)
Ashley
