Student (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – February 22, 2018
A great place to study. Management wanted you to be successful. Adequate directions and instructions. Sometimes hard to get the concepts due to such a large class. The weather was hot and almost unbearable but plenty of water was provided to the students. Great collaboration between the students to help each other learn. Overall, it was a good place to learn and the staff was always ready and available to answer all questions.
There is a great deal of unethical treatment of students and staff, within a hostile work environment, favoritism, nepotism, unrealistic expectations all taking place in a run down dilapidated building.
The school is being run by two expunged cops that are bullies who have very little experience in how to run a school; they're only doing what they know, bully people. When I went to HR for harassment, I became a target followed by retaliation and I will be pursuing a case against this organization. I am really surprised that the parent company, Werner Enterprises, has allowed this activity to continue, especially in this day and time when dignity and respect should be the minimum cost for admission.
They are charging students a premium price for CDL training and when they graduate, they have a restriction on their license, they can only drive automatics.
