My experience was not great, the second week of class I started driver training at the yard. Almost immediately they were short on instructors and when driving, all the students had to pile into 1 truck, that's 3 in the back and 1 driving with the instructor in the passenger seat with no A/C in July. 4 hours total all week. Then when I complained about the lack of drive time for manual transmission driving the regional manager came to the site and was very arrogant with me saying basically that's how it's done. When I went to take my state test they brought me a trailer that did not have the current inspection stickers and paperwork with it so I couldn't test with it, then the next day they brought me a 53ft trailer that I had never practiced with (I only practiced with a 48ft). I failed that test. I had to drive 2 hours both directions both days on my dime for there screw up. I eventually got my CDL. Afterwords I asked for help finding a job and someone from there job placement department called me and said he would start working on getting me a list of interested employers...that was 3 weeks ago and I haven't heard from anyone since. I have a good job driving for a local company now, but I would suggest to anyone not to wast your money at 160.
