"I WENT TO THE SCHOOL AFTER I BROKE MY NECK BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY WOULD GET ME A JOB. I TOLD THEM I ALREADY HAD A CDL BUT THEY SAID DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE TUITION THE JOB THEY WOULD GET ME WOULD PAY THE BILL. IF YOU READ THE CLAUSE CLOSELY IT SAYS IF YOU DON'T GO TO WORK WITHIN 7 DAYS OF COMPLETION, THEY WILL DOUBLE YOUR TUITION. LONG STORY SHORT THEY COULDN'T GET ME A JOB SO NOW I OWED 9,000. OVER THE 6 YEARS I DIDN'T HEAR FROM THEM THEY CLAIMED I OWED THEM 17,966. THEY DIDN'T GET MY CDL, A JOB, OR THEY WOULDN'T GIVE ME MY DIPLOMA. TWO YEARS AGO THEY SEIZED MY CHECKING AND SAVINGS ACCOUNT, AND TOOK ALL MY MONEY. I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM THEM IN TWO YEARS TILL TODAY WHEN I GOT ANOTHER COURT SUMMONS CLAIMING I OWE THEM 12,959.45. THE SCHOOL IS A NIGHTMARE. OVER THE YEARS THEY CALLED MY PARENTS, FRIENDS, BROTHER AND SISTER! THEY WILL NOT GIVE UP! I FEEL FOR YOU IF YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO GO THRU THIS!" - RANDY

"The place they put you in is called a halfway house by the instructors. Made me sick, their trucks would fail dot inspection. A instructor raised he'll with me, verbally assaulted me..that's when I left. Now I owe 11 grand and the judged laughed at me and my case. Everything is rigged, DO NOT BE A VICTIM!! This scam needs to be shut down period!" - Got taken

"This place is a rip off, warning do not do it, in the yard they have one instructor for 30 or more students, in the yard they basically leave you on your own, ask for help and all you get is a ass chewing, thought I was in boot camp, foul language, very little time on road, junk for equipment, some good instructors but few and fair between, bad management, stay away or lose $4000.00 like I did, dont do it." - Bob

"I was let go after one week, which I felt was unjustly. They said I needed to complete 300 hours, and I only did 25. My trainer was cool and all, and he told me I wasn't where I should be HOWEVER, I was progressing on my driving. Instead, they let me go based on the reviews which I thought was BEYOND stupid. Given that I had 275 hours left, that is a RIDICULOUS amount of time for me to improve, which I was doing in the little time I had. I will admit, at driving school I did not master the clutch. I was given 8 hours of shifting. The reason I got my license is that I was tested on an automatic. Did anybody else have that problem?" - Sam

"My son signed up in xxxxxx,xx for the training. Lied to from the start. Was told 200 out of his pocket, They told him that he would have a truck driving job and the co would pay for the class. Ya right. One week left and was told had to have 5.895 by monday or would be kicked out of the class. They said they could get him financing from standard financial services Murfreesboro, Tn. No one got the financing with out a co owner, it was set up to finance 5895.00 at 68 payments of 153.04. The finance charge is 4511.72 so your total is 10406.72 thats 20.974%. To learn to drive a truck.I was lucky enough or should I say my son was to have the money to pay up front which when I told them I would do that they knocked the starting price down by 1000 It cost me 4.895. This was not mentioned up front, I asked why and was told they were trying to keep there classes full. Please ask many questions before you sign the line. " - Fred

"Went to the Class in xxxxx.xx. They stated that it was a 4 to 1 training ratio. NOT!! In our class we had 43 students. There was only 4 insrtuctors on site. They show you the Driving Skills once, then expect your fellow students to help you learn them. If you dont learn them within the 5 days they let you practice. Then they make you sign an agreement to pay an additional $750.00 to tay an additional week. If you fail to learn it in that week. You are sent home and charged $1750 + the $750. They do this to reap large profits off those whom fail. If you do make it through the class, then you are sent out with mentors that dont teach you a thing. They just want you to keep the truck moving to make the company huge profits; while paying you pennies! " - Belote

"Went to xxxxx trucking school & I was prehired by xxxxxxx, I completed the school had already paid my 3900.00 got an orientation date went to orientation then somebody comes out of the office says come in the office then they tell me they can't hire me & I would have to leave. So after they have my money & time they just thru me away and I asked why I didn't gualify they said it's their policy not to say, I said well that's not my policy, but still have not got an answer, I said you hired me if I got my class A & I did, with a 93.6 gpa & now your firing me. don't you have to tell me why your letting me go, she said no. I said why did you call me to orientation then you've had all my info for a long time why would you call me to orientation if I wasn't qualified, she wouldn't answer. DOE'S ANYONE KNOW IF THERE'S ANYTHING I CAN DO?" - Mike
