I know most of these are borderline rackets, but I am curious. If you had zero money, maybe enough to pay a cheap fee here or there..could you get started with anyone? In other words, is there any company out there that will training you for your cdl with nothing out of pocket? I understand you have to pay it back out of your checks when you get going but most I have seen still want you to put something down.
Do any of these actually include a place to stay while you train, rolled up in the cost? Or do you still have to pay for that too or live in your car for the next 3 weeks?
How do most trucking companies handle you being sick? Like say you get the flu and its coming out both ends and you are days away from home..how or what do you normally do?
Similar to the 3rd but more dreadful..how do they handle a death in the family? My dad is sick and frankly would be surprised if he's with us 2 years from now. How do most companies handle getting you home?
