    I'll give you an honest answer :) I looked at FFE as well because they supposdly have a terminal in Miami which is close to me. There school looks great and has there own living quarters on sight. There are some youtube videos showing what they do. I was really considering them until I saw this thread posted by a member about a year ago.
    "Two things will combine to be deal breakers for me: the inflexibility of the three-weeks-out rule (it's just too long away from home with too little home time), and lay-days. This last week, I sat all day Saturday, Sunday and Monday before getting a load Tuesday. THAT load required that I drive about 50 miles, drop an empty and then wait 24 HOURS for a loaded trailer. I kid you not. My last two weekly paychecks were $280 and $190. One week I wasn't paid at all. I have only gotten paychecks over $500/week four times since January. I have yet to make more in a month with FFE than I made on unemployment"

    That was a deal breaker for me. I mean you don't really know the circumstances like if he refused to many loads or p'ed off the dispatcher, but you can't live off no paycheck for a week much less $190 a week!!!!!
