    Does anyone have any insight on this school. I am aware that they prescreen and train for companies (Stevens and Total Transportation). I do not know much more! Any information is helpful. Thanks in advance!

    I read the website and the school is 160 hours. This means, where you live in Gaffney, you're in the hiring area for a couple of dozen companies that hire new cdl graduates from 160 hr. cdl schools.
    What do you want to do, run the roads and see the USA or regional where you don't travel too far from home. What type trucking; tankers, flatbed, reefers, dry van? Do you want teams running to California and back or do you want solo driving.

    Here's an example of a tanker company that hires from 160 hr. cdl schools.
    The pay they show is accurate. I know, because I used to work for Tankstar, which owns Rogers Cartage. Lots of extra pays on top of cpm pay add up to a big paycheck each week.
    Rogers Cartage Company ( .50 cpm loaded or empty)

    I'm just looking to get my foot in the door and start a new career really. I'm willing to run 48 or regional no matter what rig it is in I just need experience for now. I will worry about particulars when I get my "wings" (wheels)! Thanks for the insight!

    You don't have to start out on the bottom; go for the high quality carriers from day one.

    Thanks @Chinatown, but unfortunately, I have no recent verifiable work history, and a 15 over speeding violation from 2017. So... I will be at the mercy of the "not so great" to get me started.
