    sorry misread that part......

    as far as cdl school goes look at the trade schools or CC first..... a lot less money for better training

    my school was $1,000 (8hr a day 5 days a week for 3 months) the cdl mill wanted $5.500 for a 3 days class

    I'm a believer in the college cdl courses! It did not cost us much ( $700 ea) and we got several weeks to practice our backing and driving skills.....which I needed! Lol

    Been driving on this account for a couple months now the account is still in transition so CRL/Greatwide is still pulling out of here until july 7th then all USX and walmart private, pay is not what they're telling people, expect to bring home 500-700/wk if you work 5 days, also be prepared to run off your 70 and work 7 days right now with 1 or 2 nights out a week. The people over there are good but the equipment is horrible still no day cabs and it seems we have more trucks sent to the dealer than on the yard. Dispatch is a good group of people and will have an onsite shop
