    I am set to start CDL training through Driver Solutions for a job with PAM in a couple of weeks. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with their driver training program.

    Yep, did the school in Asheboro, NC, then orientation and now teaming. Been burning up the road and having a large time! No regrets. Good luck!

    They just had an advertisement on Craigslist in Baltimore. Made swift and crengland look like they pay well.

    I didn't say it pays well, although with the miles my co-driver and I have been getting I never expected to make this much money. But I'm not here for the money, just the free education and experience, both of which I'm getting so I couldn't be more pleased.

    I should have added, teams seem to be shown a bit of favoritism with regards to loads, so no wonder we're rolling like we do. I have several friends who ended up solo and have already moved on because of their disappointment. My situation is unique in that I have no bills at all, so it fits me like a glove. I would imagine though for a family man, or woman, it could present financial challenges if they sat for very long.

    So what is the pay like? I too would choose to go team. Yet I am a family man- household of 6. I am set to start as soon as I choose with C1 and then on with PAM. I need an idea of what you guys are getting out there. Thanks!!
