    There is sage truck driving school in Caldwell. They have recruiters that come and talk.

    May has a yard in payette but you’ll be dispatched out of brooks, OR. They have a western 11 that always needs drivers. It’s all 1-3 day runs with multiple stops.

    I believe so, it's their journey through training and into solo. In the short time I've been looking I've realized that you can't take much of what a carriers website says at face value. Especially the employee testimonies they all seem to have.

    Seems like the ####tier the company the better looking the site and the more grand the testimony lol.

    A friend of mine went through Wilson's CDL training program in Springfield back in October, and he's been solo almost two months now. Other than the initial trainer that took him out for the first week, which he didn't like at all, he has a lot of positive things to say about the company so far. He realizes its a stepping stone to the next job after his contract is up, but he's happy with the choice he made.

    I really appreciate you guys helping me! I plan on writing about my experience going through CDL training, driving B-seat and maybe write about my experiences on the road after that to help out anyone new and interested in Wilson.

    If I ever run into any of you on the road and have some time I'll have to buy you a coffee!

    If it works out, I'm out of the Pacific WA yard, I'll take you up on that coffee... Good luck.
