    Unfortunately, that's their version of "legal rape". And, they have it down pat...

    I paid $750.00 for cdl school, back in the day, but that's irrelevant today.
    Trucking company cdl schools are free providing the drivers fulfills his end of the contract to drive for the company for a set amount of time. What's so difficult to understand that?

    Well I’ve finally graduated. I’d say it was good but not 7500 good. I’m curious how my experience would have been if I went to southwest trucking down the street. They teach manuals

    • In other words do your diligence and always read the fine print before signing a contract. :cool:

    Werner. The other two options were may and covenant. I read that the latter two were “second chance” trucking outfits. Whatever that means… it didn’t sound good so Werner was the choice.

    May and Covenant are good companies. May will cut some slack on long periods of unemployment, but that shouldn't class May as 2nd chance company.
    Best wishes with Werner though.

    @MaximumOverdrive21 --

    Given your last response, above...

    consider as food for thought: start a totally separate thread here on the Forum, and give us some (running) perspective on what life for a new(er) driver is like over at Werner.

    The good, the bad....and the ugly.

    The dispatch, the loads, the runs (short or long -- or both), how well they do hometime, how well they keep up their equipment (or don't), etc, etc.

    This would be especially great if you started out in dry van...and then later went over to reefer (or vice-versa).

    Again -- just some food for thought.... :dontknow:

    His pay won't be that great with dry van, but at least his cdl school will be paid for, which is a big plus.
    When his contract is fulfilled, he can switch to a reefer or tanker company and make the better pay.
