    Are there any west mifflin PA based drivers on here who have done the lease to own program w/ Stevens Transport

    They have listed they lease either a top of the line Kenworth T-2000 or a Peterbilt 387, but can they also lease volvo VNL 860 77-inch by chance or do they even do volvo?

    How flexible is there lease program from each week to each month, and how would you rate there dispatchers.

    Stevens Transport had mentioned they offer the Alliance trial program which is for 60 days, and you have that amount of time to continue to being paid as a commercial driver while having a taste as a lease driver. How successful has the program turned out for most and would anyone recommend that program even if your fresh out of CDL training.

    How long is the CDL program they have, and how soon can you jump into solo driving w/ Stevens Transport?

    Stevens has a bad reputation was at the dps in Dallas when a class from there so called school was there for testing and I could have sworn they were escapees from a retard home ... I think there lease program is one of the worst you will be paying a lot more for your truck and be tied to a bad company. ..... one word of advice if you decide that you want to train at starter companies that's fine but look at it as a year of training. .. just get your year in and then find a good job .... in a nutshell none of these training companies are worth leasing a truck from. .... think about it why do they have a training program .... because they can't find enough experienced drivers or keep the drivers they have ...... and why ? because there are a lot better option's for experienced drivers. to recommend a good starter companies and myself I think your better off with a smaller company ... the closest one that I know would be dutchmaid in Willard ohio .. any of these companies will be taking advantage of your inexperience as far as pay goes so my best advice would be get a year in then explore all the options

    if you look at some of those you tubers, they paint a rosey picture, but they don't stay long, they can't get there drivers home, like once every 3 months, swift has 4 trailers per truck lots of drop and hook and are every where, meaning they can get you home, no lumbers at 2am

    Kingdroge seems to be the only YouTuber with anything resembling success and that's debatable.

    yep, skimp dee girl left cause she couldn't get home, she's doing hazmat now, what company is unknown, i ask kingdroge whats there traffic lanes they haul he said all 48, thats not an answer, the answer i'm looking for is mostly RT-40 or 70 or 40 to RT-95 towards the northeast, but nooo, so if no one now's the main area of operation home time can be harder, most company's on there web site will show a shaded area of hiring area, now swift has terminals across the country so you now you can get home, and 4 trailers per truck lots of drop and hook, but shorter runs
