    So, where I last left off with you...I pulled out of Roadmasters here in Tampa after experiencing some "shady" behaviors from the recruiter as well as being told I wasn't getting "hire letters" from Werner or Stevens. I had decided to hold back for a few months and revisit this decision in the summer. I had since was offered a promotion at work that now seems like it's been pulled back. So I responded by exploring alternative trucking school(s). Found on named 1st Class trucking here in Tampa who offers classes for $4K a $3,000 difference from Roadmasters so I'm back at it again.
    I would really like to apply on my own before committing to school rather than wait on them to "do it for me".
    I'll keep you posted and appreciate your feedback.

    How many hours? Website has 3 - 4 weeks long, so it's probably 160 hours, which is best.
    As soon as you get a start date; submit some applications.
    I think Navajo Express wants 140 hours.

    If you could maybe research some companies and see what fits best for you then you could just go directly to a company and let them train you. Although you will be committed to them for a period of time which is something to think about.

    The guy said Monday through Saturday 8-5 but then said i could make my own schedule, dunno what that means. How many hours in total will be one of my questions when i meet with them
    Researching companies is something ill definitely do but from what I learned its pretty much straight forward, you sign on, go to an orientation go out with a partner then pray you get a decent dispatcher who will keep you driving without the drama, come home after 6 weeks or so, sleep on a bednforn3 days and repeat. Unless im missing something, no?

    Ask how many hours the school is.
    Ask which companies they place drivers with.
    *
    You can contact some companies and ask how many hours they want.
    Some are flexible a little.
    *
    I'll give you a few names and if you're interested, call and ask about length of school.
     
    Adelmo Thanks this.
