Is this a company sponsored training school or do I have to obtain my cdl from a private schooling and then get hired from them... The website doesn't show anything about being a company sponsored program....

yes, this is a company sponsor training. free. once you start on the road with an instructor for 4-6 wks, you will receive $$450 week pay. they will deduct $50 week til $2500 is paid, they will match the other $2500 when that is paid and the cost of $5000 is paid. its best to contact them for any info.

Although it doesnt say on thier website , their ad on oklahoma city craigslist does. when you call them or apply they will tell you that after they approve you, then they will send you the online training materials for your state to get your permit. it will save 2 weeks of class. call them for moe info.they seem like a decent place, im not sure what they pay. just says great pay.benefits, paid vacation,401k ect.

Although it says 4 weeks training i was told to use the online training materials they send you and you need to get a CDL permit, then you only have 13 days of actual training before you go on the road with a trainer for 4-6 weeks. after that its back to the shop and off you go.

Finally may have a company that will sponsor me with 3 duis in lifetime

Thanks, i have informed them of all duis, felonies and misdemeanors. everything was 15-25 yrs ago. SRT does company sponsorship ike swift and the rest. although england,swift and the major ones wont offer me the training and work due to 3 dui. as far as private schools, alot of local compainies will hire, its the OTR that is more strict due to insurance. they have got evrything straight up and excepted me at CRT for company sponsor training. im just debating that and OTR or private and stay local... i am gonna invest a settlement into hot shot and owner op and not sure i wanna dedicate a yr OTR before i can start it. my partner has been an OTR for about 15 yrs and will also be investing with me. the only reason i want a CDL is for larger heavy hauls. we wanna offer it al.

My bad..its SRT not CRT lol. well, i have a local school thet will give me private schooling with job placemet after completion with tuition reimbersment. they say they are so confident in job placemet that they accept a $500 down to start and fininsh and wont make you pay it back until your employed through there job placement. if for any reason you dont work for any of the many companies and try to do your own thing they will make you pay back same as company sponsor. only problem is i may not be residing there for much longer so loacal work would be an issuee to pay it back. and yes, they are one of two that would but the other was some off the wall company i didnt really care for the way they were set up. i can get my CDL and have some pre hires so thats not an issue, but i like the fact of the free training, and mostly safe driving experience with company sponsor and hire for the first yr.

Finally may have a company that will sponsor me with 3 duis in lifetime

i have been having alot of trouble finding a company-sponsored program that will allow 3 duis in a lifetime. most are at 2 duis for insurance reasons. SRT said its not a problem since they were over 15 plus ys ago. 25 yrs was 2 of the 3. so im just waiting for my application to be approved. they are located in arkansas. has anyone ever heard of them. you must have a permit before being accepted. the cost is $5k. they will deduct $50 per week from wages til $2500 is paid back. then they will match the other $2500 and dues are paid. the class is 13 days long for driver training. then its 4-6 wks with instructor over the road. they seem to have about average the benefits and pay as most. i am looking to get my CDL and experience for a yr so i can run hot shot loads. i know i can do it with a nice dually and gooseneck trailer, but i want to haul heavier loads and make more money. im a workaholic so i don't mind the hours or being on the road. in time i will run semi and 1 ton trucks for all transport. i have been self employed most my life and i am a gd business man and hard go getter. i been a painting contractor for years and also own and operated sweepstakes cafes. im looking into something different. i have many friend that are op and are doing real well. the ones running hot sot are doing better. they just don't have the benefits.anyways if anyone knows any thing or been through this company or worked for them please give some input. they seemed legit and up to par. this is not crst...its SRT.

Any companies that have company sponsored training that allows more than two dui's in a lifetime

Thanks, i have called about all on the list you have on this site. i know i could take a private class and be reimbersed for some tuition if hired. but without knowing for sure it would be a waste of money. im just looking for a career change, i love traveling and my past job had me traveling, just wasnt worth the pay. any other opinions are welcomed.
