My Knight - mare with Squire Training

For anyone who cares, here is my experience....A total waste of my time. I drove 12 hours to their cdl school in AZ on my own dime and had to provide for my own lodging. AZ students get the advantage of testing there but out state students have to go home to test in their home state despite the fact that the AZ dmv will allow out of state students to get a cdl permit if attending cdl school in AZ. I completed 2 weeks of schooling but didn't feel ready to test. I kept asking for more training. I kept asking to test there. The answer to both was always "no". They evaluated me and released me back to my state to test and I failed my skills test. I asked to go back to AZ and get my permit so i could train a bit more and test where I learned. They finally agreed but told me that the person who tested everyone else, a person i feel comfortable testing with, wont be testing me but instead i have to be tested by a 3rd party tester. No one was tested by a 3rd party tester during my schooling. In essence, they are making things difficult for me on purpose. Very unprofessional behavior. I now see it as dodging a bullet. I don't want to work for a company that plays games with people's lives.
