Saia dockworker to local city driver program

Does anyone have any information regarding this particular program or a similar program. Apparently Saia has a program in which you work the docks on 3rd shift loading and unloading freight using a forklift and after 90 days your eligible for cdl training that is 4 weeks. After you obtain your cdl you become a driver trainee (2nd shift) in which you complete an additional 300 hours or 6-12 months and then you go on your own. Just curious if any one can tell me if this is a good program. I guess on my end I would need to pay special attention to my offer letter and be sure their goal is to train me for a cdl and not just be driving a forklift.

JB Hunt Final Mile

FYI, Recently I applied to JB Hunt Final Mile (veterans only) position in Cincinnati to install appliances. I feel like It's a bait and switch job posting because the recruiter said their really picky and my fender bender I was in 3 years ago that resulted in $1100 in damage was a red flag. So the recruiter called me up and tried his best to sell me on a Home Depot account running out of Monroe, Ohio and driving within a 400 mile radius. 37cpm.

Also he said he could set me up with intermodal running out of Chicago. I would use my GI bill to pay for school along with a few more months of benefits for the apprenticeship too. That paid 42cpm. I told him I can't be gone overnight and if I was interested in that lifestyle I would've applied for class a cdl jobs not a local no cdl needed job. So anyway that's where I'm at. He really stressed the fact this is usually only open to experience drivers I guess they let veterans do it since they have automatic financing. Your thoughts?
