Believe it was my mistake in the first place to think that me having a class b for 15 years and using it to tow medium duty tow trucks was going to be driving experience for me.

C.S. maybe there was a miss understanding yes 36 cpm to the truck with teams but the team thousand with the trainer 18 cpm is the only thing I am trying to avoid. And the way it was explained to me was when I am with the trainer I only get paid for the miles I drive. I have met great people that have worked for celadon for years . Just looking for guidance and information and got a great comment from someone saying that their company pays 750 or more which ever is better . I am looking to try to avoid the trainer if at all possible because I still have bills coming in and I can email the paperwork and contract that every student signs if they (Celadon ) pays for their schooling

C.S. it is for the trainer and for the 120 can post pictures of the paper work I have no reason to come here to lie. Just looking for guidance, and in no way shape or form am I saying celadon is a bad company. What I am saying is I paid for my schooling out of pocket where celadon didn't have to foot my bill I should get a little more money and if not I will be a celadon.

Nathan I came across a company hiring for a trainer today that was promoting 80 grand a year to make that 30 extra for training. On Craigslist today in Indianapolis.

Not drinking anything, but thanks as I understand it trainers go thru hell but to my understanding I only get paid for the miles I drive and no hourly rate what so ever so you were fortunate. I know they (Celadon ) pays 33 cpm for hiring in and am trying to find information so no need for slick comments about your Kool aid . I am giving facts to what I know. Now glad your trainer handled his business but do know they get paid much better for training. And if you don't think so your kol aid is stronger than you think

Yes 18 cpm on the 120000 miles you have to team drive. But my worries are the training for the first 10000 which don't count for your 120 you have to be with a trainer for your first 10000 and from what I have seen trainers are dragging their feet to get you thru your ten thousand miles and most I have seen are out for about 6 months for their first ten thousand when you should be able to knock that out in a month tops! The school was great ND the instructors were great. I have a week and can go back to celadon but trying to weigh my options

Yes 18 cpm but you have to run 120000 miles as a team but you have to do your first 10000 with a trainer and from people that returned to the terminal say most trainers slow walk your ten thousand miles so what should take a 4 weeks at the most is taking up to six months

They offered me the 18 com that they offer the students that get their training paid for so I declined the offer and trying to see if there is any other options or if I have to bite the bullet and drive for 18 com for 6 months
