Anyone have experience with Keller Trucking Defiance, Oh?

Couldn't agree more Brett, but sometimes it comes down to economics. I'm planning on trying some negotiations.

Yes, unrestricted. If you take your driving test in an automatic then you have a restriction on your CDL for "automatic only". I don't want the restriction, but I don't want to pay $1000 out of pocket either......decisions.

In the beginning...

The company I just applied to is all automatic. If you want the "automatic only" restriction off your CDL they make you bear the expense of an extra week at driving school. I'm on the fence about weather to pocket the expense. Good Luck JoAnne!

I've been following along. Thanks so much for taking the time to write it up. I do a low carb lifestyle myself and completely understand where you're coming from on the eating/dining options and habits!

Thanks a lot G-Town! I had already read most of those. I think I'm going to go with Keller. They had no problem answering all of my questions directly and promptly. Honestly, my biggest question is if the pay seems fair for a rookie. They pay for two weeks of trucking school and that's the automatic course. If you want the standard endorsement you have to go an extra week and it's your expense @ $1000. School is at Trainco in Perrysburg Ohio. They offered to put me up in the driver's house they have on site while attending school, but there's no pay during schooling. After that it's 5 weeks with a trainer at $125/day. After all of that they require a 6 month Commitment to pay back the training. If anyone wants to weigh in on weather this seems like a reasonable deal please feel free. I've seen some programs that seem a little better and some that seemed a little worse. Here's a link to their regional pay scale for new drivers: https://driveforkeller.com/entry-level-regional/

Thanks Robert! I'm considering a career change and stumbled across their website. I spoke to their recruiter yesterday. Definitely a smaller carrier. I never thought deciding what company to choose would be so difficult.

Hello all, I'm considering company sponsored CDL training and stumbled across Keller Trucking. I couldn't find much info from drivers about them. Anyone here ever drive for them? Thanks in advance.
