I live in Miami FL, and after doing quite a bit of research online and on this REALLY GREAT site, I am first and foremost considering going to Roadmaster school, but when I am searching on these forums I have not seen much if any mention of this school. Does anyone have anything to say about Roadmaster? Appreciate any and all comments :)

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

OK, Well, should I take the LACK of comments to mean that no one knows anything about Roadmaster Driving School? Has anyone even heard any Rumors about Roadmaster LOL...?? If not, hey, that's cool - If I make it in there (hopefully by end of month) I will be letting everyone know how it goes for me anyway. Waiting to hear if my pre-hire app with Werner is accepted. ....How about Werner? Anyone have anything to say about them? Thanks :D

Pre-hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

Alot of the comments on this forum are from DRIVERS...running down the road..and when they have time...they come in here and post on topics...to help those folks who want to get in to trucking, have a question, or need some advice. I am retired from trucking, so I can come in here when ever I want. But I have never gone to a trucking school per say...My trucking school was 4 days long. Then I hit the road in a long nose Pete...OJT..can't beat it. I've heard of the school...I've not heard anything bad...

Only thing i heard about Roadmasters is that there class can be packed at times and if its packed then you might not get as much drive time in. I went to Miller Motte College and we only had 5 students so therefore we got a lot of practice behind the wheel

I noticed in another thread you mentioned you were in south Florida. Have you researched which companies might be hiring out of there? The reason I ask is there seems to be very few companies that hire out of Florida and especially southern Florida. Schools are about a dime a dozen and you will want to talk to the schools to find out which companies are more likely to hire from them and then call the companies to verify that they hire from the schools you are looking at. Roadmasters is one of the larger schools in the US and many companies do in fact hire from them but it becomes more important due to the area you live in.
