Scott this doesn’t suprise me based on my former dealings with them.

First off notify them that the timeline they outlined is “Not reasonable”. You will consult with your attorney on the best course of action and let them know.

I hate doing business this way, but they caused it.

Dac entries are like credit report entries, can pop up quick or later. Personally I hate that system.

They are holding up your training certificate until they get their money. Basically keeping you out of the mega carriers, they all want that.

You really need to consult with an attorney. As I said before you did get trained so be prepared to pay something for that.

If your still wanting to do this apply everywhere, sounds like you were never an employee at stevens so they are not a former employer. Be honest but don’t volunteer any information not asked. Hopefully you can land a job with tution assistance to pay off your school.

I wish you the best.

Thank you PJ. This is so weird. I'm going to get an attorney because I have no problem paying something for my training but I have no clue what affect this had on my record. I'm not paying for a license that may be connected to negative information. I didn't do anything.

Also, I have my official certificate of completion for Stevens Transport Training Program signed by James McCain in my possession. Along with my certificate for hazardous materials training and testing signed by my instructor. And I have my orange folder called "2nd Seat Driver Information". It has all the maneuvers I did, how many hours I did them and and an "S" for satisfactory next to each one. It is signed by the lead instructor, skills instructor and road instructor, along with "OK To Go With Trainer" "Y" for yes.

I'm gonna step out of bounds here, & I pre apologize to Brett & OS.

PJ's S/O untangled from them awhile back, and his email is in his profile.

Many of usns, are.

This is ... Effing Idk!! Almost OJ but truck training infamous.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Thank you for your help and advice Anne. I have a lawyer looking over the legal documents I signed. All I want is for someone at Stevens to communicate with me. I need to know what my record with them is going to reflect. I have no problem paying for my schooling but I'm not paying for something that might be tainted or contain negative information, that could affect my career. I keep saying this, but I didn't do anything wrong.

For right now I'm back at the job I quit to go to Stevens. I'm just going to be patient and make sure I come out of this with a clean start.

Definitely consult an attorney specializing in Contractual Law. Stating that, the question is, How far do you want to take with legal action? I would be angry with Stevens if they did me dirty, also. My emotions would want to cause me to "make them pay for their screw up!" But, like you, I would start thinking more rationally and decide what the best form of action would be best for me financially and emotionally in the long run, without piling more stress, anger and frustration on what I currently had. Steven's did you dirty, and they know they did. They are offering you a one time payment half of the schooling. As frustrating as their actions are, paying an attorney to go after them could cost more than that. Also, seems like they would have no issue reporting it on you DAC later if you don't "cooperate" and play their way. Contact them about their offer, but be assertive and come from an attitude of strength, not weakness. Do not mention to them again how you "didn't do anything wrong." If you do decide to accept their offer of half the tuition, state to them you need more than two days to pay in full. It seems they are enticing you to pay them quickly to "make things go away." I will bet this Gina person will deny she stated what you say she did, and/or someone else will intervene and keep her out of future correspondence. Good luck.
