I will be starting here on monday I am so excited! Celadons school is just a baby just a few months old. They want to fill 500 new jobs. I am happy to be one of the first few. It wont cost me alot either. Its a free school as long as you stay a year. Not a dime out of my paycheck. I will not have to pay for my own food. They will take care of my meals. I am ready I have everything I need. 2 Bills, birth certificate, marrage license, and my social security card. O and of course my license. I dont have alot of time to get everything ready, but I work well in a time crunch. Well I will keep you up to date. LATER!!!

I fogot to say I have had trouble in the past getting in a school becouse I dont have 3 yrs worth of work history. They almost turned me down. They lady asked me to get copies of my husband and my joint taxes back to 2010. I did and they excepted them.

Hey this is great news and I'm looking forward to following along! That's pretty cool that you're going to be one of the first students to attend their school. Hopefully it will be a lot of fun!

Juelma,

Yes, CR England. Its a loong story. I didnt get my cdl's so now I have to start over. I dont mind I am more prepared now. I also think that I could do better and learn more. So I am headed out again. I think I will like Celadon better anyway. They are better to their driver I can already tell and I havent even started yet. We will see.

CDL:

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.

Sounds like my situation and the difference between Decker and Navajo. All of these companies are good companies, it's just a clash of personalities, I guess.

I have a bus ticket waiting for me. I have to be at the bus station at 3:00 leave at 4:00 and due to arive at 7:30. When I get to Indianapolis I will call the shuttle to pick me up to take me to the hotel. I start class monday morning. I am so happy I get to have Easter dinner with my family before I leave.
