Maybe y'all need more info to reply. Cause I need answers quick. I'm already scheduled to start training at one of the schools and have read nothing and heard nothing but negatives about it. On the other hand I have read and heard nothing but positives about the other. Problem being, not sure what is confirmable or isn't. Help please...

I don't know what CRE's program is like, but I'm just settling down after my first day at a school used by PAM, USA truck, and a few others. Any specific questions I can answer, I'd be glad to help :D

I've heard good things but have you had any sneak up cost or unexpected things in the contract. Excited yet sooo scared.

Can I put a few important off days in my contract;such as child graduation and ship date to boot camp

Hey, nice simulpost!

As far as the school goes, it seems pretty good so far, but it would be hard to really evaluate things after a day of formalities. I would note that this particular school serves PAM, USA Truck, and a few others. Use your recruiters -- get to know what working with them is like would be my free advice, but I'm not exactly experienced.

I have a feeling that the school would take a very dim view on working out time away... but it doesn't seem that time for life events comes easily in this industry, and I assume that's something that they will be trying to prepare you for.

OK, if you learn any important info like do you have to lease your truck or just anything that could help with my desicion in the next few days that would be great.

I think schooling would be over by the end of this school year... Wouldn't disbatch work with me?

Do you Dot or sign papers first?

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.
