in less than two weeks I'm gonna be at Celadon's training facility in Indianapolis and some negative posts have popped up; should I ignore these and just try to do the best I can?

Yeah I think so unless they are specific in nature and can be proved to be a 100% accurate and true....! Go into the situation with both eyes & ears open and always do the best you can do. I also suggest you avoid hanging out with the loud mouth know it all's group and just stay focused on what you came to do and you should be fine. It's a school/training and not meant to be a vacation

Good Luck,

We will admit that that school has been having problems. Their program just started and with everything big, there's bound to be problems. They are still working out those issues, but for something this complex it takes time.

We can't tell you to go or not to go. The decision rests with you. If you're not comfortable than there are a ton of other companies who will probably be interested in you. Just don't do something you don't want to do.

If I would decide to attend, then I would come in with the expectation that it's not perfect and a lot of things won't make sense to you.


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.
