Keeping an open mind on all the bad reports about the time frame here. I've studied the training program here and I'm ready to go. I haven't seen anybody post anything about it, but I'm assuming Celadon does not have a simulator. Anybody with any info?

and good luck at Celadon. Keep us posted on your experience there ...

What I've experienced so far.

1. Celadon is a good company. MAX is a dedicated teacher who is looking out for your best interest.

2. You will not necessarily be at the dorm. You will not necessary have a room to your own. Flea bag quality inn 19 miles away, 19 miles AWAY.

3. The representation and rumors that celadon is un organized and procrastinating is untrue. There is plenty of clowns and cracky peeps up in here. They fill up the time slots and waste time. Celadon is guilty of not weeding out the idiots that just want food and shelters.

4. Schneider and another company are responsible for all the testing in the area. They routinely cancel appointments for their benefit. Delaying celadon students.

5. Keep on your recruiter! Some are good some are bad. Get your info

6. No simulator

7. The food is hit and miss. It's free, mostly. Yogurt, salad, healthy food extra.

8. Bring your stuff! I swear. The recruiters send you an email telling you what to bring. BRING IT! Original Birth certificate, DL, 2 pieces of mail with the name matching your license, Original SS card.

9. Ladies, if you have been married bring your license for EACH TIME YOU HAVE BEEN MARRIED!

10. The dorms are pretty cool. More on that later.

Talk to you tomorrow.
