.

I attended tractor-trailer driving classes at Shippers Choice after being unemployed for several months. I got pre-hired by a major company even before I graduated and after completion of the program started working immediately. My class had about 20 students most of which had employment offers like me even before I got my CDL. I am now earning two and a half times what I have ever earned about $66.000 a year. The biggist problem with the school was the students in my class, many of which did not understand that they were responsible for learning the materials that they were instructed in like the pre-trip, Some had an attitude that they were entitled to be licensed without any effort on their part. Students thought that somehow they did not have to study or apply themselves and took a very casual approach to learning what the instructors were trying to teach. and thought that because they paid tuition, they would be licensed. I saw students using stupid excuses for not being responsible for themseves, not following the instructors repeated recommendations and simply not taking advantage of the learning opportunity. During class, I could pick out the students who were always dissatisfied because they failed to do what was required of them. I could pick out the students who were going to fail becuase of their lack of effort in applying themselves. You could see that they expected the school to do everything for them and they shunned or had stupid reasons for not learning the required materials. I never drove professionally before and I have a family. It was important for me to get a job and learn all I could and I learned a lot at Shippers. I read a complaint that a student in my class said about Shippers. Of course, the school was at fault for him not getting his license according to him. I got the same instruction, used the same trucks with the same instructors and passed my test and have a great job. Although I will not mention his name he was one of the most irresponsible students in class, Never studied, always late for class, left early and tried to hide from the instructors. Always had a lame excuse for not studying and burdened the rest of us with how great he was and that this was a "piece of cake" He boasted that he could pass the test because he knew it all already as his brother owned a truck. His attitude was terrible from the start. The school told him to shape up but he knew it all. He failed his test at DMV three times. I was there to watch him embarass himself in front of the whole class. Naturally, people like that blame everything and everybody, they complain about the trucks, the instructors, the schools policies and the DMV Examiner everyone but himself. Yet it was obvious to all that the guy failed on his own by his own lack of effort and his know it all attitude. Shippers Choice did its job, gave him extra practice time and took this clown three differnet times to help him get licensed. Just like any school you get out of it what you put into it and he got his just reward for his incompentence. I was there when a truck broke down after a student stalled it from improper use of the clutch. Its a learning process and the trucks admittedly take a beating. Noone liked that situation and there was some mumbling from students about the school should have better trucks. It is explained that the trucks are training trucks and get abused by the learning students. The schools mechanic traced the problem to a loose battery connection and I took the opportunity to wach him trace the problem.and fix it. I am glad I did cause I had the same problem with my companies truck. I knew what to do thanks to Shippers. From the other drivers who have attended other schools who I have met, it seems that equipment problems arrise from inexperienced drivers (students) abusing the equipment during the learning process. I saw that at Shippers and from what the other drivers tell me, they experienced the same problems at the schools they went to. One school (at a community college) had 11 trucks of which 9 were unusable. All in all, I was happy with shippers, they taught me what I needed to know, I put in the effort .and they helped me get my job. It was well worth the time and money as I already earned that back. I would recommend this school to anyone who sincerely wishes to have a career as a tractor trailer driver. I also would suggest to prospective students not to attend any school if they think they can not make the transition to being responsible from a lifetime of blaming everything and everybody for their own failures. I got what I paid for and you can to as long as you do your part. The trucking industry needs good drivers NOW.
