Shouldn't they have explained that to him before the schooling? That is wrong to give him the schooling and THEN say we have you on a mandatory contract. I would reread my papers before signing anything else. and legal advice is always good.
Thanks for the imformation. Yep I paid over 3 grand for CDL training. I was a little confused because when I was in school a recruiter from Star told us his company would not force us to sign a mandatory contract like the rest of the companies. So in other words he just ball faced lied to us knowing that all of us sitting there had already paid for our own tuition. Sure are alot of shady companies out there. Thanks again.
I DROVE FOR TMC IN 1998,GOOD EQUIPMENT,NICE PEOPLE(EXCEPT FOR THEIR CRAZY SAFETY DUDE!!!HE WAS EX-DOT,NOT REALLY A BAD GUY.)AT THAT TIME I DIDN'T HAVE TO SIGN A CONTRACT.JUST MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR TRUCK WASHED.
Strange occurance ... I answered an ad in my local paper.
[Call 877-214-3624. Driver Trainee needed, earn up to $900/wk, home weekends with TMC. No CDL, no problem, company endorsed training.]
Phone call answered like this ... "Are you 21?(yes) Do you already have your CDL?(yes) You need to call this number, 888-487-8257.(ok thanks)
So I called that number and got WERNER recruiting office. After their questions, I asked them if they were affiliated with TMC? NO! Strange I said and told them the story. No explanation or reason why. End of story. Strange I think indeed!
