This school was recomended to me by a friend that graduated from there. I was told to go see Vivian, when i got there i was told that she had gone to pick up lunch by the strange woman with the nervous laugh that sits up front. I almost left because i just did not feel comfortable enough sitting with her there in front of me while i waited, people that do not look you in the eye or have that strange laugh at things that are not funny always have something to hide, as i was about to leave Vivian walked in with lunch. She made me feel at ease as soon as she walked in and went on to explain what i had to do to get the permit that i needed. I signed up a few days later and I have to say that Vivian, Juan, Jose and Norbert were ALWAYS very friendly and eager to help. Every Morning i was greeted by Vivian with a smile and a welcome, every so often she would tell me that the instructors told her how my progress was and that i was doing great. The day i graduated i already had a job waiting for me. I highly recommend this school. I went back to USA CDL because I needed to upgrade my license. I can only say THANK GOD that beast that used to sit in the front is gone. Lord have mercy on those that used to come in contact with her. A more artificial person you could not come across with. She was horrid when she was alone in that office and changed when others were around. I was there on 2/20/15 for my upgrade and there is a new person in the front who was friendly and she seemed like a nice person. I will sign up again now that the weird woman is gone.
i agree with the previous review. The staff is great. Vivian is the lady you speak with when you first come in and she is very clear on what the laws are and what you have to do to get your CDL. I came to the school with my boyfriend daily while he was training and she made me feel at home. The instructors were awesome, very friendly and with a lot of patience for teaching. I was made to feel at home while I was there, they were not upset that I had to sit in the office while my boyfriend was training. The only thing that i just did not like was the way the older man that sits there once in a while makes the students feel, it is very uncomfortable, he stares at the back of the people that walk in and out of that office. He seemed very unprofessional. I just did not find him friendly not that he did not try, but i found him artificial. The day my boyfriend was graduating i stayed past 5 P.M. and when the office staff left I was left there with the old man and I had to go sit in the car because of the negative feelings I had sitting there with him. Besides that i would highly recommend the school staff. They are all very down to earth and knowlegeable. Just don't sit in the office with what i am assuming in the general manager or you will begin to feel unwanted.
My friend graduated from this school and suggested I join since I was looking for a CDL. I read the reviews and I figured I would go and talk to them and see how things were. I read about the rude lady in the front and I must say that I graduated and the lady while not in school the last week I was there she was very friendly when she was. She did not seem fake or artificial in any way, but that is what some of the reviews say about her. The lady who runs the school Vivian was able to answer all my questions and when I signed up she told me that if I had any problems to go to her, that made me feel great. I did not have any problems at all. Joe, Juan, Norbert and the older Joe were great and made me feel like I was picking up the information even when I did not believe I was advancing in class. I say this is a great school and they all have lots of patience with students like me who do not know anything about this industry.
