So many rude comments about the instructors from previous people. I am totally in biased so I’ll leave the most honest review possible. Week one in the classroom I got the pleasure to be taught by none other, than Mrs. Mel. Comparing to previous comments she is NOT in any way/shape/ or form racist, or mean. She was one of the most wonderful and funny people there. She made the classroom portion fun, and kept people engaged. She will break down everything so that everyone is on the same page of understanding. Mrs. Mel will help you with anything and beyond to prepare you for your exam, and to start you off on the right direction. She treats everyone fairly so I’m unsure where previous comments come from. She’s great at what she does! Next you’ll do PTI, with Mr. Richard who was also fantastic to learn from. He will assure you that you are prepared for what you need to do for the state test. He is also another funny and entertaining instructor. He is more than fair, and has excellent teaching skills. On the 3rd week we got the opportunity to work with Mr. Ken. Not lemme tell you, Mr. Ken is awesome! He will not give up on you! He will teach you everything you need to know to get prepared for the state test. I also see previous comments about Mr. Ken that are untrue. He is fair, and extremely good at what he does. He is an honest man, and will teach you exactly what you need to know. Using everything I learned from Mr. Ken, I was able to pass my state test. He won’t sugar coat anything, and will teach you properly, you just need to listen to what he’s teaching you and you’ll be successful. He was my favorite instructor, which is not easy to say since all the instructors I got the pleasure of working with, were excellent. Now, I only got to work with Mr. Steve for one day, but when I was with him, he was nice to work with, and gave me tons of encouragement when I failed. Thank you Mr. Steve for the pep-talk. If you get to ride along with Will when you go over the road, he’s another great guy to work with. His instructions are clean and clear, and he will instruct you for your success. Now, I’m not saying this location is just show up and get your CDL, because it’s not. Even with previous experience, I still failed in different sections of this program. JD, the director got me back in there to get set up for my retest and success each time so that I could do what I came for. Now for the reasons I marked this program down to 4 stars. I understand some of this is out of location control, and it’s left to the corporate level. But you will be standing, 90% of the day in the sun, and aren’t really allowed to use the sun shades or just sit under them, so you’ll need to be prepared. The instructor to student ratio is a bit rough at times. At first, you’ll be in the truck for 15-20 minute sections, and on some days maybe just a few times a day. As a little time goes on, other students will go to other sections and when some of my fellow students graduated, we were at 4 students per instructor, and in the trucks every 30 minutes on the rotation. So at first, it’s a little rough to just be standing there for hours on end, awaiting your turn. Next is the check out system for your badge. You cant clock out, until exactly 5:30, so you are just standing there in a line until all 30-40 students checkout. Once you check out you still have to do a roll call which takes just as long, so you won’t be out at 5:30. If you are clocked out, you are burning your own time at that point. But it’s also the same for lunch time. And once again, I’m understand this is most likely at corporate level so hopefully they see this and can change policies to allow the school to be better for everyone. If I did not name an instructor, that doesn’t mean I don’t like them, I just didn’t work with them during my time at Roadmaster.
