Showing 3 reviews out of total
First off the school is good. I drove over the road for 2 1/2 years. Roadmaster taught me how to drive. Some of the time is wasted but they do a fair job getting you to where you needed to be.
Job placement wise, here is my issue. Yes they will find you a job. To there credit they tell you that they are starter companys. My issue is this the try and tell you how much money you will make being an otr driver. The first year expect $500 a week that is if you stay running. If you slum down to drive teams you can make like $650. Making 45k a year is complete b.s. maybe 18 months in but starting not a chance.
The only way I made money was being a lease operator. If you are single and dont need a home then trucking is perfect for you. If you have a family or permanent house dont bother. Plan on being out for 8-10 weeks, 12 if you really want to stay ahead of your truck payments.
I drove and went to online school on road then got out fast. Its a great learning experience if you treat it like a buisness you can go far. Be safe.
I hope this review receives attention from any prospective student or company interested in doing business with Roadmaster. I work for a non profit organization, who asked me to get my CDL license as a backup driver in emergencies. I took classes on my own and received a CDL driving permit after completing the required state tests. I called Roadmaster to administer the skills test as a third party examiner. They agreed to do so and asked that I pay 150.00 to take the test. I showed up on the morning of the exam only to be told that the truck didn't have appropriate tags. I had provided all of the information on the truck and trailer to the school a week in advance and no one stated there was a problem. In fact, it took the examiner nearly an hour to determine whether or not she could administer the test with the information I provided them. After waiting an hour, the instructor turned me away. I asked if I could go to the DMV and rectify the situation and return to take my test. I was told that they wouldn't be able to administer the test again for another three days. I had already paid the 150.00 out of the funds of a non profit organization. I went elsewhere to get the skills test administered, the same day I might add. After all of this, the company refuses to refund the money to the organization. They claim that the instructor still had to be paid and be available for the test, whether I took the exam or not. I have contacted the company numerous times to be told there is nothing they are willing to do. I was even told that money is tight and they wouldn't be willing to revisit the issue. I would have given this company a half or a quarter star but that option isn't available through google reviews. In business, your reputation is everything. I believe that this review should illustrate the reputation this company is comfortable operating in.
As a current student in training I have seen or heard 3 instructors quit or get fired. The school be under staffed. Lied to by every single employee to include the Principal & director "Be told that I'm getting personal training to keep my finger up my hind quarter & spend 145 hours paying to not learn be disrespected and lied continually. This is the poorest representation that I have ever seen.
As a result I would not recommend anyone to attempt to further there education with this so called professional company & if I could ask for a refund and actually see it I would be greatly thrilled with the out come instead of accruing more debt then I originally planned. Because they don't have enough trainer or quality as a company.
