TERRIBLE SCHOOL USE MIDLAND TECH – Jan 2012
I agree with the 2004 review, inside instruction is OK, but any changes they made were for the worse, outside instructors, can't teach you, they want only people who can already drive a 18 wheeler, if you can't they scream and throw kiddie tantrums, they will grab the stick and slam it into gear if you have trouble double clutching or down shifting(most do) resulting in screwed up equipment you have to work and learn with.They then expect you to know which gear they forced it into.
One instructor will continually harrass you with sarcastic comments, instead of telling you what your doing wrong and how to correct it. I saw 3 or 4 people during my time there, that had these issuse, it was not just me.
Attitudes are terrible, you are paying for service, but do not get it, if they have to TEACH you, they prefer to just run you off,if you can drive a truck and just need to take test your welcome.
who wants to pay for lousy service, you are paying these people for exactly that, not to mention being screamed at,put down,insulted and cussed at.
In addition to that, they will continually change your schedule, to suit them, I was supposed to take test on Dec, 8th, instructor failed to call as he said he would to arrange meeting time, had to wait and put my plans on hold for a month,to reschedule, I had made other plans,starting the day after test and they called to RESCHEDULE AGAIN for a later date, I could not complete course or take test because of this,again president was no help, you pay up front and then they loose interest in you. STEER CLEAR OF SAGE, search for other reviews on various sites,wish I had before paying these people.
Poor Outside Instructors – The inside instructor taught very well. Then when you get outside and have to deal with the outside instructors it is a nightmare. They have very bad attitudes and yells at the students. Nothing can be done to stop them from doing that as they are only concerned in taking your money. Had to quit due to that problem. President was no help in the matter as well. Look into midlands, may cost more but less attitudes.
SAGE Truck Driving School has an excellent reputation and has successfully trained thousands of truck drivers who have obtained their CDL and started a career as a truck driver. We certainly regret that one student was unable to complete the program. This is unusual since 99% of the students graduate and are pleased with the training. We take disagreements with instructors very seriously, and attempted to resolve the situation. But some students are unwilling to listen or change or act safely. SAGE is rated one of the top schools in the country for a reason. If you ask any trucking company recruiters -- the people who recruit thousands of our drivers to drive their trucks -- you'll find that SAGE graduates are in demand more than any other schools' students. This was an unfortunate and rare case where the stuent was unable to develop the skills necessary to be a safe driver and concluded that trucking was not for them.
