    I went to MTC last year to get my CDL. Didn’t Mack look into any other schools they could have teamed up with? I am quite sure there are far better ones out there they could have talked too. MTC was a huge disappointment, but I did get my CDL. Their living conditions are terrible and the school is after one thing: to make money at all cost. They should have checked out forums and the rip off report website to make their decision.

    Hi Matt: Apparently they did not. Were you able to land a job after completion?

What do you have to say about this?
