My boy friend recently was recruited into a C1training program. The recuter was Rip Charles, a convicted felon which Rip was well aware of! They checked his background and only 1 charge showed up. Let him know there were more than that 1 charge. Because of charges Rip said he couldn't get a company to hire him and pay the tuition. He had tryed all of them to take him on.

No company would hire him after they ran the background check. Which Rip was already well aware of past felonys prior to the truck companys own background check. We gave up on the whole thing since no company would hire him.

Rip Charles contacted us A number of more times finally he calles again and says USA trucking co Has decided that they would hire . He was now elligable 4 C1's program! Finishes his 3 week college course with gpa of 98.8 but on the last day of school the day tuition is due and the day to get your CDL The school officials informed him C1 and USA has said no!

So he was kicked out of school and wouldn't be able to get any of his certificates because C1&USA was not paying! ASU gave him the option to pay it his self and he would then get his certificates and his liscence. then called me I put the$985.00He needed into the bankaccount and he wrote a check to ASU paying the entire tuition and schooling.

Now C1 is threatening they are going to guarnish his wages when he goes to work saying falsified documents when he did no such thing! Rip Charles there so called recuitor knew all to be known which they say lied about which infact he did not It is Just some scam mumbo jumbo lupe hole they are trying to pull to make us pay $4995.00 Which is not owed to them they never paid the 1st cent on school fees infact they were the the ones whom truely are in breach of contract! Get away with their bad buissness practices!

They are out here and on the internet Conning THE ones that don't know no better. I know better. We are not wealthy, scrape to get by but they and other rip off companys like them just try to make us even poorer. How can a person like my boyfriend who is living right doing right but was a wild youngster who done stupid things and payed the price for it by incarsciration. But has not been in any kind of trouble at all in over 10 years and does nothing but try to provide an honest living for his family is paying all over again because companys like c1 are ripping them off and keeping them from being able to work!

The poor like us get poorer and the Rich conartist keep getting richer and taking us honest hard working people for every penny we mioght make please help us if any can! This is not fair that they think there above the law and that they are in the right that they can steal us blind please if any one can help it would be greatly appreciated

#1 Consumer Suggestion

To finish my story

AUTHOR: Troy - (U.S.A.)

Now to finish my story. I told the lady at the billing office there was a mistake! If they knew on the 3rd that I was gonna be terminated, why didnt USA contact the school that day? Instead they waited til the 4th so I would have to pay for physical & tuition! Come to find out C1 training & driver solutions dont pay the school a dime if student leaves the first week for any reason and the school pays for physical, tuition, drug screen etc.. This imformation came from Dale. Seems to me C1 is making a killing sending students home the first week and billing them for something C1 arent paying for! My contract states I must work for USA for one year for them then I owe no tuiton!according to Dale tuition is only $1400.

My contract states tuition,$200 for food & 3weeks in apartment @$21 per day A little less than $5000!You do the math, its not even $2000!What amazes me they send me to ASU 1200 miles from my home at MY expense without even checking with USA to see if they were gonna hire me.Doug Carmen said USA was sponsering my tuition!What a liar!Chrs Welch Im not paying your ripoff company a dime! While at ASU I heard many horror stories worse than mine the short time I was there. Wish I knew then what I know now. Been alot cheaper to put up my OWN tuition. I have a clean driving record,no felonies. I can work for whoever I want!Beware of C1 and driver solutions. Troy OBX NC

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I was also duped by them

AUTHOR: Troy - (U.S.A.)

I also had duped by these people.

My account mgr was Doug Carman who said I was hired by PAM. He checked out my background said I was good to go!I was to report to ASU-Newport Ark.Wednesday before Ileft I followed up with a call to him.He told me their was a mistake that was his fault. He told PAM that I lived near Raleigh NC which I didn't. I live on an island off the coast of NC.

PAM said I live too far away!But no problem USA just hired me. I was worried cause I just left my job. So I arrived May 1st for school. That was orientation day. I was handed a contract to go to work for USA trucking written by C1 training.

Since I was to work for USA I had to pay for my own drug screen. The contract also stated that if I left or was terminated before the 4th I only owed for my room,drug screen, physical etc..

So on the 3rd I was on the range doing backing exercises. I went to lunch at school when someone said I had a note on the board.So I picked it up and read it. It said to call this person at USA.

So I did! All I got was a message said they were out of the office for the day so I left a message saying that Iwas returning their call and would try again tomorrow. So I did the next morning and they were not in yet. So I went to have my physical done with my class.

When I returned a lady from administration told me to call this # so I told her I tried the day before but nobobdy there. So I try again and get them this time. The lady said I had to leave because they were not going to hire me because I applied to the company 2 mos. earlier and was turned down! I was shocked because Doug said I was already to go with USA!

Don't recall applying to them either!Anyway I called Doug to see what was going on! all he could say was 'Sorry Buddy' so went to see yhe head guy at ASU training Dale.He said if I can come up with $1400 I could stay!As it stands now you owe us nothing.

So I packed up and left pissed off. So I headed back to the beach 1200 miles away with no cdls no money and no job. A month later I get a bill stating I owe over $4000 so I call c1 billing said they made a mistake. No you owe this money because you stayed til the 4th I said if i knew the 3rd iwould have left

C1 professional Training center & Driver Solutions Indianappolis Indainna

AUTHOR: Jeanette - (U.S.A.)

Since I have Sent this Report C1 Proffessional Training co. Has contacted My boy friend a number of more times. The president of the company Chris Welsh has himself been in contact with us a couple of times daily. Chris Welsh seems to be a Person of respect and he is doing what he can to do right by us and getting the matter straight! He has personally taken the time to fix the problems of the matter .

There are alot of companys out there who are intentionally trying to rip people like us off because they think they can get away with ripping them off with out a fight!

I do not belive Chris Welsh had and the company he is president of are one of those rip off companys! Chris Welsh has now gotton his recruiters working on finding my boy friend a trucking company that will put him to work!

C1 and Chris Welsh has refigured all the costs and are resending us a bill of the costs which we actually do owe for which are for the DOT physical and $100.oo advance pay they gave to my boyfriend during the school program he attended!

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Resolved After researching it, I believe we honestly felt we could get him a job with USA Truck prior to enrolling him in the program

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

Jeanette's boyfriend, David, contacted me yesterday and expalined his situation. After researching it, I believe we honestly felt we could get him a job with USA Truck prior to enrolling him in the program. Otherwise we would not have brought him in.

Under the circumstances, I agreed to waive any tuition that he owed my company. In addition, our placement person is working to get him a job with another company.

I spoke with David again today and he was very appreciative of our efforts.

We're in business to train people to drive AND to get them jobs. I take that obligation seriously.
