I applied to Swifts CDL training program about a week ago and I haven't heard anything from them yet and when I try calling the recruiter I don't get an answer. Does it usually take a while to get into one of these programs? If anyone can help me out I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

The time can vary depending on your application. Mondays tend to be one of the worst days to get in touch with recruiters because they are dealing with people going to orientation or arriving for the academy. You also need to remember there was a holiday in there as well.

My guess is it probably had something to do with Thanksgiving last week. I know I took 5 days off and will do something similar around Christmas.

See if you hear from them tomorrow or call them back. I'm sure the recruiters are playing "catch up" due to the holiday. I know our recruiters at my company took off Thursday-Sunday and came back in this morning.

In the driver pulse app. It should tell you who your recruiter, and processor is. There is a message option next to each name. Message your recruiter. You will get much faster responses, that way. It is easier to read a message and type out a response, vs taking to a hundred people a day on the phone.

That's weird. I sent in my application for Swift and called them 5 minutes later lol. My recruiter got me set up for school and everything within a few days.

I agree with the general consensus that it's just because of the holidays.
