After great help here in the Forums, and no return Information from Roehl. I now decided I am gonna start my journey with Swift. Every Information to the training and just in General about Swift is appreciated. I have one big stone out of my way, today i got my 2 Year DOT Physical. Now I'm finishing my High Road Cdl training on here, and as soon as I feel comfortable I go to get my commercial learner's permit. Then the journey with Swift can go on.

My girlfriend is standing 100% behind me. The rest of my Family is trying to convince me that i would be better of with a second job to my full time job, just to get bills paid. So how i gonna handle the situation with them I dont know yet.

Thats all for now i really so far have just good experience with my Swift recruiter so i hope this continues.

Oh Rainy visiting my Post, I'm feeling honored. Seen allot of your advice and comments and most everything was straight to the point.

I think your right. I need to make the decision whats right for me and a decision that gives me the option to provide for my girlfriend and kids.

At the moment I'm still studying the High Road Stuff on her, and in my brakes from that I am searching the net for more information about Swift. What I'm trying to find out at the moment is when I'm getting paid the first time, i guess if i cant find a answer i just gonna do my cpl testing and then when i call the recruiter to line everything up, just gonna ask her.

Perhaps the worst thing you could do on your breaks. If you are looking for confirmation, the internet is NOT going to help and/or provide truthful/useful information. You'll be reading about the failures of many disgruntled former employees unwilling to accept personal responsibility for their mistakes. Beware!

As far as your first pay check? Swifties get paid every Friday. Payroll closes 23:59:59 PST every Sunday night. For example the work I did last Sunday (Christmas Eve) is included in tomorrow's paycheck. You'll be paid once you are road training with your mentor.

Yes sad about Roehl because that was the first company i was Interested there Program sounded good with training. But there's no way of getting in contact with my Recruiter, so that is just a bad Situation.

That would be awesome. Because i would like to get things moving. Only Problem is that Brad seems to be a busy Recruiter, because i never reach him for anything.
