Best company paid cdl training?

Trucking Truth has Company Paid CDL Training Reviews so check em out!

I have been seriously not only considering starting my OTR career, but I have been preparing for it. Not only have I been studying the Pennsylvania CDL Manual, but I have for the past few months driving a cab in an effort to discipline myself to stay alert while behind the wheel in heavy traffic for 12 hours at a time.

I have been researching different company paid cdl training schools. Including reading reviews and I have to admit that I am no closer to choosing the right company than I was when I started.

Swift, PAM. CR England, Schneider...the list seems limited, each offering pretty much the same thing. While my end goal is to be an owner/op, I don't want to be forced into leasing right out of the gate. I want to be a company driver for my first year.

Any advice from you seasoned vets would be greatly appreciated. And I thank you sincerely in advance...

Trying to decide on the right company

Thanks. I appreciate the advice. And yes Daniel B., with the occupation they decided upon, porn stars are subject to tons of stalkers and they pay very well for someone to drive them from A to B and watch out for them. Hey...it put bread on the table. And the perks were pretty sweet too...lol.

I am reading as much as I can. And that does make sense about the negative reviews. Sour grapes huh ?

Thanks again...y'all stay safe out there.

Trying to decide on the right company

I have thought about getting into the trucking industry for a long time. I've had so many jobs. Bouncer, painter, heavy equipment operator, even been a driver for porn stars in LA. But since splitting from my ex, I'm ready to get a new career started and get my ass out on the road. Got 5 kids to take care of.

My trouble is figuring out what company to commit to. I've talked to many drivers and everyone has a different point of view. I'm thinking about going with Swift. Anybody got any input ?

Any advice will be much appreciated...
