Swift class start date of Nov. 24th is finally here

Congrats and good luck to both of you. I am looking at Swift as a possibility for myself. I talked to my recruiter at Swift today and I having difficulty where I currently reside in Florida (to far south). Lucky for me my parents own a few condos in Tampa and will rent one to me so I can be better located so companies will hire me. My recruiter at Swift told me to move and change my address to the Tampa home and they will send me to their training site in Tenn. I am scheduled to take my permit on Jan 8th. I look forward to your experiences in school. Brian

So I live in Naples, too far South for Swift, or for many companies to hire me?

Hello!

I forgot a few things.

How many hours are you required to drive per day? Or is it per week, one day you can do 12, next only 6-7? How's that work? AND, I need to get a few bucks while I'm in school! Some were low & a few weren't too bad. I'll do more homework on here, but thought I'd add that in. Best regards, stay safe out there! I was on 75 yesterday, Clearwater, Fl, going home to Naples, it's a WILD RIDE OUT THERE! ALMOST saw a bad accident with two big truckers!

Hello!

First off, WOW..what a GREAT website/forum this is. Full of info..my head is spinning a lil' though. I'm looking into becoming a truck driver...maybe! I'm researching it & thinking about it. I've moved over 25 times over the years & enjoy being on the road..I've lived everywhere, east coast & west coast. I've done a lil' driving, I drove for UPS last holiday season and I was a private driver for a retired business man, using his Rolls Royce Phantom. No accidents! I enjoy driving. I also drove a truck pulling a chipper when I used to do tree work and when I cleaned pools years ago I pulled a short...thingy, I can't recall the name? But big trucks, never.

If I do this I'd like to get the CDL payed for by the company, because I have no money to pay for it. The more they pay the better! I'll just pay them back, no big deal to me. I've checked the companies on here that put you through, but none allow you to have pets! I'd like to get a dog once again. Which companies allow pets? Do all the companies have nice cabins? Or are some not so great? It will be my home on the road so I want the nicest one I can find!

Will I be able to make more than 30 g's my first year? Closer to 40 would be better. Which companies have the best schedule? Most that I saw you only have 1 day off per week..one had a schedule of 4 on 4 off. But I can't recall which one that was.

And do any of the truck stops have gyms? I don't need much, most of my workout I can do with my own bodywt. I have to work out!

One last thing, how are the ladies out there? Haha

Any input is appreciated, I'll keep reading on here, researching. Thanks.
