Swift

I to went through the school but i went to work for a different company,I have my reasons why.But the schooling does you right and not easy but if you are focused you can do it and swift and every other big company has hate from somewhere just the nature of it. Swift as a company is not bad at all

My time at Dart...(The BBQ Sauce Complaint)

Its not part of the physical needed for DOT . The duck walk is part of something that carriers do..not all but most. It is usually the duck walk,climbing up (like into the back of a trailer) and carrying weight and push and pull.

Favorite trucking companies

I have to agree with Daniel on this...I choose the company i went to because it fills the needs i wanted the most.All companies big and small have good and bad..but everyone needs to choose based on what fits you the best.

Countless hours of unpaid work as a company driver. Trucking truth

I dont look at hours except for my allowed hours..Thanks to this site i knew It is more about the miles and not the hours except for those allowed.So yes we sit and sometimes (at least my company) pays for that time i sit.But i look more at my miles i drive

Companies too work for in Virginia area

For OTR you can pretty much go with any company that hires in your area some companies have black out areas depending on the time and the area...Richmond I know has alot of terminals..Swift being one and i think US Xpress and I think Knight as well...Local runs usually you need or they prefer a yr of OTR exp but that depends on company...In short dont base OTR companies just in va...Check them all and check the hiring zone they have if you are in the area they hire from apply.....Good thing about trucking...You can be very mobile
