Headed to Swift Driving Academy in Kansas City, MO

Well, after what seems like an eternity of research about trucking here and elsewhere, it looks like I'm about to take the plunge. I put in my application with a few companies that have CDL schools and Swift was the first to respond. Of course I'll consider one of the others and report back when and if I get any other offers. But for now I'm gonna go ahead and plan for starting school on June 1st.

My first question is... Has anyone even heard of Swift having a school in Kansas City? It's not listed on their profile here at TruckingTruth. It's not even listed on Swift's website! My recruiter from Swift, Joan, told me she'd be emailing me the details soon. But I'd like some info from anyone that's either been through that school, or even heard of it. Lol

I'm one of those people that try to be over prepared for everything, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Any advice for a newbie? Anyone working for Swift now or in the past wanna give me any advice? I don't mind hearing complaints about them as long as they are valid and helpful to my situation, but I'd rather hear the positives of what I should expect.

Thanks a lot for everything I've already learned from this site. I'm sure it will remain a great resource for years to come. Wish me luck on this next chapter of my life! 😊
