G-Town's Bio

Retired from a 30 year career in computer technology. Finally realized that it was the journey I really enjoyed and not the destination. So in January of 2013 I fulfilled my lifelong love of trucks and driving by enrolling in Swift's Richmond Academy. Graduated, passed the CDL test, and went OTR for 240 hours with a mentor. Once that was completed, I was re-tested by Swift and offered a job. Overall a great experience. I wish I knew about this website while I was contemplating this as a career and while I was in school. Great information exchange.

Fast forward to the current, I am working for Swift as a dedicated driver assigned to the WALMART account in north central PA. Best job I ever had.

Happy to truthfully answer any questions about Swift and/or my experience in school and training.

Joe's new journey....

Welcome Joe.

Swift…? gonna disagree on that.

I was schooled by Swift, mentored (road training) with Swift and drove for Swift on a NE Dedicated Walmart account for 8+ years.

No regrets…if I had it to do over, I’d take the exact same path. I was about your age when I started with them.

My suggestion? Be careful where you are getting your information and consider the source.

Swift, Knight both excellent choices for you.

Another suggestion…

Please invest some time reading and studying these links. It will help you to set realistic expectations and build a solid base of knowledge.

Starting My New Journey with Swift Transportation

We much prefer questions and answers be posted in the forum. That way, everyone benefits.

Thank you.


No worries! I figured you got hung up somewhere. Hope to catch you down the road somewhere!

I do have a few questions about the steps after training regarding DQP, readiness, mentor, home terminal. So much. If you are available to answer some questions, I'd appreciate it.

Stay with it, you can do it. It takes time. As Davy said you are probably focusing on one mirror more, that can cause you to subconsciously drift at times. My current student had that issue. Now that I have him looking at both mirrors equally he is in much better shape. Keep your head moving you have 7 mirrors on that truck. Use them ALL!!!!!!! I have put my number in my profile bio. Shoot me a text with your questions.

Getting the call.

Wow, that’s a bummer.

If you can make it back, don’t delay. Your skills and muscle memory will begin to fade. I encourage you to take that direction.

If you can’t??? Only you can advocate your next move if that’s the case. But if PAM schooled you, please read your agreement them. You’ll likely owe them money.

Good luck.
