Knight or Swift?

I live in South West Fl. and am considering [...] either Knight Transportation or Swift Transportation. [...] Anyone with experience with either company's schooling/training, and miles have any input? I'd like to hear from anyone who can offer an experienced opinion.

Special thanks to the staff of this website. I have used it extensively for researching my options as a driver. The info has been extremely helpful.

Thanks,

Pete

Greetings and blessing from Father Victor! Forgive me for resurrecting an old thread but it appears I am currently in Pete's situation, sorta. I've been out of the truck for about six years. Long story short: I am [was] also a Dean of Liberal Arts and as everyone knows, university jobs are drying up, I got laid off, and so here I am thinking about Swift versus Knight.

Another long story short: I've been in and out of trucks since 2001; that's how I worked my way through a PhD in English and another in anthropology. I've done over-the-road, regional, and dedicated. For a couple of years I even tried being an owner/operator but gave that up REAL quick.

But getting back to the subject at hand, I thank everyone here for contributing to the discussion, as it is helping me settle on Knight. I just hope they don't mind a broken-down old First Nations Orthodox priest / Dean of Liberal Arts.
