Hey folks, it's been a while!

When you went to upgrade after the 200. What were you tested on? Pre trip?

Just checking in, I haven't been around in a while. About 6 months in here at Swift and things are going well. I want to thank you all here at trucking truth. This site and this collection of awesome people played a huge part in me getting this career off of the ground. Trucking truth rocks!

So like I said, I'm about 6 months in and things are good. I bounced around a bit trying to find an account that worked for me and it's awesome that there is that opportunity at Swift. Started OTR obviously. Did Target for like a week around Christmas helping out with "surge", but decided once the snow started to fall that I'd rather not have to fight the clock to make multiple stops a day AND the weather lol. So I briefly went back to OTR and then asked about the automotive account out of my home terminal. Ran that for a couple months.

As fate would have it my DM ended up getting fired and I happened to end up with the one that runs the Canadian fleet out of New Boston, MI. I asked her about it one day and it turned out she was desperate for capable drivers so I told her I'd give it a shot. It all worked out because I really like this account. Michigan to Ontario everyday, mostly short haul, about 250 miles each way give or take. (Sliding pay scale here so I get more per mile) I get a bonus for border crossing everyday and I get to get home to the wife and kids every weekend for a reset.

Hope all is well around here and again I just wanted to stop by and say thanks!

Swift upgrade test questions.

With the route plan part, is that with a paper atlas or something else to map.

The written test has two parts. First part is matching the correct macros from the Qualcomm. The second part gives you a load assignment and you answer questions about the trip. This includes how much transit time and if you can legally do the load.

The drive part is going out usually with a group and takes about 30 minutes or so. Then when you get back to the terminal you each take a turn backing into the spot they have set up.
