Thanks good advice

Take the time to listen all the way through this podcast. It's got some great information that reinforces my comments above.

Are Major Carriers Nothing More Than Starter Companies?

Concealed carry permit, reciprocation.

What was your point then? (Is it a full moon?)

You asked for opinions; instead you got facts. Sorry, that’s how it works here.

Concealed carry permit, reciprocation.

Once again I am not asking if I should or would be able to carry a gun. I do not and will not carry on my truck. I wish you could edit or delete post's on this forum.

As others have said - it's against most company rules, and most shippers/receivers also prohibit them.

Also - many states you might travel through (especially NE) have some pretty draconian gun laws - the risk is very good if you get caught with one - you WILL see some jail time, and you will be a CONVICTED FELON and forfeit your right to own firearms.

So pretty much EVERYONE is going to recommend that you LEAVE IT AT HOME.

From a practical standpoint - if you have to HIDE IT, then it is of little use in a critical defense scenario anyways.

So despite the fact that your AZ CCW is reciprocal in more places than it is NOT, the risk to your career and/or freedom is a decision ONLY YOU CAN MAKE.

New Swift Driver Wanting to Switch

First off did you macro 22 the load or just show up late? If you are going to be late macro 22 and let driver manager know. Hang in there get your experience like a I am doing and go from there.

Sorry for the late response, the company gave me very tight deadlines for my first 2 loads and I was late both times., couldn't help not being late. They gave me an 8 hours window to drive 583 miles...the first load I was late because the tractor I was given was leaning one way, and the frame was twisted. Been sitting at least a third of the time at the moment...

Maybe it is like you've said, I'm still adjusting. They put me in a 2016 Freightliner and my anxiety is skyrocketing because of the safety blitz.

My recruiter gave me wrong information so I was kinda roped into the dedicated account my mentor was on which is Otr one way and dedicated the other way. I really do want to stick it out at least 6 months...please tell me it gets better lol

New Swift Driver Wanting to Switch

I am currently on my fourth month with Swift. You need to build your experience to change to a better smaller company. Warning all companies have good and bad things. As for switching to a dedicated or regional. Talk to a driver planner not a driver manager or fleet manager. I am sticking with over the road for now. I miss my wife and home a lot but good experience. My frustrations with Swift is they keep running me regional and local dedicated type runs, very frustrating.

Hey all, been browsing this site for awhile and decided to train at Swift...finished schooling and mentorship and am in my 2nd week of solo driving. My question is, how do I go about asking to switch to a pure dedicated account where I can get home weekly or every other week?

I'm also considering switching companies, solo driver on a dedicated or regional account where I can get home weekly or every other week. Any input on where to go? Just so frustrated with Swift right now...I just don't know what to do but know that I'm frustrated with the company and my friend is considering leaving too...

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!
