I've been with Swift since the end of December 2018. Since going solo, I get more miles sometimes than I can get to. But, not for once being here have I thought of leaving. Most of the time , I have another load being offered to me before I can unload the one I'm on. The academy from what I have been told by many of the rookies I have encountered is a excellent way of getting your license and a good way of making a living. Though I can to Swift with my CDL, if I had to do it over again I would have gone to Swift's academy. Read as much as you can before you go to the academy. Brett's book is an excellent way of knowing what to expect. Do as many of the pre-trip excercises. Get the KNOWLEDGE that you will be that much further ahead than the other students. Sorry to be long winded.

People say to steer clear of every company for some reason or another. What are the reasons you've been given? I only ask so what it makes it's easier to debunk.

Prior to starting my career, I was told to steer clear of Swift, Western Express and CR England. The people telling me this had never driven for any of these companies. What makes them experts? Some YouTube videos and something somebody said in passing.

You've come to the right place for information. There's a solid representation of different companies here.

thank-you.gif This why I came to trucking truth, for the truth. I am reading your book and it has been so helpful thus far. Thank you and everyone that has replied. The honesty is the best.

Welcome Jaimie.

Swift Transportation's paid CDL training program is an outstanding program, and they're an excellent company to work for. In fact, they're the largest carrier in the nation. They have tons of opportunities, great equipment, lots of money behind them, and a ton of experience bringing new drivers into the industry.

I always recommend that you take advice from people who will help you focus on making yourself better. This is a performance-based industry. Those who perform make the most money and get treated the best. Those who don't perform make far less money and tend to jump around from company to company because they always think the company is the problem. They're always out there warning people about bad companies, when in fact it's their own poor performance that's holding them back, not the company.

So ignore all of that baloney. Prepare yourself now for a great start to this career. Go through these resources so you have the right expectations and the knowledge you'll need to pass your exams and do your job when the time comes:

Jaimie...welcome to the forum.

Please go through with your commitment with Swift. The advice you received is 100% false.

I have driven for Swift 6+ years on a North East Regional Dedicated Walmart Grocery Account delivering to stores, Sams Club and picking up back hauls from various vendors. Swift is a highly successful Walmart Transportation partner and has a 10+ year history in this geography. Do you think Walmart would award, repeatedly extend a contract and expand the territory of a company that a new drivers should "stay away from"? No.

All kinds of people claiming to be experts will give you advice about trucking; most of them do not have your best interest at heart and typically have no clue about the actual company or topic they are "trash talking". I was trained by Swift at one of their company schools in Richmond VA. Training was top notch and effectively prepared me to pass the CDL tests. Further road-training (Mentoring) prepared be for the rigors of trucking. I have zero regrets with my decision, no intention of looking elsewhere, thus highly recommend Swift to anyone either starting out or even a seasoned veteran.

Happy to provide you additional truthful and accurate information once you've had an opportunity to digest what has been written thus far.

Good luck and stick with us...we are here to help you.
