Swift Lightweights

Does Swift offer any incentives for driving Lightweight Trucks like Prime does? I've asked, but they are being very cagey about it.

Reefer Parking

I was watching some trucking YouTube videos and this one guy said that reefer drivers will park in a truck stop backwards, in otherwords, nosed in instead of nose out. He said it was a courtesy to other drivers because the reefer will keep the folks parked next to them awake. I've never noticed this. How common is this practice? Is it any more difficult to back OUT of a parking spot than it is to back into one?

Prospective New Driver...plz help!

So...if I was really interested in driving flatbed y'all's first choice would be...Western Express? Knight, maybe? For the record, I am planning on going company paid CDL training, as I do not currently have a license. I really like Prime, but from what I've heard, they have a very small flatbed fleet. I'll start wherever, but I like the challenge of securing loads. I think of you can do that, you could probably do anything.

Thank you all for the input! Just trying to get some intel on the various types of jobs out there. Freight is freight, I suppose.

Prospective New Driver...plz help!

Hello all! Long time lurker, first time poster! (I still remember Guyjax and I miss his plain and direct method of dolling out advice!) Anyway, I was wondering if there was any difference between the routes for flatbed and reefer. I would think that flatbed would be in less congested areas. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks for all the help!
