I am not trying to be negative {about Swift} I just don't want you to have a bad experience like many others have in the past.

Not trying to be negative? So recruiters will sign up anybody that they can? And the recruiter will keep their recruiting job because of quantity, who cares about quality?

Each company has their hiring standards as far as job history, tickets, etc. But even Swift has standards for candidates.

Your comment about buying your own ticket home is for people who, if I remember right, fail the drug test or such. If someone fails out, they get a ticket from Swift to get home. I saw that happen during my Swift classes. And this goes for most other companies, not just the ones your not too negative about.

I dont know this for a fact but I have read many forms. swift recruiting will tell you any thing to get you tru the door. This is the job of a recruiter. They dont care if you quit your job or have to waste 5 days of your life before they send you home. You will have to buy your own bus ticket back as well. If I was you a would call swift management,fax your DMV report and get a for sure on that they will take you.I am not trying to be negative I just don't want you to have a bad experiment like many others have in the pass.

Dm:

Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Did you gadulate high school ? If so you can get a 5000 $ pell grant from the government and not have to pay a dime back. You can go to any cdl school you would like. Once you get a cdl a lot of company's will take you and over look your past a lot more.

To add to Errol's point, the recruiter only gets their commission on the people SWIFT actually hires. Fairly certain this is consistent with every company. Makes zero sense to knowingly recruit a person that ultimately will be rejected early on. Recruiters are crazy busy and cannot waste their time courting un-qualified candidates.

I went through SWIFT's hiring process, they check everything and frankly the experience I had with my recruiter, was quite positive and truthfully spot-on.
