Hey folks. It's been a few months since I got hired on with Swift. I went to their c1 school in indy if you remember.

Just a catch up , I went otr for a few weeks, didn't like it too much. I was sitting a lot.

I asked and they delivered! They sent me to Moberly Walmart Dedicated. I found my calling. I did 3 months there before switching to Johnstown NY dc. I get home every week now. The paychecks are awesome.

As a whole, I would like to thank trucking truth. Yall straight up told the facts.

(To you would be Lease operators, dont do it..... my buddy is a lease with swift. Can you live on $7 a week?)

Swift has out right done good by me. And I will continue to perform for them. As a company, they operate like anyone else, to make money, but the people here go out of their way to help you out.

So again. Thank yall, and I'll still be snooping around here every now and then.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I covered Moberly Dairy-Deli-Frozen for two weeks. That was a great experience, then I figured I should be getting home (Memphis). Having the Walmart right next door was the best!

Congratulations, Techit!

You still around? Just going thru some older diaries, and wondering if you are still on the same run, and/or with Swift. Stop back~!!
