I wouldn't accuse them of misleading you. Companies can sometimes go from 'Hiring' to 'Not Hiring' in the blink of an eye in some locations. You can call them next week and they might be hiring. It's common for their website to not updated instantly.

We are in the slow season right now. I bet if you wait until Spring they'll be all over you. But honestly, I wouldn't be angry at the recruiter. They don't make the final call of where their hiring zones are. Their job is to bring in student.

By the way, you're going to have many obstacles that will frustrate you on your way to a solo driver. It worries me that you're getting this worked up about something so minor. Good luck sir!

Sorry to worry you didn't know this was the slow season? It just seemed strange that SWIFT accepted me and today got call from CRST recruiter(wasn't at home,wife took the message). Just don't want to run teams,but may have to? SWIFT looks more and more like my best choice? Was just trying to get the best start I could, Just have to take everything in stride!!!! I see all these jobs on job links for my area and assumed they were correct ? I thought they would have someone dedicated to keep their information up to date ? As a computer geek I know its so easy to do! Thanks for the advice and GOD Bless

Hey man, if you don't want to team drive then don't go for it. I personally will not team drive. Don't rush things and just take your time with this process.

Get your permit now using our High Road Training Program and find the company that is right for your needs.

Remember, you're going to be with this company for a year so make sure it's a fit.. You don't want to be miserable for that entire year.

If you think Phenix, Al. is tough to get a hire out of - try FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (yeah - good luck with that).

Understand that you were frustrated with the Millis recruiters - but PATIENCE is the name of the game in this industry - especially when you are just starting out.

Congrats on getting an acceptance with Swift. I'm sure a number of the "training companies" out there hire out of that area.

And remember - PATIENCE IS A KEY REQUIREMENT.

I was going to mention that.....not only is it the slow season, but you're right on the edge of the hiring territory. Companies will indeed fluctuate their hiring requirements based upon current driver demand. Sometimes they will hire out of a certain area but they restrict the number of drivers they'll carry from that area at any given time because there's just not enough opportunities to get drivers home.

Oddly enough, you might call them in three days and find out they're hiring from there again. You just don't know.

But hey, Swift is an awesome place to get started so it looks like you're good to go.

But I want to agree with the guys above.......getting started in trucking is an extremely difficult and often times frustrating experience. Keeping your cool and talking to the people that run these companies in a calm, respectful manner is critical. They're office personnel after all. Their culture is completely different from the blue collar culture. I grew up in a multi-generation blue collar family - steel mills, auto factories, farms, etc - I learned the hard way when I first got started in trucking that as soon as you start raising your voice or say anything in a threatening way those office people shut down like you flipped a switch and you can forget having anything go your way from that point on.

So keep your cool. I'm an Italian from New York. If I can learn to do it, anyone can!

I KNEW IT!! "Hey, I'm walking here!!" Can't hide your roots, eh? I worked with some Italian NY guys at that nuke plant on the Hudson about 90 miles up from NYC . . . they kept using the F bomb and I finally had to say, "How do you spell that?? I've never heard it pronounced quite that way before!" . . . neatest bunch of guys you ever met but they sure did live up to the stereotype NY blue collar guys . . .
