Do ask around and speak with drivers!

You can also get some background on these companies by looking in Trucking Truth's listing: Trucking Companies, and go through How To Choose A Company to make your best decision.

I drive for Swift, but all I know about refresher is that a few of my fellow students had actually worked for Swift before and had to take and pass the whole nine yards of school again to be rehired.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Is that what they mean by Sure Wish I Finished Training?

Thanks for the response. I guess I could ve been more specific, any who I'm trying to get back in the game and just wanted insight, thought about USX but I'm in California and ain't too found of riding Greyhound to Texas, now I'm leaning towards Western. Insight anyone?

I'd say it depends on what you're looking to haul - dry van , flatbed, or refrigerate? And how much home time are you hoping for? Those are all different companies you're looking at with different areas of operation, different types of freight, and different home time options. Once you narrow it down to the type of freight you'd like to haul and how often you'd like to get home you'll likely find the right company for you. That's how I would choose.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
