Default swift or schnidder

Schneider is the better of the 2. Swift does not care about their drivers. Swift is ok to learn to drive, but after 6 months, get out.

Default Why

did I think this ^%$&# had worked for these companies? Have you tried Crete, CRE, Werner, IMX, JB,Trucks for You, Rising Fast( I think their ascent was delayed), Schaffer, Sunflower, Wiley Sanders, Barr-Nunn,Willis Shaw,Maverick,ICC, CRST, Foreway also ?? I hear they are the bomb.

Default my career didn't start too swiftly

I had to make a similar choice last year...Swift and "Company B". Well, I wish I'd gone with "Company B". By the way, "Company B" might be calling me today to say I can come to their orientation. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Keep in touch,

Default Swift

IF you go with Swift, after 6mo or so, try to move into HDS or Digby, I hear that they are much better, and will intercede for you if you have problems with Swift.
I'd pick Schneider.

Default Yeah,sure

Spoken like a true, six month veteran.

How many trucking jobs, that you have had personally, are you comparing this great observation to ?

But hey, it's a paid vacation !!

Default Tks

For the comment - and all the others, appreciate it - - even sixtyniners, I think! :)

Seeing as how the first company can be so important, the choise deserves some time but getting good info is not simple, it seems.

Again, tks.
