    Swift or Central Refrigerated

    After looking over many forums and doing a lot of research I think I am going to go with either Swift or Central Refrigerated for my paid cdl training anyone got any sort of advice or comments they want to add about the two I should take into consideration while thinking about which one to do.

    a guy named jerry moyes is the founder and majority shareholder of swift he doesnot own the co anymore but owns the majority of the co's stock. he bought central from a guy named dick simon who went bankrupt back around2001. the co was dick simon trucking jerry changed the name to central and gave controll of it to his daughter and her husband whos name is john issacson he runs the day to day operations. so basically yes its all in the family and i recomend to stay away from this family. but thats just my opnion you may love it there and marry in with them. and no swift does not own central they are two seperate oddities run independtaly of each other.
