    You'd be better off researching the forum. There are quite a few threads for each company that you listed. That way you can make a somewhat educated decision on what is right for you.

    Besides, to get any kind of viable answer you would have to find several people that have worked for all of those companies.

    I haven't worked for any of them however based on what I've read on here;

    Watkins Shepard

    Millis/Roehl

    Swift.

    Good luck.

    Not having worked for any of these companies either but just basing my answer on what I have read here and comments from drivers on the road, I agree with this ranking.

    Do your self a favor and run from trucking like it is the plague!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read all the forums on all the companies you can be for making any comitment. Trucking is bad all around now and will be till the econemy get better. All the big companiys are screwing drivers left and right and all the post on this web sit are the proof. I love driving a truck, I hate the trucking industry!
