    Hello, Everyone. I am looking to get into trucking and the Swift training school is here in Kansas City. I am currently filling out my application and cannot for the life of me remember or find definitive information in regards to my work history past 5 years ago. They require 10. How crazy about this are they? Can I just guess at some rough dates? Anyone with experience here able to help me out? Thanks!

    Don't waste your time applying to Swift.
    Save yourself the hassle and ridicule.

    Find another company that offers CDL school and training..

    Ask around on here and you can find a few good carriers.

    Try and stay away from the mega carriers..

    This one doesn't train in KC, but does have a terminal nearby. Don't know where they will send you to school. Several schools scattered around:

    Here's a good one that trains in Cabool, Missouri.
    Students that go there say the food provided is food for a king.

    I enjoyed my time at Prime Inc. It's in Springfield, Missouri. Just my .02 cents.

    Also you should be able to get a copy of your transcript from IRS.gov for free.
    That should get you started on your job history.

    Did you keep copies of all your W-2 forms with copies of your all your federal & state income tax returns? If so, copies of your W-2 forms going back to 10 years, or further back than that, could fill this work history requirement that you are being asked to submit.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    I would recommend Wilson Logistics, but you need a perfect driving record and a good score.

    Wouldn't sneeze at WDT, either.
