    I just got my CDL and school is pushing hard for me to sign on to Swift. I'm located in Arizona. Looking to recommendations as to which company i should sign on with. Any help is appreciated!

    All those I listed hire Arizona drivers and hire new cdl school grads.
    Sometimes websites can be vague about that, so now you know.
    Apply to as many as you want. Some have a "Short App" or "Quick App" on the websites.
    Some, but not all, have cdl school tuition reimbursement.
    Main issue is to choose a company you think you'll be happy with, even if it doesn't have cdl school tuition reimbursement.

    also with the COVID-19 going on right now. Some carriers might not be currently hiring and may have shut schools down temp. FFE is one of the confirmed school is temp closed.

    Been in foodservice the majority of my driving career. McLane. Sygma/Sysco. Started at 22. Best money I've made. Some drivers make 130k out here but, yeah, you'll work for every dime you make.

    Yes. But food service, right now, is gonna see a hit in loads. Since places are only open for carry out.
