    I had the money so I paid the balance when my truck was assigned, but I'm pretty sure they would work with you whatever your circumstances as long as you understand it NEEDS to be repaid. BTW if you stay in the hotel you'll get a bill from the hotel every week

    Copy that. How long did you stay with them? Swift is also in Phoenix, but apparently they are merged companies now, so don't know if there's any difference going with one over the other.

    I was was with them about a year or so. Hauled cans between L.A./ Longbeach & Phoenix/Las Vegas and sometimes down toTucson.
    Took home around $750 a week Mon. thru Fri. Left on good terms with a 2 week notice because wife wanted me home more. They invite me back from time to time. I politely decline.

    That was a very wise decision.
    1)
    With all the stresses and time pressures that a truck driver has, this is one less serious stress to worry about, especially in this case, NOT having to worry about owing your employer money.
    2) Some years back, I was thousands of dollars in debt. By the GRACE OF GOD, I was able to pay it off, along with putting money away for both retirement and any emergency that may crop up.

    Good luck to you. God bless you and your entire family!

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

    The absolute sheer driving force of our national economy - without truck drivers, our entire national economy would come to an absolute standstill - if not outright be dead.

    Over the mountains, through the woods, into the valleys, coast to coast, from sea to shining sea - truck drivers can and do go anywhere and everywhere, every day, all year round.

    It's on your dime, so you can stay anywhere you can afford. Arrange your own transportation. Be on time:D

    You won’t be locked in with Knight, they don’t force you to sign a contract that won’t let you drive for other carriers.

    What they will do is charge you the balance of whatever remains on your tuition and possibly sue you if you don’t pay it off, but being able to pay off your debt while working for another company Is not as bad a signing a contract like some training programs will do.

    Look, your first year is going to suck no matter where you go. Knight is one of the least bad starter companies.

    Suck it up, get a year of safe driving under your belt and many more doors will open.
