    Broccelli, welcome to the site and thanks for this thread. I'm actually in the process of getting hired on with Swift. This Tuesday I'll be faxing my H6 to my recruiter and go from there. I like reading threads like this because it makes me think that I'm making a good decision to go with Swift.

    I'm not gonna lie, it's not all roses and butterflies, but no company is perfect. It is what you make of it, and if you have a good attitude/work ethic and a good DM then it can be a pretty good company to work for. Even with a not so stellar DM you can make it work.

    Good luck ten_bucks and I hope you have a good experience with swift. Remember: you get out what you put in and if you work hard then the company will treat you well.

    Time to give a little update. After faxing 6 more forms and two recommendation letters from friends to my recruiter I'll be boarding a bus to the Lathrop, California terminal this Sunday. I'm really looking forward to it. Cant wait to get back out on the road.

    Well I picked up my co-driver yesterday and we are working our way to Texas now. Hopefully will be in texas on Saturday if we can t-call this load if not we will be in Cali trying to work our way back to Texas, but at least we are getting some serious miles.

    where did you pu from brocc? Might not be too hard to get it tcalled in Texas or if they even make you tcall in Phoenix then catch a load going back the other direction. If your going after that dedicated then try to talk to someone for that and they might be able to help make it happen to get your over there quicker.

    Yeah I'm gonna call one of the guys at the account when they get in in the morning. The night DM is kinda new so I'll call the morning crew and try to t-call in Lancaster, TX. I got the load from Hebron, ky so we will be running through tx anyways.
