    Listen pal, Imma gonna give it to ya straight. If you got kicked out of Swift, a crap hole that anyone with a pulse would look like a rock star? Then, you don’t stand a chance in this industry. You need to seek out a fulfilling career in emptying trash cans at your local McDonalds.

    This is just my opinion. But, I went through the Swift Academy in Phoenix. Swift doesn't hire you or guarantee you a job because you went to their academy. My guess is something about your personality lead them to believe you would be too much of a risk. If that was the reason, then probably won't tell you because it might open them up to some liability if they did. Gonna make it hard to figure out. IDK. I wasn't there, I'm just guessing about something that might make sense given what I do know. So, you may need to give yourself a good stare in the mirror. Perhaps you can talk to some of thenother students and get a jest of whether you may have been too much of a pain or not. IDK.
    Regardless, good luck to you!!!!
    Bean Jr. and Chinatown Thank this.

    This sounds about right.

    Another possibility is that you said/did something to an instructor or student that they took the wrong way... maybe even a way completely different than what you intended.

    Swift's refusal to tell you indicates that they are afraid of being sued... they got rid of you to head off being sued by whomever you offended, intentionally or not. They won't tell you because they hope you'll go away, and won't give you any information you might use to sue them.

    If you really want to know, sue Swift for the material damage they have done to your future job prospects and they will have to disclose exactly what happened during the discovery phase of the lawsuit. Lawsuits cost money tough.... a lot of money. I doubt seriously a lawyer will take this case on contingency... they are too busy suing trucking companies for minor accidents because there is a 1 million dollar pot of gold in the insurance nearly every truck carries... soon to be a $2 million pot of gold thanks to the Democrats. A lawyer will not invest in your little thing. If you really want to know, pull some money out and pay the legal fees it's gonna take.

    Better to just move on.
    Bean Jr. Thanks this.
