    I will take a wild guess and say your going with Prime? All of that sounds familiar.

    C R England more respectable than Swift? The others are at least in the same class, but CRE? Not according to the posts I see and talking with many many of their ex drivers and students. Bama you can think what you want about Swift, but you are just flat wrong about CRE.

    Well I'm an official Swifty now,it seems like a good company,just like anything else what you put into it is what you get out,don't start out on the greatest payscale but you get good experiance and support.You may not be starting where you want to be but you will get to where you want to be.they don't just throw you out and say well sink or swim.See you all on the road
     
    Sam Hell, inkeper and bseam Thank this.

    Welcome to Swift and your right you get out of it what you put in, I have been fairly successful with Swift, remember to always communicate with your DL if you develop a good relationship with him/her they will keep you running.
