    I wouldn't discount Swift as a potential. Not all have a good experience with them, but some of us do. Their reputation is much worse than they are!
    (BTW, Swift trucks are usually governed at 65mph, Prime 63 mph. Prime trucks are one of the few I get to pass on a regular basis!!).

    Tmc gave me the least bs in recruiting, actively weeded out the lazy and bad drivers and gave second to none load securement training.

    Depending on your eventual desired path, (if you will eventually want to do flatbed) its not a bad way to start

    This was quite a few years ago, but i doubt a whole lot has changed.

    Prime=slow mega style, lot of options on what you can learn to drive: van, flat, tanker.
    TMC=Slow military style, learn flatbed and oversized.
    Wilson=ok I guess from what I’ve heard from the drivers, van only as far as I know.
