    When I returned to trucking after an 11 plus year abscence, I did 6 months with Swift to get reestablished. It sucked as expected. I did 6 months, kept my nose clean and moved up to a GREAT carrier. Sometimes you just gotta pay some dues, sometimes you pay them again. Having driven before, I knew the game and played it.
     
    Sandman 660 and Badmon Thank this.

    Swift is rotten. Use them as they use you and move on.

    I like swift. They are one of the trucks I can pass! And they provide endless laughs in the "swift at it again" picture posts.
     
    Gunner75, Bo Hunt, Sandman 660 and 5 others Thank this.

    Gosh. How could someone so smart go with such a terrible company?

    Before I signed with my first company it took me 2 seconds to realize Swift was a bad starter company that I should steer clear of. Literally, 2 seconds of research.

    How did you end up there?

    Something must have made the whole thing attractive.

    What was it?
     
    DoubleO7 Thanks this.

    And me and Dog don't agree on anything, that's how bad of a sham the megas are.
