Driving for Swift?

Swift has a training program where I drive for them for 26 months after receiving my CDL. Does anyone have any experience with them? I get they are made fun of based on all the memes you see online, but that represents a very small percentage of their company. I want to get my CDL, I have been operating large machinery for years and have pulled hot shot trailers, I know I can manage a semi-truck with no issue especially after training.

Wrongfully Fired?

So I got my CDL about a year ago, noobie here. I had the hardest time getting hired, finally found a job hauling LTL in the Houston TX area, got 2 week training and my second week in I get in a small accident. No injuries thankfully. When we were unloading at a warehouse, a forklift driver from the bay next to me was backing up and hit the front of the truck, broke the headlight and tore up the bumper. Their manager was very cool and said they would file a claim to pay the damages. 1 week later it turns out the accident was my fault because my truck was about 3 inches outside of the yellow strip line and I have no work. Should I fight this? This is bull, is it like this everywhere?

I need advice. I do not have the best driving record. I got a DWI several years ago and have 2 speeding tickets. I am 3 years sober, my speeding ticket on was because I was about 5 miles over on the passing lane. The company I was working shut down and now nobody wants to hire me. I have applied at about 30 companies and nobody calls. What can I do to help clean my record?

Hi Everyone, my name is Al, I am the forum Admin for Truck Land. Even though I have 20+ years working around trucks just when I think I have seen it all, I am always surprised. I am excited to get to know you all and am looking forward to discussing many trucking topics with you all. Reply to this thread introducing yourself, share your background in the tucking community or if you are new, where you see yourself in 5 years. Please remember to read our forum guidelines, be safe, be nice and let's help each other out, because if we do not, no one else will.

Forum Rules

We Are excited to have you join us on the Truck Land forum. The fastest way to grow your knowledge, learn the tips and tricks is by communicating with other likeminded members in the trucking community. Feel free to share your knowledge, past experiences, stories, precautions or any advice. Do you have a question? Be sure to ask the community. Here are our Forum Rules and Guidelines.
Forum Rules
1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums
These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.
Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.
DO NOT ASK for email addresses, phone numbers or money.
Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.
2. Do not post copyright-infringing material
Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.
3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images
4. This is a Trucking Industry related forum. Please keep the topics related to trucking.
Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.
This is a web site for Trucking enthusiasts and professionals.
4. Do not cross post questions
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.
5. Do not PM users asking for help
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.
6. Do not ask or seek or send any payment or any type of aid or compensation on this forum or through direct messages. We are not responsible for the outcome if you send any type or payment.
7. Remain respectful of other members at all times
All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.
However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.
General Posting Guidelines
We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.
1. Please use SEARCH first! There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just type in keywords related to your question in the search box or try viewing posts in your category of interest.
2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use “incoherent” topic names
PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem or statement IN THE SUBJECT.  (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).
Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.
Here is a good example of a way to post a question
“30 year experience truckers advice to new drivers”
Which are some great companies to work?
Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with remarks such as
“if you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.
Remember we are a community and this forum is here to help each other out, please be kind.
Am I allowed more than one account?
No, there is no reason why you should have more than one account. If you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address will be blocked from the forums.
Becoming a moderator
If you are interested in becoming a moderator, you may apply. All moderator applicants must be a member for at least 90 days (3 months) and have at least 100 posts.
You must be generally active in the forums and regularly create and respond to threads in those forums.
You must be polite and helpful towards other members and give advice whenever needed and whenever possible.
You must visit the forum each day, actively take part in discussions as often as possible, ideally once a day, setting a good example to the other members.
You must also maintain a working knowledge of the subject matter.
Please be aware that applying to be a moderator does not guarantee acceptance and that moderators will only be appointed when needed.
Current moderators and administrators will review applications and decide if the applicant fits the position. Administrators have the final say and we reserve to right to refuse applicants with or without cause.
