I'm telling you now. After 20 years of experienced Driver. Take yourself back to college and forget about the trucking industry.
Swift, aka... Swoof, has got to be the worst chickenshitoutfit I have ever worked for. You will be expolited and enslaved if you sign their 1 year contract agreement. And... if you quit before the one year has expired.
You're done in the trucking industry via the DAC report.
DAC should be illegal, but it's not because it's a private report between corporations and not a public report. A legal loophole for corporations created by their hot shot lawyers and their Congressional lobbyist.
Please! go back to college and get a degree. The trucking industry is not worth your time and suffering. If you don't listen to me now... remember my words. " I told you so and your'll be sorry you didn't lsiten to me!"
Swift is a Fascist Dictaitorship Corporate entity. You'll be expolited, cheated, worked to death, their trip planners will mess with you big time and lie to you, withhold critical data and restort to trickery. You won't get to see home much and they'll cheat you out of home time, too. When they put you in a hotel... prepare for a rat hole and or a dangerous neighborhood in a strange city. Then they will call that your home time. If you take a load going to California, you'll be stuck out there for a week sometimes waiting on a load going east.
I worked 70 hours a week and barely made $350 a week. The cost of eating at truck stops is very expensive. Average about $150. per week.
The trucking industry and the DOT got together to change the DOT regulations to work a driver almost nonstop. If you run out of hours the planners know you are not logging in the company's best interest and you'll get the no good load assignments. That means less money!
CORPORATIONS DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR NEEDS. THEIR NUMBER ONE OBLIGATION IS TO THEIR WALL STREET SHAREHOLDERS TO TURN A PROFIT AT ANY COST!
The cost will be labor cost. That means you will sacrifice and they will profit.
If you can't afford college and don't qualify for a Pell Grant. Try buying and selling under the table. Better yet, apply for social security benefits and take a vacation abroad in another country like I did. Nice to exchange your money for 7 times or more and live like a king on $500 USD a month.
