I don’t speak for Red. My opinion is Swift will hire all but the bottom 25% of drivers. If you live near a Swift terminal or a major customer of Swift that will make taking home time much more convenient and/or frequent. Thete are good drivers that started & have stayed with Swift.
The reputation of Stevens Transport is “nice trucks, no miles”. There are at least 2 requirements for good paychecks. 1) Good rate of pay, and 2) 2500 – 3000 miles pet week. The nature of refrigerated freight, called reefer, is long time spent at customers & odd appointment times. That’s regardless of which reefer company.
I suggest you check out TheTrucketsReport.com and read about Swift & Stevens. Both companies are discussed in depth. If you read anything from @ChinaTown you can rely on it.
