limited experience or violations?

I guess I don't know what kind of trouble you've had, but I do know that my husband had a hard time getting a job with no experience.

The companies that were pre-hiring newbies at his school were Werner, Swift and Con-Way, although con-way wanted teams.

For both Swift and Werner there is a long training period at the beginning, where you ride with a mentor....for Swift it's 6 weeks, without coming home and for Werner I thought it was 8 weeks, and you have to go to Nebraska for the orientation.

Swift does it at the closest terminal to you. Just check around. there are a lot of sites with trucking jobs, only, you have to google it for a list.

I hope this helps. Good Luck!
