What a complete moron... Are you kidding me? Swift clearly states how much money training is going to cost you... In addition to the training the instructors are there to help you. When you are doing your pre-trip training the drivers practice over and over again until they get it right and the instructors are there to ask questions. If you had difficulty with the pre-trip it is your fault... Where did you get your info... Yes, the training cost you $3, 900 dollars... But with your simple math you idiot you did not take into account that you don't have to pay $3, 900 up front nor the $500.00. They take this money out of your check. $37.50 per check. After 13 months that equals $1, 950. Swift forgives the rest. Here, I cut and pasted from Swift's web site how the driver training program works...

" The Cost of the Program is $3900 and the optional housing is an additional $500. The Tuition payment is Aprox $37.50 per Paycheck after 13mo you will have paid $1950 Swift will match your $1950 to pay off the Tuition. From that point forward you will start to be reimbursed that money so by the time your w/Swift 26mo you will have been fully Reimbursed your $1950 and your School is FREE. If you don't need Assistance w/the Tuition you can pay $3900 upfront and Swift will Reimburse your ENTIRE $3900 after just 6 months of Employment." Hey idiot... Go to Swifts' web site and get the truth.

You idiot.. Swift is not making $68, 000 a week. Most students do not pay the tuition up front and after one year Swift matches your Tuition of $1, 950. Then after 13 months Swift reimburses the $1, 950 over the next 26 months. Which means your school is free. Stop telling lies. 90% of the people that attend there training program pass. The person that posted this comment must be very uneducated or has a learning disability. What a moron. Do not listen to this idiot that posted this negative comment.
