Why trust our Recruiters?

For starters, any recruiter caught giving bad information to a driver is forced to sing either Beyonce's "Single Ladies" or Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" to the whole department. If it happens a second time, the offender gets a jail style tattoo of their boss on their bicep...
...we've never had a third offense.

Jokes aside, our team is laser-focused on helping you understand the real facts and advantages here at Forward. Drivers always find out the truth, so that's what we give them up front, and the truth is we've got a pretty sweet deal—sweet enough that our annual turnover is less than 30%. That's 60% better than the industry average, so we must be doing something right.

Give us a call. We'll shoot straight and won't steer you wrong.
