Fast Paced Office
Driver Leader (Current Employee), College Park, GAApril 23, 2015
I enjoy the fast paced work environment. I enjoy working with drivers in the transportation industry. I manage about 50 drivers a day and assist in making sure they get daily plans and dispatches. I handle the payroll for hourly drivers. I communicate with drivers through the QUALCOMM and phone.

Run Run Run from this company
driver (Former Employee), AtlantaApril 23, 2015
Pros: none
Cons: It's a dishonest business
The training school is a scam. They charge you 4400 bucs to go to a lot in Utah and stand around. I got 20 minutes of seat time and zero classroom training. I did get my license but it wasn't worth what I paid for it!!!!! They get you to sign a contract for payment. DONT DO IT. There are much better options than Swift for training.... The pay is not good either. The driver managers have favorites that they give the miles to. Pay is based on miles. You bump a dock and
I have sat as much as 7 hours waiting for a load or unload. Time that you are not getting paid for unless you count the 12 per hour after 2 hours. Basically no pay... You have other options for training. Community Colleges offer truck driver training now for less than half of what Swift charges.. It's a ripoff! !!!!!

Largest transportation company in the U.S
On-Site Manager / Weyerhaeuser (Current Employee), Henderson, COApril 16, 2015
I have worked for Swift Transportion since 1999 and Ive enjoyed working here throughout these years. A typical day at Swift transportaion is helping internal and external customers with their needs. Ive learned alot from the management through out these years, the positive notes ive tried to make them better and the negative notes i avoid doing to my emplolyees. The hardest part of the this job is reducing turnover.

A job That makes you a number
Diesel Technician (Current Employee), Johnstown, NYApril 8, 2015
I loved my job before Swift took over. They turned our shop into a micromanagement nightmare and destroyed any enjoyment anyone could have. My work load barely changed when Swift took control. It was the demeanor of the higher management, the attitudes of never good enough, the issues with pay among other things.

I worked in the Regional routs promised that I would be home every two weeks, this did not happen. Promised that I would make 50 to 70 a year I was only bringing home $500 a week so less than $30,000 a year. The trucks are good.

A great place to learn to drive a truck
Company driver (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 26, 2015
Pros: instructors are very ernest in teaching you how to drive a truck.
Cons: short home time
Swift taught me well but you get tired of always being away from home. You are away from your family and friends for very long periods of time. You can make good money ,but you never home long enough to enjoy it.

Have the right attitude
OTR O/O Driver (Current Employee), Lancaster, TXMarch 24, 2015
Trucking is not a great job...it's a decent job that many grow to love. It's not easy in the beginning and like most places no one takes you seriously (read competent) until you've been around at least a year or more with no accidents or service failures.

In every business you will have people difficult to work with, the good news with Swift is that you can change dispatchers, terminals, and other issues pretty much whenever you feel the need. Keep in mind however, that this is not a job where you get paid to just show up. It's hard work in the sense that it is a different lifestyle for most people.
