Pros: it is a legal company, always taken care of, stability, great company to start with!
Cons: stay away from the owner op side at all costs, not worth it!
They tend to have the worst owner op program on the road today, taking full advantage of desperate drivers trying to move up. They do however offer assistance so long as there is a way for them to profit from an already profiting position. They hold a portion of your money in an account if you go over 10k miles a month but you can keep that money and – more... put it towards your next lease if you plan to own the truck, otherwise it will just accumulate until you do decide to own it. Most of the students that I have seen recently are all lacking in common sense so just because your a mentor does not mean your going to bank. I have been with the company for more then 6 yrs and I have seen some of the most incredibly stupid people come and go. This company is a really good start for people starting out in trucking and not sure where to start. I have noticed that Swift does offer one of the best training programs available for such a cheap price. Swift is at this point profiting from the government and not the avg individual in this case. I have noticed that Swift students appear to be better trained and better suited for the road then any other half fast company out there. – less
