OTR Driver (Former Employee) – Jurupa, CA – June 19, 2017
though I didn't like the lifestyle. I enjoyed the job. sometimes hard to get in tough with management by phone. learned to work by myself. hardest part of job is lifestyle. best part is the driving and maneuvering vehicle around.
swift transportation is ok but they do not get u home all the time.And they could work on management.thier dispatchers are very ruid and do not car about you.all I can say is if u want to be lid to go to swift

night and weekend dispatch is horrible. lack of communication!! would not recommend this company to anyone unless last resort. I will say that they are more than willing to hire new drivers but they allow drivers with little to no experience to train
Comercial Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 18, 2017
Swift did not like to pay for work experience. I began to understand that Swift does not want its drivers to think for themselves. Only the drivers given raises where drivers who were completely dependent on driver leaders on how to think.

Professional Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 15, 2017
I got out the army got divorced. Army put me out in a crazy manner and was give really no options. I had a general under honorable conditions. When I got out I got divorced had to stay with my mom for a few months also to visit. No public transportation in that small country town no jobs and did not want to go back into military life. Truck driving was just a boost to being independent again and decided it was not for me.

Swift is one of the largest trucking company. Swift believes in helping their own. They provide training courses in all area to get an employee familiar with company rules procedures. The people i work with in work comp performed their duties in a respectful.
Company Driver - Solo - OTR (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 8, 2017
The beginning is pretty rough they train you for about a month to get your CDL. If you don't already have one then.Then put you on the road with a mentor for about a month. Once that's over upgrade to solo or team. its pretty rough being OTR Driver at times.
