Dispatch/ Customer Service (Former Employee) – Jurupa, CA – June 23, 2017
Swift is an awesome place to learn grow and excel. Very friendly and family oriented team members. Working for Swift was very rewarding. If you have no experience Swift is the place to be they will give you a chance and train you to be the greatest team player.

When I started with Swift things were a lot different than they are now. Now it seems like all management cares about is numbers. They are less worried about quality repairs. As with anywhere else management have favorites. They are constantly breathing down your neck with questions like "What are you doing right now" when you're obviously turning a wrench on a truck. Expectations are always changing so be prepared to be told you are doing something wrong constantly. Upper management steps over shop managers and foreman. Don't be surprised if upper management comes out in the shop and starts giving orders.

Job was pretty easy for me I would say. Being able to drive long distances for a long period of time I was usually away for about 3 weeks then come back home for 3 to 4 days then back out again OTR trucking is not only a job but it is a lifestyle. You do get to see a lot of the countryside and that was one thing that I did enjoy. Being in different environments
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.
