Recruiting Lead (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 6, 2016
Recruit Leads are responsible for the drivers that their group hire. I still hire drivers, but I am over a team that covers different regions. Each driver that is contacted, I have to make sure their paper work is in order, their legal status are cleared, their back ground checks are correct, and that their training is taken care of.
I've been with company for 10 years, I've seen the many changes, witness many variables that effect the companies; law suits, closing offices, holiday seasons, etc... but I've manage to stay ahead of the curve
Again being with the company for 10 years, I've had no choice to grow very close with my coworkers and their families over the years
hardest part of my job is the slow seasons, there's only so much we can do after we have exhausted all resources to meet our quota
OTR Driver (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – December 5, 2016
Great for a starter driver like i was, the mentor ship program lacks a lot, but use the time to ask questions and practice as much as you can. Best advice is try and drive for someone withing the company, because as a company driver you wont make a lot of money.

Trailer Mechanic (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – November 22, 2016
The coworkers are really helpful , the only bad thing is that the supervisor talk bad to the employ and do not help the worker to success . The supervisor of trailer shop go in the work time to buy food and takes a lot time .
OTR Driver (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 21, 2016
They didn't treat there employees with respect. They made you feel like you were just another number. The pay wasn't good and you had to be away for four to six weeks at a time with two days off before going back on the road.
CDL Class A Driver (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 20, 2016
They are not committed to retaining drivers. There is a revolving door on hiring. Starting out be prepared for not running a lot of miles. Pay is average compared to industry. The only problem is as they say " if you aren't turning you are not earning". They don't keep you running.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Greer, SC – November 18, 2016
Swift was very fast paced and I enjoy that- makes time go by faster. I would recruit driver in office or travel to truck driving schools and have presentations- loved that part of my job- meeting new drivers is always great.
My manager was awesome- while working there my sister passed away and he was great during my tough times through loosing her. loved my co-workers had 2 that helped me when I first started- they knew team work..
the hardest part of my job was getting paid every 2 weeks- It's just me paying the bills so had to make it stretch.
The most enjoyable part was hiring drivers and knowing they had gainful employment.
Have to say here at Swift traveling was my favorite part
Flatbed Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 17, 2016
I lived in the dorms at Swift in Phoenix, Arizona for 3 weeks & achieved my class A license. Shortly after school was completed I went out on the road with a driver trainer for 6 weeks to complete my over the road training. Issued a Freightliner condo and lived out on the road for a couple of years working for Swift as a flatbed driver.
