Professional Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Greer, SC – October 18, 2017
Swift Transportation LLC, has a good working atmosphere that promotes safe driving and operation of their trucks. Working with Swift enables you to experience some of the wonders and surprises of traveling long distances from point to point on a run.
Hardest part of the job is being away from family and friends for one to two months at a time.
on the job training and licencing, good pay and benifits

stay away from this company, they will run the shoes off your feet and have your look the flintstones. training sucks and they try to keep out as long as possible before you can your truck. and if you do not drive team the will give you little miles a possible.

OTR Company Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 15, 2017
Take on new drivers easily Rush through orientation but with lots of waiting, doing nothing. They set you up with a mentor that may not may not suitable. They rush through 6 weeks and push you into a truck that is oftentimes not up to par. They pressure to go beyond your comfort safety. Then about the time you should be trained you may have detriments to your lisence and boot you off with a bad reputation.
ECT Member (Dispatcher) (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – October 14, 2017
The job itself was good. I worked as part of the extended coverage team that operated the AS400 dispatch program and filled in for driver managers that called in sick. The office area was cramped and everyone who came in sick passed it around to everyone. My biggest memory of that place was a case of bronchitus that too 2 months to kick.
OTR Class A driver (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – October 13, 2017
Dispatchers and driver managers play favorites on load offerings, they excpect you to be awake and available for dispatch 24/7 even if they are aware you havent slept in a couple days. great starter company but get your experience and run
builds class a experience
low pay, favoritism, poor hometime, dispatch punishes for setting home time
Average company to work for. the only problem with swift was the process for getting loads and too many messages on qualcom while trying to drive was a distraction. The qualcom constantly going off. I was not there to long because the truck they gave me had been wrecked and the drivers door would not properly close and in the winter it was too cold trying to drive and freeze. They also treated you like a number and not a driver.
Mentor and assist any shop personnel (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – October 7, 2017
the manager is a previous trailer mechanic that still carries on with everyone in such a disrespectful manner but refuses to let anyone talk to him the same way. if you do hes very vindictive and will essentially start the process to move you out or find way to fire you. honestly the job is amazing, but the work environment is awful and causes people to hate their jobs
Driver Manager (Former Employee) – Menasha, WI – October 7, 2017
Office environment was very stressful and everyone was after each other to blame someone for one thing or another. Not a team oriented place. The terminal manager would come up with improvement idea's but then would never implement them.
