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

Issued a Freightliner condo and lived out on the road for a couple of years working for Swift as a flatbed driver.
Driver (Former Employee) – Lathrop, CA – November 14, 2016
working weeks away was difficult for me. At first the new employee is assigned a mentor. Each mentor owns there own truck so each have a set of rules in how to operator their truck. As owners , their main goal is to get miles , more miles ran, the more money the mentor makes. The miles that the trainee is running under the mentor goes to him/her.
