Not bad
Company Driver - Solo - OTR (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 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.

Careless company
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CAJune 6, 2017
Swift is a company that will allow anyone to be a trainer without doing a background check on them. Mental evaluations need to be done on potential trainers before they are allowed to have a student on the truck with them.
Pros
Several Terminals to use
Cons
Not enough pay and not thorough enough of trainer evaluations

Swift Transportation
Solo Over The Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, TX 75134June 5, 2017
Swift Transportation is the LARGEST trucking company in all of North America. If you are looking for ANY opportunity in trucking Swift has it ALL from Local, to Regional, to Flatbed to Dedicated to even the ultimate trucking job: OTR. I am not sure if they do tanker or not you would have to ask management. Anyway, they will train you to get your cdl, and they could put you into a truck in as soon as i think 8 weeks from their driving academy? Someone please correct me if I am wrong on that. If you want a great opportunity especially with little to no experience, look no further than Swift Transportation.
Pros
MAXIMUM Opportunities due to being North Americas Largest truckload carrier.
Cons
Hometime could be a little better OTR, but still a great company nonetheless.

Various Terminal locations that are interesting
Team Driver (Current Employee) –  Gary, INJune 4, 2017
It's a nice starter company to get your experience needed. If you put in the effort to drive the miles and prove yourself, you can receive that paycheck that you deserve.

Okay
Driver (Current Employee) –  Ocala, FLJune 4, 2017
Honestly its been almost 3 months of me working with this company and overall 1 to 5 stars i give it a 2 they dont care about you.
The hardest part is getting home because they always want you to keep driving you literally have to get to the point of losing your cool before they help you

They make you want to quit
Pros

Cons
Not home with family

Between dealing with Driver Managers that did not keep control over their driver and a Terminal Manager that took sides. This was not a positive environment to work in.

Having to fine someone to cover so you can go to the restroom.

Delivering A Better Life
ECT Driver Leader (Former Employee) –  Decatur, GAJune 3, 2017
The overall size of the company holds many opportunities. Alas, a heavy turnover rate results in many of the support teams being understaffed or underfunded. An excellent stepping stone to bettering a career, but not the company to pursue said career.

A very nice place to work.
ECT CSR (Customer Service) (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ 85043June 2, 2017
Working at Swift was a great learning experience. Although my leader had not much clue of her job. It is a high stress job with many duties. The hardest part of the job was trying to keep up with all the Break Screens and emails. Other than that it was a great place to work.
Pros
good pay
Cons
Not family orientated when medical issues arise.

Load problems
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 31, 2017

Pros
Own schedule
Cons
Away from family

This company over pays executives and under pays the people who pioneer the company. You are just a body filling space in the building. no employee value.
Pros
Paid bills
Cons
You have no voice, no room for growth

Just a Number
Company Driver (Former Employee) –  Troutdale, ORMay 30, 2017
When it comes to big companies your just a number. The more people they hire the better they look. Its just a numbers game. Profit and loss statement looks better than working for this company.
Pros
Got to bring your truck home
Cons
paper pushers didn't like the paperwork
