west side is swift with a different logo
OTR Driver (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – August 4, 2016
My father died alone because of west side. I told them I needed to get home instead they made me do a day cabs job and move trailers from yard to yard. So I was out of drive time 200 miles from my dad. I would have made it if they would have sent me home when I was already empty. The pay commitment is a joke. If you are in the sleeper to long, on home time, or whatever other new reason they come up with you will not get it. You'll pretty much never make a 600 dollar check. The cash advance that they say can only be used for the truck comes out of your check. They don't reimburse toll useless its in the route they choose for you. They don't always give you the numbers needed to pick up so, you spend an hour arguing with them and the shipper. You do not get holiday pay until a year. At a year its Christmas only then at two years its Christmas and new years,etc. The staff is flat out rude. They want it their way and thats that even if it includes you going over drive time, being over weight, or using broken equipment. Horrible horrible place. Steer clear for the well being of your career.
