I learnt quite a lot while in the company. However, there was not enough diversity in the company. Most of the workers were from India.
The Contractors were treated as second class citizens.
Pros
Free drinks
Cons
Micro-management of employees

Swift may be a good starting point if you are a student or very inexperienced driver. Get your training and experience and move on to another company that pays you better and values you. Management is indifferent to terrible and to them your just another body to move that truck. Once you have 6months to a year under your belt you can find a much better position some where else

There are some good things about Swift and some bad things about Swift. In short summary

Bad is lack of good direction on knowledge of the business and many within Swift are not helpful or very slow to assist when needed if they even answer you.


Good is lots of room for moving up as long as you are willing to relocate.

Depends a ton on your manager, and your division. OTR pay is horrible, as are the loads. Dedicated Cosco was higher pay, more work, and better home time with local available, but even harder to get than the dedicated account. Corporate micromanages, and relies too heavily upon technology (sensors) that can often be wrong.
Pros
Opportunities exist
Cons
Rely too heavily on technology and corporate

Not many young professionals but company takes care of its employees. Although politics play a big part in getting work done.
