Been 8 years
Diesel Mechanic Technician (Former Employee) –  Martinsburg, WVApril 19, 2018
Been 8 years since I worked for them, but at that time they took away 401k, doubled the cost of health insurance, forced employees to take unpaid weeks off, did not pay time and a half for overtime to mechanics, was not allowed to advance due to age regardless if you were already doing the job. Overall at the time a terrible company to work for.

A Pretty Good Place To Work
Dedicated Accounts Leader (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZApril 13, 2018
Worked there 6 years. It was a pretty good place to work. Great people there. A lot of stress right now though due to the merger. I still think though that Swift has a great future ahead.

Good but not good.
Local Driver (Former Employee) –  Fontana, CAApril 11, 2018
In my opoin I feel swift is the best for student to come in an get there training an move on. Not good for like a retirement company. The reason y I say its not good for a retirement job cuz o/o training get the first loads, then o/o then company drivers, now if u want to be a trainer then it would be great for u .
Pros
Its a good training company.
Cons
There is a lot of miscomunacation. With the uppet team members.

Too much for power for one individual to have
3M Truck Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMApril 11, 2018
I enjoyed working at SWIFT, however the terminal manager fired everybody in the shop with over 5 years experience and hired a lower level of worker. The change was to save money although the company was not in financial distress.

extreme stress
Professional Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZApril 9, 2018
while the pay is barely legal and the benefits are okay the amount of stuff you have to put up with is not okay. whenever you call in to get some information you have to spend anywhere from five to forty-five minutes just sitting there waiting for someone to pick up the phone. but while you are on hold you are listening to this non stop sales pitch, that on the particularly more stressful days just make you angry
Pros
get to see a lot of the country
Cons
non existent home life
