On-Site Leader (Current Employee) – USA – February 16, 2019
Swift has afforded me great opportunity. I started out as a driver and advanced through the ranks and am now in leadership. The pay is low in comparison to other companies. That is my only complaint. I've been with Swift for almost 10 years, and have no desire to leave.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 15, 2019
Swift was good for a short period of time, the managment really dont care about their drivers , my mother had passed away and during my phone call explaining I needed to be home I was hung up on. The reason was "everyones mom dies everyday". I dont recommend this company to anyone.
Parts coordinator/Purchasing (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 12, 2019
I would contact vendors on cost savings put together a power point presentation on why, when and how. Finding quality material and asking vendor to negotiate a cost saving program. Presenting the presentation and program to the floor managers upon approval or needing more information was how the day would go. I learned to be more professional with speaking levels of management terms. work culture was very professional and working as a team was enjoyable.
Drive too many hours and only home 4 days a month with $200-$400 a week on average. Too hard to get loads coming home for home time. Some driver leaders are not helpful getting loads and make you wait until the next day for another dricer leader to touch base with the planner for loads.

Good company to start out with. Courteous and dedicated to help people out with getting one's CDL during training. My only issue is being away from family for long periods of time while only making .40 a mile.
Dedicated Driver (Former Employee) – Robert, LA – January 31, 2019
If your new to the game I would recommend swift do your 1 year or about 2 years and always keep safety frist and you'll do great....to get good loads you will have to keep in contact with your DM manager..... the otr miles suck...and the dedicated account routes are way better then the otr miles...
Benefits, new equipment, lots of terminals
Low miles for otr, very unhealthy sleeping patterns, communication sucks
