Driver (Former Employee) – Sumner, WA – September 12, 2018
8 good years, Everybody treated me with great respect. I enjoy working with staff and the Truckers, I learn to treat everyone with same respect personally and professionally, multi task day. good place to work.
Very fast paced, long hours, highly stressful but good pay. Busy constantly- no time for lunch breaks- you just eat while you work. Twelve plus work days/nights with really no breaks. Very, very stressful- you have a lot of responsibility.
Field Recruiter (Former Employee) – Troutdale, OR – September 10, 2018
Working for Swift, even though it isn't known as one of the best companies in the industry, it's certainly one of the biggest companies in the industry and it has some really good people. If it wasn't for the policy violation that caused my termination I would probably still be there.
travel, the people, the environment, the reward helping guys get their CDL's
High turn over, stress of hitting your numbers, pay structure, lack of following their own policy
Diesel Mechanic (Former Employee) – Sumner, WA – September 10, 2018
Hardest part of the job was: preventive maintenance work, the most enjoyable part of the job was mounting and dismounting tires. As far as workplace culture, from what I could see, employees seemed happy at work.
Driver Leader (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 6, 2018
Swift is a good company to work for. For my position as driver leader I felt I should get paid more. Swift started me out as an ECT(extended Coverage Team) in Intermodal and started me out at a fair wage. Have been with Swift 11 years and it's really not a bad company to work for.
Low productive workplace, lack of communication from Dl's
Commercial Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 5, 2018
Inconsistent on many levels within the company, as a driver with this company I felt very unappreciated. Management is very unprofessional, and there is a major lack in communication with drivers and dl's.
it was an good place to work if you were starting out as a new driver.

Dedicated Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Los Lunas, NM – September 4, 2018
A bit stressful due to not knowing if and when the next phone call was going to happen with the next load assignment along with getting assigned to a truck, getting it loaded with personal supplies and pretriped, getting the right paperwork, right trailer, load legal and to all of the delivery stops by a predetermined time
being stuck in limbo between load assinments not knowing when the next one is happening
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 4, 2018
It was awesome experience for the past years in my working places, especially in swift Transportation LLc. With swift I learnt about self esteem and confidence. Safty was one of their major focused criteria.
