Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Arizona – June 5, 2018
Company follows all of safety and compliance of all DOT regulations and laws. Company Equipment is leading edge in the industry. Company has a wide variety of customers and freight. Swift also has a good annual training for senior drivers.
Aggravatingly nerve wrecking because of mismanagement

Our experience with Swift in 6 months has been sadly horrendous..first off planners do not calculate your 10 hours in sleeper mode when they shove priority loads that do not carry any extra pay..Be prepared to get an $800 paycheck one week and a $400 the next because the paperwork you're sending through ingage is not handled properly and you're paying for lumper fees out of your check not as an owner but a Company driver.. If you're smart stay away from the Decatur Georgia terminal because no one there cares about drivers.. Home time is given but you want to barely go home or you won't even be able to eat or pay bills ..
Home time is given
Your pay is extremely low..you feel like a Mcdonalds worker

Swift is a great place to get started in the trucking industry. They provide adequate training and all the tractors are well maintained. 24/7 Roadside and office personal and they don't bother you they let you work I go weeks with out talking to anyone for the office just give me my load and let me work!!
Get you CDL !!! great entry level job or career is decided to stay
Trucking is not for the weak very over regulated job Big Brother is Watching.......
BODY SHOP ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Greer, SC – May 22, 2018
It has been many years, but I did enjoy working there and learning all I did about Semi Trucks/Trailers and the transportation business. However, I was a woman in a man's world so there were issues now and then because of that. The hardest part of my job was having to train my managers, but not being able to get that position. I am hoping that after all these years it may have changed out there as I saw even more women drivers being hired by the time I left.
