    I worked at Swift Transportation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They will hire almost anyone. An easy place to get experience. Always plenty of freight. Very flexible with home time.

    Cons

    The training was not very helpful. There were many essential things to know that were left to the driver to learn by trial and error.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul the training program. Mentors should have a specific list of skills to train the students in and there should be a thorough evaluation of each student's training. The written test appeared to be written to ensure that everyone passed. You will continue to have a high rate of accidents as long as you continue to hire everyone with a CDL-A and a pulse.
