I worked at Swift Transportation full-time
Some of the good aspects of working for Swift is the provides fair health insurance, 401 K, yearly bonuses, company shares given only to all management and a company share discounts. Working on site means we did not have to be part of the political side that goes on at the ELP terminal.
Some of the negative aspects are that they under pay the drivers on miles( about a average of 140 miles per week short). All drivers complain about the miles and upper management does nothing to resolve it. El Paso management at the terminal knowingly exhibits favoritism and instead of the other employees complaining the HR they look the other way in fear that they may get a write or get fired this has created a hostile environment Also many of the management (driver managers) would quit because of the favoritism and drivers would quit either because of the way they were treated and for not getting paid actual miles driven causing them not show up to work or apply for another trucking job that paid a better rates per miles.
Advice to Management
Management needs to work at the way they treat their employees,.also by giving management the proper training for regular management or a move to upper management. Their usual way of training is to let the employee start them without any prior knowledge of the systems and company policies, it's either sink or swim. For the drivers they need to resolve the issue of paying them the correct mileage driven. It's sad that some of the upper management use to be drivers before they went to management and instead of trying to work on a resolution for this issue they just give excuses like there is nothing they can do about it either take it or leave it.
