Intro Company for Drivers

Walmart Dedicated Driver (Current Employee) Opelika, AL

ProsThere are plenty of resources to work with such as terminals, equipment and yes, people. A large company that is a great place to get started as a driver.

ConsThere is no room for improvement. It was easy to come in to but regardless of how well you do there a driver is not rewarded. Platinum driver ranking, -10 safety rating, and 100% on time with a spotless record means nothing in the end. I went dedicated and got paid $200-300 less per week than those in the Distribution Center 100 miles away simply because Swift told me it would be the same. Overall, Swift lies to entice new drivers.

Advice to Senior ManagementTell the truth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: I did love parts of my time driving for Swift. I had a good tractor, and didn't give me much trouble after they finally got… Cons: Like others have said, it's a "good old boy" network.
