Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Greer, SC

Pros

Steady work, always work to do, albeit very repetitive. Depending on which terminal you work out of or who you may know there could be some opportunites to advance or to change job functions but not so at most terminals. Certain aspects of the job have gotten better slowly.

Cons

Long hours, Some Holiday work but getting better. Some days are so stressed filled that when you finally leave for the day you can't think straight.... many aspects of the job are very frustrating. Job burnout very possible. It seems that the better you are the more work is given to you to compensate for those who are not up to par. Although management and Human Resources is working on it there is still favortism for certain employees when it comes to scheduling time off or work assignments.

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    There 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.
