Good place to start, but don't stick around unless you have a dedicated route

I worked at Swift Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I was on Target Dedicated and made good money. I was home 4-5 nights per week, if I chose.

Cons

Washed up drivers take pay cuts to become driver managers (dispatchers) and they are as bad, or worse at that as they were driving. They like the feel of power and seek every opportunity to make other driver, who are doing well, do worse. I trained for 3 years and they have absolutely no quality control on who they hire from schools. Their own schools run JTPA students through who never intend to get a job. These paid students are extremely disruptive and make it harder for the real students to drive. When I told them a student was a danger to the driving public, they just sent him to another trainer with less scruples.

Advice to Management

Read my cons and fix them. That would be a good start.

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

    Pros

    Safety was a priority when I worked there. They had a decent training program. The trainer I had was a professional.

    Cons

    When you start the pay is always an issue. Some terminals were good and others (Atlanta)not so good. I think the top speed on tractors was 61 when I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at complaints in the terminals that are not the drivers home terminal.
