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

Former Employee - Driver Trainer in Decatur, GA
Former Employee - Driver Trainer in Decatur, GA

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Driver managers kept me moving. Plenty of work.

    Cons

    Maintenance department personnel could be friendlier, esp. in Gary In.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need wi-fi at your terminals for driver use. Maintenance needs more interaction w/drivers.
