    Drivers are expendable, constant hiring and firing.

    I worked at Swift Transportation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Trucks are good.

    Cons

    Extended time away from home. Living in truck. DM's with little concern for driver. Do not expect to get unemployment compensation under any circumstance. Company does not communicate with driver. They make decisions that effect your pay without telling employee and seem to change the rules to benefit themselves as they go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least treat your drivers as well as you would horses if they were pulling carts. They are the reason you are in business.

    I worked at Swift Transportation full-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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