    Company Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Swift Transportation in October 2013.

    Interview

    There is no interview process. Qualified drivers get hired based on experience NOT based on their ability to pass through an interview. If you are a safe driver without multiple accidents than you can expect to be hired.

    Company Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Swift Transportation (Memphis, TN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Most standard application process. Require 5 years work history, school, etc. If you already have a cdl, they'll put you with an orientation class. If you don't, they'll send you to one of their schools to get a cdl. Orientation will show you very basic information about the company, logs, etc. If your application has errors, you'll need to give more information. Your orientation coordinator will set that up for you. After the initial review process, you'll do a urine collection for drug/alcohol testing. Once you pass that, and all your paperwork is in order, you'll receive a driver code and a mentor assignment. Your mentor won't teach you HOW to drive, but how to operate successfully.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Swift Transportation (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process is detailed and straightforward. Ask plenty of clear questions to get direct answers. Background check, orientation and medical testing are well organized. Orientation takes 3 days and you will be assigned a roommate at a hotel for those 3 nights.

    Interview Questions

    • The asked all typical questions - nothing out of line. The found an old license in my name from 20 years ago from a different state. I thought it was useless since I hadn't held that drivers license since 1998, and the record was clean.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation for pay. Vacation was non-negotiable. Recruiter was polite, professional and direct.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Swift Transportation (Reno, NV) in October 2011.

    Interview

    It was straight forward. The recruiter is willing to work with you and find a way to help the driver to start driving. I was fortunate to not get a liar as I have heard some horror stories. After the initial process, they start checking your employment background as well as your credit and criminal history.
