I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Driver managers kept me moving. Plenty of work.

Cons

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

Advice to Management

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

    Largest carrier out there, dryvan, flatbed, dedicated, regional, intermodal or OTR, THEY have it!

    With ANY large company, you're going to have "bumps in the road" period!

    Better insight into what a driver wants long-term with your company.

    I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
