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

Pros

Decent miles for company drivers, most loads are drop and hook.

Cons

Low pay scale, If you sign a lease with swift you no longer get decent loads, you make just enough to pay truck payment and a few bucks in your pocket. Swift often neglects to pay detention pay, if you follow up with calls and emails you might get it, you might not. All loads are still paid zip code to zip code, not actual miles (always at least 10% shorter than actual).

Advice to Management

Pay your drivers honestly and maybe so many won't be quitting all the time.

    Pros

    A few coworkers , though they are based in other stated. Most all the drivers a great.

    Cons

    Way too many hours for very little pay. Constant micro managing. Back stabbing , new policies almost daily.

    Advice to Management

    Jerry should listen to the older employees that have spent many years here. Swift would have got 5 stars a couple years ago.
