    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.
