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

    Pros

    Freight base network is solid . The freight normally accommodates owner operators so that they can run their business efficiently and effectively . Also they have numerous dedicated fleets and also a mentorship program to train students . Support is second to none , I personally feel myself as a business owner that I have the best terminal and the best DM that give me the tools to succeed as a owner Operator . As we all know every entrepreneur has the right to decline loads and swift honours this understanding that knowing that we have to run effectively and efficiently. The truck payment is really low per week for a brand new peice of equipment , again swift shares the buying power with their owner ops pretty generously because they want to see you succeed . I run 3000 mile weeks and I have good revenue generated .

    Cons

    As owner operators we don't get compensated for safety milestones , I just wish at least we could get patches or pins for awards .

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the good job and the positive attitudes . We are best in class and that means from the janitor all the way up the ladder to the CEO himself . Thank you .
