    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great healthcare. Good pay. Friendly co workers.

    Cons

    Need to have better fuel set up. Need Opti idel on all trucks.

    Advice to Management

    Consider to save fuel by thinking green Marina solar panels can skin the truck. And save fuel. So can Apu systems for OTR trucks only. Out more than 3 -4 weeks.

    I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time

    Pros

    Great Culture on the ground floor for TAs, Trainers are very knowledgeable and open, decent starting pay.

    Cons

    Training felt very rushed and all over the place and didn't feel like there was any sort of structure to it. Very long shifts, and fellow coworkers don't seem too open to you asking questions

      Doesn't Recommend

      I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time

      Pros

      Great pay if your moving

      Cons

      Don’t expect after hour service or help from dispatch and when they are open don’t always have the tools to help (not their fault)

      Advice to Management

      A 24 hour operation should have all departments open for 24 hours and everything should be available to the people in those departments to help

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      No experience required, training program offered. New fleet of trucks now have power inverters and some with refrigerators. Lots of terminals and driver services. Lots of fleet options and non-driving employment opportunities if you’re looking for a change. Opportunities for bonus pay. Lots of good people within the company that are in positions to help you, whether it’s driver managers, mechanics,...

      Cons

      Occasionally, hometime requests aren’t met in time. Disappointed to learn about lawsuits against the company. Poor reputation.

      Advice to Management

      It would be great to see some of the terminals improve the conditions of their showers, specifically the Denver terminal.
