    Great company based on location

    Pros

    Respectable pay for your drive time (although much better if you are on team). Good benefits which are pretty standard for most big companies. A fair amount of opportunity for home time.

    Cons

    Running dedicated is much more reliable and a safer option for trucking in my experience and with what I have seen. Unfortunately based on your home location and if you are tied to it, you may be very limited on the types of dedicated routes you can take. So in order to make more money do expect to be gone for more extended periods of time (not so much a con and more so just fair words of caution). Not everyone will experience this though I do want to point out as well. Circumstances are always different based on the individual.

    Good but needs some improvements

    Pros

    Miles are there if you want it. Pay is good as you all know more miles means more money. Swift is not as bad as they portrait it to be.

    Cons

    Equipment sucks the company knows and they don’t care. They have a mindset of if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and when it does broke well just pray you are not the one with it. Do your pre trip. The dash cam system is so stupid it’s at the point where I just don’t care anymore. I know am a safe driver and I don’t care what a company thinks one thing they will not do is force me to drive their way.
