    I worked at Swift Transportation (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    New equipment. Pay. Benefits. Employee stock purchase. Opportunities.

    Cons

    Adaptive cruise control. I think is ok in a car but unsafe in an 80,000 lb vehicle. The unit can apply brakes and cause an accident.

    No advice. You all do a good job.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Newer equipment. Weekly pay.

    Cons

    Claims of needing you aren't proven in amount of drive time scheduled. Hours divided by paycheck equals minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    You are a logistics based company yet it appears the driver managers are flying by the seat of their pants all the time.

    I worked at Swift Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Consistent work most of the time.

    Cons

    Favoritism! They have their list of favorites who they dish out all the good loads too. Whatever left over that the favorites rejected them loads goes to the unfortunate. No bonus or increase home time is 36 hrs which isn't enough. Chicago is the majority of drop offs. Downtown areas. Traffic can be challenging during rush hours. Night driving through Indiana 65 ,No consistency in paycheck. The pay isn't worth the route.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay.
