    I have been working at Swift Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked for Swift Full Time for a little less than a year now, I have to say they are a really good company. They always take care of the worse situations no matter what, they're always there for their drivers!

    Cons

    Need a better structure of where to place trucks for freight. Sometimes you'll be sitting because there's 80 trucks in your area and only 40 loads..

    Advice to Management

    Work on structuring the location of the trucks so drivers won't be sitting doing nothing waiting on freight in certain areas.
