    The dedicated fleet for Walmart is a good pay and had steady work

    Swift has a poor safety rating, which means you get pulled into the Ports often.

    Pros

    Isn't afraid to train. Hourly pay can be good and provide overtime opportunities.

    When it comes time to look at moving up the pay is mediocre averaging around $40k with almost no holidays off.

    Company driver, Swift

    Pros

    Swift is one of the big 3 trucking firms, along with JB Hunt and Schneider, all of whom have branched out into intermodal transportation. The upside is that there are plenty of loads. It is also possible to achieve small raises and safety bonuses and pay moderate amounts for group health.

    Cons

    The downside for company drivers is that these three are non-union employers whose pay rates are only average and whose turnover is relatively high as a consequence. Swift hires a lot of younger drivers and so has only an average safety record. Some older drivers leave because they are just not earning the kind of money they used to earn. The bottom line is that it is tough saving up enough to buy your own truck. It could take ten years. They do have a lease program that gives you a buy-out option.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing. Pay is decent but no great for the amount of work you do
