This job is good for a single non committed individual
Class A Driver (Current Employee), Jurupa ValleyNovember 18, 2014
Pros: free shower credit, points to buy food, drinks ect
Cons: sitting for long periods of time. sleeping in a confined space.
This driving position required OTR over the road driving. Driving 13,000 miles and being away from home for 27 days. This does not work for me. I need a local job so I won't be away from home for so many consecutive days.

Hardest part of the job was backing into tight dock areas. Enjoyable part of the job was the ability to see the country.

Perfect job for the time
Driver (Former Employee), Lewiston, IdahoNovember 17, 2014
I really love driving, but the being away from home just did not play well for my family. I learned much from the experience and was able to learn much about the country in my travels. The most difficult part was lack of information regarding delivery access to locations and unanticipated delivery/pickup procedures of some customers.

Worst company I've ever worked for
Customer Service (Former Employee), PhoenixNovember 9, 2014
Pros: you can buy great household stuff from the cargo store for cheap
Cons: aweful management
Unorganized, management is horrible with no structure what-so-ever, therefore there's no structure with the employees. This is a very large establishment, strict rules need to be implimented. If it starts with management it will trinkle down to the enmployees and things would run smoother and there wouldn't be such a high turn over in a lot of departments.

Great Company to start out with.
OTR/Dedicated/Surge Driver (Current Employee), 11 Western RegionNovember 3, 2014
Pros: good starter company/ no forced dispatch
Cons: communication takes forever to reach the right people, handle it yourself
Many other trucking companies offer higher mileage and or some other empty promise that they dont intend to keep. The pay is typically the key to anyone's longevity within the company.

OTR is perfect for the person who has little or no family and not much of a social life. If this is not you and you are a trucker there is no reason you cant work a – more... dedicated run or a local job.

The worst aspect about this job is the amount of people you have to inform in order to change the gameplans of any job you do. NO one wants to take responsibility for any decision making. As a truck driver always playing beat the clock I personally have no patience for waiting on somebody else to do their job. If you are the type of person that does not take charge of the situations at hand you will hate this company. There is just too many people who have an influx amount of authority trying to control when and where the loads need to go and have a care free attitude about your schedule as a driver. – less

Stay away!!
Driver (Former Employee), Cleburne,txNovember 3, 2014
Pros: the dispatchers are nice and work with you.
Cons: low pay, dirty trucks, unstable work schedule
Walmart dedicated in cleburne.Terrible company to work for. Well below pay scale for a good professional driver. They expect you to do several tasks for free. No set work schedule..they expect drivers to be ready to go at all times of the day and night.

Swift Trucking
Professional Driver (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 28, 2014
Pros: lots of terminals
Cons: left hand doesnt know what the right hand is doing. lack of communication
Went to company as an O/O and was told many things.

The DM is great and the planner we dealt with was great as well. But the weekend and lack of freight and the money that was promised, is not what I had hoped for.

I cant just work to pay the truck and move freight, I have a family and bills to pay.

Swift transportation is ok
Mechanic (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 22, 2014
Pros: good place to get experence
Cons: treated as lower class
Swift is not bad they don't care about anything but keeping trucks on the road , which is ok that's what they do, but when it comes Christmas , thanksgiving, all management will not be there but everyone else is expected to , you are definitely treated as lower class . however it is a great place to build experience because they will just let you work – more... on trucks until there done , you repair everything that is damaged . – less
