Truck Driver (Former Employee), PHOENIX,AZ – July 1, 2013
Pros: they paid hotel
Cons: they let you go for no reason.
BAD REVIEW-GOT LAID OFF WHEN I HAD TO COME HOME FROM CALIFORNIA TO GO SEE MY X IN THE HOSPITAL AND WOULDNT GET HIRED BACK BECAUSE I LEFT DURING TRAINING AND MY 12 YEAR OLD WAS HOME ALONE .MY DRIVER MANAGER WOULD NOT REPLY TO MY PHONE CALLS. NOT A SITUATION YOU WANNA GET CAUGHT IN WITHOUT COMPANY UNDERSTANDING YOU'R BASIC NEEDS.

Pros: pride in the work we performed for the company
Cons: sorry they discontinued the business
The company was operated very smoothly during my tenure I haul freight for2 years and later became a trainer for the company was very successful. Upon the company's switch to include auto-rail was my calling the work was demanding and the" Auto Haulers" were a group of drivers all to them selves and there was pride in what we did delivering some very – more... expensive cars to Dealers throughout the states. – less
driver (Former Employee), spokane wa – July 14, 2014
Pros: my 2nd mentor
I joined this place with intension to get a refresher to get better knowledge of the new. I got on my truck with a mentor and learned all I needed in 1st couple days. Not sure why they kept me from home but I'm sure they get money from the government if the keep me for the whole 6 weeks of tortureThey he'd a mentor pick me up in another town and wanted – more... me to take my test in another part of the country to give me a load back home. Well my own vehicle will be sitting in a town I don't live in. Also the $200-$300 a week is so worth it. I completed the hrs they pretty much forced me to do and talked my mentor into driving me to the airport in his home town. Now no money for them from the gov. Lesson learned. Unless you are homeless and don't like having money, the you really should work for swift. – less
Owner/Operator (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – July 6, 2014
Pros: decent equipment(trucks)
Cons: untrained instructors
Swift is a great company to start your introduction to transportation. I attended the school and entered into the workforce eager-ed to be trained to be a safe driver. Training was intense and challenging at time but in debt and necessary. For someone wanting to be introduced into the transportation industry and needing to go through training, Swift – more... would be a company I would recommend. I have traveled around the world to many countries on business and leisure and I have now had the opportunity to travel to 45 states and Canada by working for Swift. That's one thing less left on my bucket list. thanks Swift! – less
