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.

Driver Orientation Lead Coordinator (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – March 7, 2014
prepare orientation room, review number of drivers in each class, introduce myself, start with paperwork then videos. start the drug testing on hte group. I would have to squeeze in the random drug testing in for that day. also conduct orientation for new hire of office employee's when nessesary. check with my group of processors on new hire paperwork. – more... sometimes it got stressful but it got completed. it was a job that was a full days work, but that is what made it enjoyable. – less
Good to work for if you like to stress about your job
Driver/Maintenance (Former Employee), Moberly, MO – March 3, 2014
Pros: home every day.
Cons: short lunch of only 30 minutes, not knowing if you have a job the next day, knowing you can be terminated at any time for no reason
I started with the company as a driver. On a regular day, I would do my pre-trip inspection of my truck. If I don't already have a load, I would check my Qualcomm for a load. I would then plan my route and go and pick up my load. I would drive and log within DOT regulations. At the end of my day, I would conduct my post trip inspection and be done with – more... that portion for the day. After my break, I would continue my route if it was not finished prior to my break. After driving for about a year, I started working in the shop at the Moberly Missouri terminal. I started working during the day and later I was moved to night shift to accommodate me be able to attend church on Sundays. After being there for a while I noticed that myself and a couple of other personnel in the shop were getting in trouble for very little things and two of them were terminated for little mistakes. There were a few other guys that were employed there who I later found out were the manager's cousin and friend. They could do no wrong since the manager was related to one and friends with the other. I had been suspended a few times for small infractions I was going to seek employment elsewhere, but no one was hiring. A few of my co-workers and I worked great as a team. I did learn a lot from them and they learned a lot from me. The hardest part of this job was the hours. I was working from 4:00pm until 3:00am. I slept mostly during the day and didn't get much time with my family. What I did enjoy was I worked four days a week and was off for three. On one or two of those days off I was able to help out and deliver some freight for the company. – less
driver (Former Employee), Troutdale , Or. – February 18, 2014
Cons: home time and pay, and useing your money to pay scales and toll's
not enough training on the quail com system. Not paid on hold over time and when road closed to light load to much loss time. some day's only making 30 dollars, I cannot live on this income the cost of living on the road cost to much . I advise not to work at Swift starting cpm .25 and in 4 months I was up to .26 and I had all loads on time and driving – more... in all road conditions. Then home time was not planned and you sent in your home time wanted and they would want to send the wrong direction. – less
