Managment not concerned with drivers needs
OTR Truck Driver (Current Employee), Troutdale, ORAugust 28, 2014
Pros: health insurance
Cons: not enough home time
Typically in a days work I receive my assignment between 6-8 AM each day, never know ahead of that time what my destination will be. Sometimes have to wait for longer period 12-24 hrs for a load. Some days short runs 34 miles, 200 miles which end up taking up all my driving hrs because of delivery times and traffic.
Management seems unconcerned with – more... drivers needs for time for Dr. appointments and home time.
Co-workers seem to have the same problems.
Hardest part of the job taking care of health and finding healthy food on the road.
Most enjoyable part of the job, I love to drive, enjoy doing my job well at all times. – less

Great pay but few opportunities to enjoy it
Company OTR Driver (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 19, 2014
Pros: great pay, easy work, excellent view
Cons: very little home time, poor assistance
once you've received your next load you begin planning your trip and
depending on your hours left as well as time frame to your final destination, you either accept or reject the load then you proceed to the receiving location after connecting the trailer and inspecting that it's secure you acquire your paperwork and start driving to your destination. – more... Once there you drop the trailer where the guards tell you and go to the receiving desk to have your paperwork filled out afterwards you go to a scanner either at the terminals or a truck stop and scan your documents for pay confirmation. Typically you receive anywhere from 4-7 loads a week at around 250-550 miles per load for solo drivers and 3-5 loads at 1200-2700 miles for team drivers. – less

Good for beginners, but pay attention
CDL Class A Driver (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 18, 2014
Pros: thorough training
Cons: low pay, slow trucks
Their training program is very thorough. The dispatches in the dry box department can be chaotic and poorly planned. Make sure to use common sense and do hesitate to ask questions. The pay is low, and the trucks are slow. Office staff (dispatchers) seems to be disengaged from the drivers not knowing what a map looks like so dispatches do not make sense – more... at times. But it is experience and they do get you behind the wheel. – less

its a job
Driver (Current Employee), CAAugust 11, 2014
Cons: away from family a lot
Truck driving will keep you in a job as long as you keep your record clean. As for family and friends dont expect to see them often if you're over the road, maybe once a month. If you can get lucky to get a dedicated position then you can get home weekly and some even most nights. It took several months for me to get a dedicated route and im home a – more... couple days a week but its still not enough if you have kids. As for pay Swift is one of the lowest, dedicated you can make a lot more but over the road expect to begin at 25cpm and at times sit for days without a load. – less

Dedicated Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 10, 2014
I would not recommend this kindergarten company.
no money. Nobody knows what the other person is doing.
Broken promises. Flat out lies. You'll starve at Swift unless you lease a truck and take on beginner students. which means you could die from somebody who don't know how to drive. And you cant go home. If you want to average $1000 a week. before taxes.

Enjoyable Co-workers
Driver Leader (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NMAugust 10, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: lack of leadership and no value put on education.
This is a fast paced work environment, which will keep you on your toes at all times. Management lacks education, leadership skills, and are promoted based on relationship, not experience. Co-workers are hard working and will make sure you succeed, but have to deal with a micro-manager who only looks out for himself, and does not reward or recognize – more... his employees. Management is the most challenging part of this job. – less
