Great company that treat their drivers bad
CDL Class A Driver (Current Employee), South FloridaFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: pay, benefits, take him a truck
Cons: limited days home, forced dispatched, petty games
Pros: They help you get a cdl. As a solo new driver .33 cent per mile.

Cons:The academy sUcks. No one on one time you have to be able to use youtube and google properly and inplement it. Its no free food or bonuses no matter what the recruitment tell you. They treat the drivers horrible. Im a new driver and they have spiteful times they would have me wait 5 days out on the road in the winter for a 300 mile empty then a T-call. Smh. I don't understand how such a big company with so many "loads" can have driver siting like ducks. Same with an owner op. Had him siting for 3 weeks. They kept playing the dispatch game where they "dispatched" him to no loads so he couldn't get any. Smh it's crazy the games the DM's play.

Very routine & cultured diverse environment.
Fleet Manager (Former Employee), Chicago Ridge, ILFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: good benefits, vacation
Cons: at time upper management is confusing. when you expect them to have your back, knowing all the pressure your on, they turn their heads and leave you to the fire.
Typical workday for managers starts anywhere from 5 am to 7am. As on onsite manager I worked from 5-3. These hours however were dependent on if you accomplished certain tasks. Otherwise you were in earlier the next day. Management was their. I had a boss who always was their for me until the very end. Co-workers were great, It was more of a team environment. Hardest part of the job would be attempting to accomplish all the tasks to satisfy your drivers an boss's. The most enjoyable part of the job was you made alot of long lasting relationships with the drivers.

A good company to start or finish your career with, if you're somewhere in the middle, look elsewhere
Driver/Driver Mentor (Former Employee), Richmond, VAFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: see the country or at least your region
Cons: long days that you aren't fully compensated for. you give the company a lot of your time for free
Decent miles, decent equipment. More good people in some terminals, more not so good people in others. A good company to start, re-start or finish your career with, might want to find somewhere better for the in-between.

As trucking company's go, not too bad. Good managers and fair route assignments.
Commercial Truck Driver/Owner-Operator (Former Employee), Inver Grove Heights, MNJanuary 31, 2015
Pros: nice people, many terminals, a lot of big accounts
Cons: hometime, expensive leases, could pay more for o/o
As an O/O, you can pick your routes, time off, and what you want to do. Pay could have been better had I taken anything offered. Enjoyed working there, but home time was limited in order to pay for lease on truck. Had to be rolling frequently.

below average company
Driver Manager (Former Employee), Chicago Ridge, ILJanuary 31, 2015
What I loved the most about Swift was my driver's, Swift as a whole, is very unfair company, even though I made very nice salary while working for them.
