    I worked at Swift Transportation

    Pros

    Ample freight. You will not sit.
    Considering your minimal downtime, the pay is competitive
    Mostly drop and hook.
    Swift is a "puppy mill". New drivers are very welcome.
    They are good about getting you home.
    The Lewiston terminal is one of the best to work from.
    The driving school is top notch.
    Good, late model tractors and trailers.

    Cons

    Bad company reputation. It's not completely deserved, but it wears on you.
    Sloooooow trucks.
    Trying to get extra pay that you should be due can be a challenge.
    Being a trainer is heavily pushed, but it's not for the faint of heart.
    You likely won't stay with Swift long term as a new driver (but you will likely come back).
    Cross your "t"s and dot your "i"s. If trouble can be pinned on you, someone may try. It's a big company. CYA is the order of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your drivers are your most important resource. Without them, NOTHING happens. This is more than just a slogan or a memo point. Make it the everyday mantra, and LIVE IT. I saw the driver appreciation displayed by management slip in my time (I was there off and on from 1998 to 2009). Recapture the focus on the driver that built the company from #4 to #1during my tenure.
