"Look I've tried figuring out where to start and what all to say. But truth is I have SO much stuff, there's SO much bad stuff from my experience I can tell you it could fit a Stephen King novel. I'm going to go ahead and say though, your experience may differ than mine, and if you are already a driver with enough experience to not have to do their trainee program then go for it... I went to Swift Academy, got CDL, then they quickly ushered me into their orientation and trainee program. I am just going to say this once... DO not go into their training program. YOU WILL be very unhappy. They DO not have enough mentors to go around. You will be sitting for DAYS for your mentor. Even if you get a mentor, he may not do everything by the book enough, get in trouble, then you will LOSE that mentor, have to sit for MORE days for another mentor! You are not getting hours all this time. They are supposed to pay you 50$ a day when sitting in hotel, then you see pay check it isn't there. Now you have to call payroll to get your money they promised you. And I talked to enough people... they do it to EVERYBODY. Experienced drivers too. Shaft them on their miles. Cheapskates that pay as little as possible to even their best people. They do their best to not pay you. My one mentor would show me the actual mileage to a destination and what they would have for the dispatch would be less, they would only assign the mileage "BETWEEN ZIP CODES" not between ACTUAL DESTINATIONS, lol. So they actually from all their drivers are skimming hundreds, maybe thousands, millions of dollars every year... crooked. BOTH of my mentors I was able to get weren't even company drivers, owner operators who play by their own rules and they're supposed to train me to be a company driver who is gonna be supervised constantly by cameras and sensors all over these company trucks... trucks governed at 62 mph so you're going slow everywhere, can't pass anyone... right."

"I have been at Swift for 4 years, started out in break down, very strong in telling what's wrong with the trucks. Then moved into logistics booking loads and selling loads to carriers, and the last spot they moved me to is intermodal to take car of customers."
