I was training to be a driver and was not told all information and when I had to return home because of an emergency I was tossed away like a piece of trash and had to walk back to the hotel and find my own way home. I had to figure out what hotel I was in because I was not sent a hotel confirmation. I was told that they would work with me if something comes up or changes but I was not worked with at all. It was the worst experience I have ever been through and have given up on getting my class a.
Lousy company to work for, wife has cancer and I cant get home. Boss hangs up if wife calls, DONT WORK HERE
To this day I can't grasp how a mutilmillion dollar company like Swift Transportation does not have any trained office personnel or drivers in CPR how a such a huge "progressive" company be so ignorant. On JANUARY 19 when my father collapsed on your company floor.and none of your office personal was CPR trained or even had a defibrillator on company ground to aide and to top it off u send him to the hospital and return back to work u send him off to the HOSPITAL As A JHON DOE BECAUSE OF COURSE U HAD MORE-IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO THEN STAY BY THE SIDE OF YOUR DIVER THE DIVER THAT STAYED BY YOUR SIDE FOR 17 years , . Everyday I pass your trucks and think wow my father worked for you all for 17 years and was a great driver and a proud worker he talked so greatly of SWIFT TRANSPORTATION he even said your little motto all the time "we are the divers of American life" yeah you are, until that life ends and u sent a slap on the face to help with the funeral expenses. From the workers donation the workers sent that not even SWIFT. After he collapsed on YOUR company floor. Everyday of my life I pass your trucks and think "what's is the next driver worth to "SWIFT" nothing because there numbers, disposable numbers, they won't even stay by your side they are just workers, so to all who are thinking of working here or applying ask ask ask if they at-least have CPR trained personal at your home terminal ask if they have a defibrillator ask them what 17 years of hard work is with work to them. Ask them if u collapsed on their floor would they send u alone in a stretcher or would die ride by your side?
I was a driver student recently at Swift in Memphis TN , I am very disappointed with the lack of training that goes on I failed the road test 3 times brought it to the director attention that I needed to brush up on my shifting before the test. . took the first road test failed it didn't get back into a truck until the 2nd road test.
