I went to orientation and they sent me a check stub and I have no clue how to get my orientation pay. I went with another company because the grass was greener in another company.
I have done the same in quitting my Job and I know work for SWIFT. I cannot get ahold of any driver leader and on my check I see some deliveries that are not paid and this check I made $110 considering all the driving I am doing something is wrong and I get no help. My home office is Greer south Carolina.
Things have improved so this statement should be void as I am seeing change and am currently pleased with everything.
Swift saw my review and threatened to make my check $55.00 unless I retracted it.
I am new to Swift Transportation, and I don't feel need. The pre-plan team won't give me any loads. I have been stuck in Oregon And Washington state now for 3 weeks. I joined this company because it was better then some of the others, but now I am thinking that I could be wrong. Every time I send A message through Qualcomm no one responds to my message. I have never in my life of work ever felt so unwanted by a company. The only one that really seems to care about me getting any loads is my Driver Manager. We are suppose to be a team. But I don't feel like I am part of this team. I feel like a nobody. They need to come up with a better way to communicate with the Drivers because the Qualcomm don't seem to be working. Then when you ask them to call you from the Qualcomm they don't they just send you a message. It is hard to read a message when you are driving. To me that is a big distraction and it is also very dangerous. I want to stay with this company but I also want to feel that I am part of this team not left in the rain and the cold.
wow. That sucks! I guess they did me a favor when they lied to me and didn't hire me. GLAD it happened that way for me, saved me from your situation. I'd head for their nearest terminal and turn in the truck.
This company CLAIMS to need drivers. This company CLAIMS to be "felony friendly". But evidently they don't and aren't. All the ads I see say that as long as the felony is 10 or more years old, it doesn't matter. Mine is more than 10 old and they SEEMED to be ok with it. Even went through the process and expense to pull my clearinghouse record (which is clean). Only to be told my CREDIT wasn't good enough. I wasn't asking for a loan. I wasn't asking to finance a truck. I was applying for a job. A job they claim they need people to fill. Well, I guess I have learned it doesn't matter if you know how to drive or are safe at it, aa long as your bills are current, they'll hire you.
VERY UPSET WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!My husband hahe worked for Swift Transportation for 25 years,' he reached his million miles andhis 2 million miles and has NEVER received any acknowledgement or
any of the things you're supposed to receive? He won't say anything but I feel he deserves somthing for 25 years!

There seems to be a problem with swift trucking not making sure that the driver's get their home time. It seems that the dispatchers don't care if the driver's get back to in this case is Ocala Florida to start their time off. When a driver does a run out of state and can't get a run back to ocala there is a problem. When a driver sits for days on end in another state this isn't right. Does this happen in other areas too?
I HAVE NO PROBLEM HOMETIME
I WAS OUT FOR 5 WEEKS AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THEM BUT THEY GET YOU HOME
IF YOU JUST PUT IN FOR HOMETIME AND EXSPECT THEM TO SET IT ALL UP---YOUR SCREWED
KEEP THAT QUALCOMM ROCKING WITH FREEFORM MESSAGES DAYS BEFORE YOU GOTTA BE HOME
THEY WILL GET YA HOME
OCALA IS MY HOME LOCATION ALSO
Swift will hire you, give you a bag of crap, charge you 200$ for it, and then as soon as you sign up for health insurance your safety points skyrocket and they terminate you. Don't be surprised if they fill out paperwork for you that shorts your pay so they can screw you on your final check! ALL THE RUMORS ARE TRUE! SWIFT SUCKS!
I feel Swift is racist and unfair and unjust and Slanders people and ruins their career
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.
Keep the Faith Keith , Turn it over to A Higher power
I went to swift orientation in Decatur Georgia and to do so I had to quite my other job first. I was there two weeks ago and took my drug screens. My hair follicle came back the same week but it has now been two weeks and still no sign of my urine screen. I've done had to move out of my house and now I'm behind on my car and they act like they don't even care. The just keep telling me to be patient. How long does it take. I think I at least deserve an explanation
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?
