My trucker friends always post up pics and videos showing Swift drivers doing incredibly stupid things. Are they really as bad as all that?

Swifty Swift gets a bad name. I mean I think they may be the largest trucking company out there so yeah they may have more opportunities to do bone headed things but as a percent I’ve heard they are good and pretty good to work for

someone told you wrong, they are and have always been a training co. and the drivers they use to train on the road sometimes have less than a yr. in.

swift, werner, schneider and a couple of others run a lot of newbies since the pay is lower and once hired the driver is stuck till school is paid off.

I made the huge mistake of leasing on to swift way back when, ended up in a class action lawsuit over how they treated lease drivers. I was unaware of their shady practices and cheating drivers out of pay.

A Swift driver took out just over 400 yards of my fence when he left the road. Calling them was a daily routine to get paid on that deal, took four months. Swift, Schneider and one more are the same entity, the claims menu on the phone direct you to the right person. When watching the Hwy Patrol write the citation, it was only a permit driver that had the wreck, he was by himself. They let me know Swift had convinced the govt. that their training program and on-board telematics was so good, that they allowed them to run permit drivers solo. It was muddy when it happened, and those ruts in my field still have not plowed out totally smooth three years later.

Another time one of them backed into one of our company trucks at a truck stop in South Tx. We had video of it, the driver of the Swift truck opened his door, looked back, and hauled azz. Our trucks front camera caught all of this, and our driver called the police and followed the Swift driver. He denied the accident when stopped, we sent the video to the officer and the driver was cited. It took longer to get this claim resolved, as Swift also did not want to take responsibility, even though they saw the video.

Went to a school for 4 weeks, drove a 10 spd like a mad man. So I have 120 hours of schooling, that's it. Been yanking trailers around since I had my first license at 16, just nothing professional like. Until I get this house squared away for my parents, I don't want to go OTR. Honestly, would love to do some hot shots for a bit, at least regionally.
