Swift Transportation - Alabama - Hiring illegal immigrants

I choose not to leave my name and date, but I will say the accident happened in 2007. I was operating a vehicle when I was plowed into the back of by a driver operating a Swift transportation vehicle. To make a long story short the company(Swift transporation) hired an illegal immigrant who did not have the right licensce to operate that vehicle. Can you believe that? You would think that they rushed and payed the claim, but they didn't. I am still going through litigations even though they were found at fault. Tell everybody you KNOW!!!...

Swift Transportation - Bad drivers

I am a current Swift Driver and I have been reading some of the complaints on this site. I am also retired from another career in law enforcement and I really do not have to worry much about the job security (lucky me). I drive to see the country but I also believe in a good work ethic so I do my best even when I am frustrated. This job can get the best of you if you let it. Like any other labor service, not much is required in terms of education to do the job, so if you are expecting that kind of professional treatment, you are in the wrong business. The same statement goes for most of the "management"...

Swift Transportation - Cheated me on disability income

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
They chose the cheapest policy for them and cheat the drivers, who don't earn the same amount every week, out of the correct amount for their disability insurance. They don't report the amounts to the insurance company according to the policy. I'm sure I am not the only driver that has been treated unfairly. I would just like my former employer to report the correct amounts so I can be paid the correct amount. I paid for these benefits, expecting to be able to use them correctly, when and if I needed them. I am being paid 20% of my income instead of 60% and am unable to pay all my...

Swift Transportation - Poor treatment Mentorship Program

Complaint Rating:  78 % with 9 votes
I recently was in Swifts Mentorship Program. I was the worst experience of my life. I was yelled at several time by my Mentor because I didn't know what I was supposed to do. I was in fear of my life because he wasn't getting enough sleep. I was expected to do team driving before I knew what to do. You can't be taught anything if your teacher is asleep. He drove too fast during a downpour and on downgrades that had warning signs about truck turnover. I was always afraid he was doing to fall asleep because he drove from Midnight to Noon. I tried to contact the Student Review Board...

Swift Transportation - New York - Property Damage/Leaving Scene Of Accident

Posted:    AllRoCol
Complaint Rating:  60 % with 5 votes
A tractor trailer turned up on my road one night, past 3 P.M. This is a dead end road, that few accidentally stumble upon. This was a double trailer truck, that looked very new. Due to the street light and my insomnia, I saw their logo, clear as day. This was a company I had never heard of. When I did a search for it, sure enough, the logo matches a trucking company, named Swift.

The truck attempted to turn around in our family business' parking lot and apparently backed straight into the side of the building, doing significant damage to the building, the stairs, and the parking...

My husband became an o/o in October, he was terminated for a minor accident and told to get his stuff out of the truck, he was released from the lease agreement. Now we are being harassed by a collection agency saying we owe $95000. We do not have the truck, do not know where it is. There was minor damage done. No citation issued. no property damage. It was in the kanab desert. I tried calling rapid response to ask them what happened to the truck, they said they will not talk to us. They said we still owe for the truck, the agreement was for the lease not the truck. WHAT????????? We have no idea...

Swift Transportation - Awful company

Drivers on this account who are in the click (called pets) make 1200 to 1500 per week, while those who aren't make 700 to 800. The pets pay for this with under table payments. Drivers who refuse to do this are given what are called punishment loads and treated badly in order to make them quit or transfer to another account. Many are given backloads that take several hours and get paid a stop fee of 15.00. Drivers aren't offered the pet status unless the management is sure they will accept. The pet who told me this was fired by swift safety and the Monroe Office could not stop it. Drivers...

Swift I thought was a good trustworthy company. They seemed upfrint and honest. In may of this year there was a minor incident I had. I offered to take a suspension and pay for the damages. But no I was discharged on the spot over 1000 miles from my home terminial. Though I was given a bus ticket it stills seem unfair that your given 1 chance thats it. Had I known that they could have kept their job. One chance never was told that and they basically told me tough shit....

Swift Transportation - Awful experience

Any driver who attended a Swift Academy and terminated from 2004-2007, if you had a balance on your loan, you know all your earnings were withheld and applied to your loan balance. Every penny was kept despite minimum wage laws. Well you are entitled to get that back. The key is you have to call and request it they will not do it voluntary. Same thing with drivers that overpaid on their student loan accounts. If you overpaid they will reimburse you but you have to call in. Swift has hundreds of accounts in which drivers made over payments on and instead of issuing refunds they are waiting for drivers...

I am one of many who have been advised to retake all my tests to keep my CDL. I have obtained an attorney and are looking for as many individuals to pursue a class action suit against Swift. There will be no fees. I have information of who to contact. It would be greatly appreciated for the word to be spread out in order for all those who have been affected by this to get justice. I would like to hear from as many individuals who are interested in pursuing this to the end. Note there will only be one individual who will be the main plaintiff to stand for all those who agree to sign up for legal...
