Swift Transportation / awful experience

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Any driver who attended a Swift Academy and terminated from [protected], 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 to contact them. if you attended Academy in 2003, they have no physical signed contracts they were all lost. I worked for Swift and have lots of info should anyone need it. Also they can not take away your CDL license even though contract state that. Swift is putting students through school knowing they can not put them on a truck and now you have just entered into a contract in which you owe $3900 and can not repay because Swift is not hiring and no other company will hire you with no experience. They would approve students to go to academy and get them to sign contract and then say they are not hireable due to unspecified reasons...They just did shady stuff to their drivers.

    That guy that owns Swift, also owns Central out of West Valley, Utah. He's making millions scamming driver's left an right. Including building casino's in Nevada. Both these companies are a RIP OFF. The "G" should investigate both companies. Or I should say all of them, the poor driver out here just trying to make a living an its getting harder an harder to do so. Remember a company can put anything in your DAC to make you look bad. The hell with SWIFT AND CENTRAL.

    Swift is populated with dipwads and other things i cant post. The "GODS" they think they are is being challenged by people like you and me.Unfortunatly the whole country is adopting their attitude.Workers are a dime a dozen, so who cares what we do to them? Even in China the workers are starting to revolt against poor working conditions and low wages.How about here? We still eat the employrs [censor].WHY? No guts. I used to work at SWIFT, THEY FIRED ME WHEN A FED EX truck hit me on the left side of tractor cause FED EX COULDNT PASS ME in time to avoid a head on collision with an on coming tractor trailer.In other words the jack [censor] couldnt drive or didnt care, an all to common trait of some drivers out there.But SWIFT SAID it was my fault.THIS WAS A TWO LANE ROAD, one in each direction.

    this is a bait and switch -it's against the law - swift is guilty of this - find others - file a class action suit against them
