Swift Transportation / overcharged greatly
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 on this account know who the pets are but not why they seem to get all the good loads. An example of a good load is a delivery to the Monroe Wal-Mart which is 6 miles round-trip and pays the driver $75 flat fee. A bad $75 load would be Douglasville Sam's Club which is 149 miles. 0 t0 150 miles pays $75. A good $125 load would be Macon Sam's Club at 156 miles. A bad $125 load would be Ashville, NC Sam's Club at 374 miles. 151 to 378 mile load pay flat $125. Drivers making 700 to 800 may drive up to 1800 miles while a pet making 1200 to 1500 may drive less than 1500 miles. Mileage 379 and over pays .33 per mile.
This is second hand information from an angry driver who has been fired but it explains the disparity in pay that occurs on this account. I left this account because of the hostile work environment that was shown by the management with the message that I was not welcome there.
