How Swift could improve driver satisfaction

(Phenix City, Al USA)

if we could have fridges an an inverter to run a microwave i would give the a 10, i don't care about APUS that much with 26,000 trucks that would cut into their Yacht money, I know at Swift its all about them and not the driver. I don't hang out at the truck stops or eat fast food and want to run 3 months and go home for 1-3 days but I miss having the ability to eat healthy. Food is to expensive on the road, I have a crock pot, Electric cooler and lunch box oven but they have their limits. I could keep and prepare and store better quality foods if I had a inverter and a real fridge, I have heard the Kenworth T680 have fridge's in them when they get them but they take it out,not sure f its true but it has a place for one and the power is already there for it. I would buy and pay them to install an inverter but they won't even do that, I guess its true what I have been Told that Swift doesn't care really to keep drivers and it not their goal or priority to since they have about 200 hundred new victims coming out of their schools each week.


If Swift would just allow these two things I could retire here they have good trucks and plenty of loads, the sliding pay scale and that ranking system they have sucks but they would be truly best in class if they could just curve their greed for money and absolute wealth for themselves and give us a little of that suppose Swift Charity they always brag to the customers and public about, after all charity begins at home

SO I RATE IT A -3 JUST BECAUSE THE FACT THEY DON'T PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH TO THEIR CUSTOMERS AND THE PUBLIC FOR THE DRIVERS!!!

Making more running Dedicated then over the Road NEW
by: Antoine

Its funny but I'm making more money running Dedicated more consistently than i did over the road
and am treated better by dispatch than i was when over the road,curious? and home daily! should have gone dedicated at first i will never become a homeless vagabond over the road driver again(bad joke)

Eating good clean home cooked meals, time with family and a good idea of my weekly pay to set a budget and not sitting for days away from home waiting on a load PRICELESS!!!!!

My hat off to the Over Road Drivers who get so little respect for the sacrifices they make everyday
so the public has it desires met not knowing the true price to get their items to them that the drivers pay each day!!!!!!!

Look. Let's be real, every relationship depends on both parties getting something, feeling a mutual respect or at least a liking off one another. Swift does not care and doesn't care if you know it. This company is probably just like all the other training companies. Use it for what it is, a stepping stone. This company is too large to give us even a hint, of an illusion of a whisper of respect or acknowledgement. Stay away. You just plain get lost in the system, and they do not care.

Swift could use some vendor satisfaction improvement as well NEW
by: Anonymous

They promise 37 day net payment but I've yet to get one (without dunning them) before 60 days. I guess Jerry Moyes can't remember being a owner/operator and scrounging for loads and payments any more.
