I was set up with a recruiter who told me all these great things about Swift. Told me that I got paid Orientation, .43 cent per mile once I started, paid holidays,benefits, etc.
I left my job and took an 7 hr bus trip to NY to start orientation. I thought i was hired from what the recruiter told me. NOT!! The orientation was still part of the hiring process.
The Instructors where extremely rude, didn't care about you at all. When I got there I found out the first day that there was NO PAID Orientation. I did and passed the DOT Physical and Road test yet they wanted to put me into a 3 week training program and 1 month with a Mentor driving. I was going to be getting paid $7.25 per hour on the road and the Mentor had a right to go home 3 times and I would have to "Baby sit" the truck WITHOUT getting paid for the down time, then after the month was over they wanted me to take another form of test.
I had to do all of this before they would consider hiring me. The company is a JOKE, the Hotel they put you up in is a JOKE, and they tell you from day one that only 4 people will pass. My first day, they kicked out 8 people for either not dressing correctly or other stuff. I would have NEVER left my job, wife, or children for this JOKE..
BEWARE they suck you in and it's all a lie.
OH and if you get a recruiter named Riley pretty much tell him to eat ****, because everything that came out of his mouth was a lie.. Worst Company in the world...
