My wife and i attended the acadamy in september. from day one we realized that we had been lied to by our recruiter. so we actively searched out the correct answers to the questions we had. we were given answers that sounded real good, but after the acadamy we realized that they had lied to us again.
one of these promises was new and safe equipment. the truck that we were given was an 04 that had been totaled in a front end colision. from day one the truck was falling apart. asking swift to fix the problems was useless.
this situation was mostly just irritating untill my wife and i got carbon monoxide poisoning.

i pulled into the swift yard near reno nv. and spoke to the "swift certified mechanic" and they said there was nothing wrong with the truck. i physicaly showed him where the leaks were on the exhaust pipe and they said they would fix it. two days later they again said there was nothing wrong with the truck. it was only after i blew up at the shop manager that they agreed to look again. they had to rework the whole system.
we got in the truck trusting that the mechanics knew their job and did it well and that our truck would be safe. wrong!!!

we made it just beyond the wyoming utah border on the wyoming side when the exhaust pipe fell off the turbo spewing carbon monoxide into the cab through the heater. that night in wyoming it was below 17 degrees.
after calling our driver manager to inform him of the problem and asking if we could get a room to escape the cold, we were informed that we would not only be fired, but that it would go on our record as load abandonment.
it took them 14 hours to repower the load. we were then asked to drive the truck to the service station so that they wouldnt have to call a wrecker. that was carbon monixide poisoning number two!

i realized that swift was not an honest company who cared for its drivers.
