Swift Transportation Corporation Swift Trucking Falsified reason for seperation of employment Internet
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Trucking company recruiters
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Good Luck!
I was employed by Swift and began new driver training March 2007. At the time I was on probation for a felony. I included my felony on my job application with Swift. I also spoke to my recruiter about how they could work around my probation. The recruiter said it should not be an issue. Prior to leaving the state to attend training I had to provide my probation with the details of where I would be staying as well as the reason for my stay. My probation officer verified with the Swift recruiter that I would attend training in Syracus New York from 3/27/07-4/24/07. After completion of my training I was sent home and told to wait for my mentor to contact me. I waited a few weeks and finally received a call from Swift that a mentor should be contacting me in a few days.
When I asked were I would be going, the recruiter said they would not know until the the day the mentor would pick me up. Well that would be a problem due to the fact that I needed to ask probation permission at least 7 days in advance to leave the state. The recruiter said that was the best they could do. The recruiter also mentioned that it would be hard to say what route I would be taking until the last minute for all of my on the road training. None of this was explained to me when I was hired. This was my first company I applied to right out of driving school. Swift gave me the impression they would have no problem accommodating my probation terms. Well my probation officer was not comfortable with giving me a pass with such limited amount of time to verify my itinerary.
Long story short I had to stop working for Swift due to the short notice of scheduling. I was not aware till recently that Swift listed me as falsifying my job application. I applied for a job recently at CR England, due to the fact that I completed my probation. I would of had the opportunity to take a job there but Swift listed on DAC and DriverFacts that I lied about having a felony on my application. I did not lie and Swift new about my history. I have tried calling and writing Swift about this situation. I am not sure if I will need a lawyer to get this fixed. I really do not have money for a lawyer, but at the same time I need to have my record cleared.
Why would Swift do this?
