At Swift, there is much more to a career in trucking than just being an excellent driver. There is also a tremendous opportunity to pass along your knowledge to the next generation of drivers while enhancing your own earning potential. This is the role of a driving mentor.

LIFE WITH MENTEES
After earning their Class A CDL, our new drivers will spend time behind the wheel on a mentor's truck hauling loads, delivering freight, taking care of customers' needs, and most importantly, learning how to safely operate a tractor-trailer. During this time, you'll teach them to hone their skills in safe driving techniques how to efficiently operate a tractor-trailer, to take care of their truck and freight, provide quality customer service and learn how to balance life on the road with life at home. But that's just the beginning.
Our driver mentor program allows us to maintain our safe reputation by helping create capable, confident truck drivers, while also delivering on the promises to our customers. From day one, safety is our top priority at Swift. That goes for our team members, customers, and everyone we share the road with.
