Special Programs at Swift

From recognition to opportunities, Swift has you covered

Because your job should be as meaningful and enjoyable as your life, we've developed several special programs to help you get more from your time on, and off, the road. 

Rider & Dog Programs

We know that life on the road can get lonely at times – which is why we make it easy to bring someone along. With our Rider Program, you can bring a significant other, child or friend with you and get paid to travel and see the country with a loved one. 

And with our Dog Program, trucking with a dog is easy. We just ask that your pup weigh 40 pounds or less, be friendly, and have proper vaccinations1.

Terminal Amenities

As a driver, our Terminals can be your home away from home. The place where you meet friendly faces, make new friends, see old ones, get a hot shower, a good meal and a little "me" time. Although our Terminal amenities vary by location – and are constantly being updated and upgraded – you can generally find: 

  • Driver lounges

  • Showers

  • Bathrooms

  • Laundry facilities

  • Gyms

  • Food and Convenience Markets where you can grab a bite or small items for the road

And if you've had your dog in your truck all day, they're a great place to take a walk, burn off some energy and feed your "best friend" before the next leg of your journey.

In addition, every Terminal offers ways to take care of your truck and stay safe on the road. Each gives you something different, but some of the truck amenities available include: 

  • Tire shops 

  • Truck washes 

  • Tractor shops 

  • Trailer shops 

  • Fuel islands

SNHU: Earn Your Degree for Free 

Because we want you to learn, grow and achieve your goals, we've partnered with Southern New Hampshire University to offer our full-time Company Drivers access to an exclusive online degree program. This way, you can earn an associate's or bachelor's degree while being employed with Swift, and you can do it all online and at your own pace. Best of all, Drivers and one eligible dependent will have 100% of their tuition costs covered by Swift, as well as financial assistance with your initial supplies and Wi-Fi expense.

Veterans Scholarships & First Responders Scholarships

At Swift, we know that making a career change can be scary – and we support you. Through our Swift Salutes program, which includes our veterans CDL training scholarship (available to veterans, their spouses and dependents) you can earn your Class A CDL at no cost2. In addition, you can use your VA benefits and take advantage of our nationally approved Military Apprenticeship program.

And because we also work to honor our nation's first responders, we have opened up our full-ride scholarship program to you, too.

1Drivers should receive Terminal Leader approval for their dogs.

Swift offers a full-ride scholarship to veterans and first responders for the Swift Academy. For more information, give us a call at 866-437-3050
