James Garcia
Double Diamond Driver

“Job security is what drew me to Swift. No matter what happens to the economy or what direction it goes in, I know that I will always have a job in truck driving.”

Anita McCoy
Double Diamond Driver

“I love to travel and I love to drive. This job was a no brainer for me. It’s not for everyone, but if you stick with it, it pays off….“Swift is an outstanding company because there are so many opportunities. Local, over the road, dedicated…there are so many opportunities within this industry.”

Roberto Ventura
Double Diamond Driver

 “Swift was one of the few jobs that let me live in my hometown. I had studied engineering, but all the job opportunities were expecting me to move out of state. Yes, as a truck driver, I am on the road often. But I am grateful that Swift never made me change where I call home.”
