    Last night it was fine. My projected bonus was showing around $500. This morning I check again and it's showing $60. Nothing change from last night and this morning driving wise. Is anyone else having the same problem?

    Guess I'm going to get screwed. I knew this new bonus structure was a scam.

    Tried calling around all day. None of the swift driver leaders know anything about this new bonus format.

    You should just chill and see how it works out.

    Right now it looks like zero, unless I can pull some good miles in the last days of this month.
    I will probably make the base level of 6,000 miles, but I have no chance of getting any performance bonus.

    I just had 5 days down in the shop, and 3 days earlier was a home time.
    Lots of down time this month.

    But this new bonus schedule has yet to be worked out fully.
    Those days in the shop should not count against my bonus, which is one thing that needs to be worked out.

    With the old 3 month system it could have been absorbed by a few good weeks, but this system leaves one stranded because of the short time to make it up.


    Like I advised you to do, I will chill for now.
    It is not worth getting all worked up about these things, especially in the newer stages of development.
    I will bring it up to my DM, and she will bring it up to our TM, and he will bring it higher.
    Calm and rational is the ticket to success, not ranting and raving with 'in the moment' things.
     
    JOHNQPUBLIC and MysticHZ Thank this.

    There is a lengthy video or two on the Swift YouTube page that explains all of it.

    Yeah, mine went from over $600 projected to around $150. Unsure what's going on. Definitely a bit disappointed. But, the original, over $600 bonus for a single month did seem awfully generous.
    I'm just gonna wait and see what happens.
    In good news, I did just go over the minimum 6000 miles needed. So, I do now qualify for whatever bonus they end up giving out.
