Looking to get back into trucking... the info about companies out there is overwhelming and most everyone seems to consider themselves to be 'a leader in the industry with competitive wages and benefits'. So I'm thinking about trying a different approach by listing what I'm looking for and maybe someone out there either knows about, or works for a company that could be a good match. Region: Terminal or drop yard in or around Greensboro, NC Run: Dedicated; Truckload; 4-5 days out, 2-3 days home. Northeast run okay, but no NYC, Long Island or Canada. Miles: All driven miles paid with minimum starting pay at $0.40 per mile and yearly increase. Equipment: Dedicated truck. Dry van, no touch freight. Decent maintained trucks/ trailers. Automatic transmission preferred. (have a bum left knee) Trucks governed at no less than 68 mph. Night driving okay. Pay for drop and hook; live loads and detention pay after 3 hours waiting. Safety bonus and pay for 'clean DOT inspections) Must have a positive pet policy. Reasonable pet deposit okay. Allowed to smoke in truck. Benefits: Decent medical/ prescription insurance with max of 1K yearly deductible. Vision and dental; matching 401K; option of signing up for short/ long term disability and life insurance. Waiting period for starting benefits of no more than 60 days from start of employment. Major holidays paid and at least one week vacation after first year, as well as 2-3 PTO days. Option for single and team driving employment. Size of company not as important as management and dispatch providing a positive and supportive working environment that treats employees with respect and fairness. I'm looking to get in with a sound company where I can retire in 15 or so years. Me: Three years experience; Hazmat and tanker endorsements; clean driving record; hard working, honest, loyal and dependable. Positive attitude and good team player. Always willing to go the extra mile to get the job gone. Hope to hear back from some members. But please don't try to sell me your company because there is a referral bonus in it for you. Keep it real. Thanks!
