We are a small family company of 10 trucks with plans to purchase a few more after the 1st of the year. We are located here in Grand Rapids and are currently looking for a driver who lives here in Michigan to join our family. As a former driver myself, I understand how important home time is with your family and the importance to keep moving while you are out on the road.
We have a direct customer here in town that we do 75% of our business with which allows our drivers to run 3000 miles and are home resetting on weekends on average 25x a year, and maybe more as we continue to grow with them and add new equipment. 90% of their freight is roundtrip so not a lot of wasted time sitting in docks like your current company. Our company's average DH from your stop to your next pickup is 27 miles, and our D.O.T scores are some of the area's BEST, so stop getting pulled in all the time with your current company.
As a owner of the company, I can personally guarantee you several things.
* You will drive a clean and professionally maintained truck
* You will average 3000+ miles per week
* You will only be expected to stay out 2 weeks at a time
* You will run paper logs until the mandate in Dec.
* You will average between $1100-$1500 per week
* You will have myself as your dispatcher.
* You will be paid every Friday
* You will have a $200 per week advance if need be starting on your 1st day
* You may take a passenger
* You will haul on average 10,000 #'s on all customer freight.
* You will haul general freight when customer freight is slow, usually not further west than Nebraska
* You will not run anything East Coast past Pennsylvania, which is only once and a while
This position is for a driver who is looking to be on 1099, with the option of W2 after the 1st of the year.
This position does not allow for pets, sorry, some of our receivers do not allow them.
I personally know there are a lot of horrible companies out there that promise you guys the world and they never delivery. They offer you the same old song and dance just to get you into their truck and then it all changes, again! What I have described to you is the honest truth. You will run, you will make great money and you will be home on a lot of weekends, especially in the spring & summer months, which everybody loves right? I have never asked a driver to chain up in the winter, I believe that to be a major risk to everyone.
Again, I am looking for 1 driver at the moment. If you feel this might fit your needs please give me a call directly and we can discuss the position in detail. I do not offer any sign on bonuses, I don't feel I need to bribe you to work for an honest family operation, do you? When I see a huge sign on bonus being offered, I see a company that is desperate.
You must have a current Class A CDL
You must have a fairly decent driving record. No drug or alcohol related charges.

Please call for more details and make sure to leave a message if I miss you along with your phone number. Again, I am looking for an honest, hard working company driver to join my family, I hope to hear from you.
