MONROEVILLE, Ala. — Hornady Transportation, a Daseke company, is offering a sign-on bonus of $6,000 to experienced drivers with one or more years of recent flatbed experience.
The bonus will pay out over 18 months in three-month increments to company drivers signing on with the company prior to the end of January.
As an added holiday bonus, the company is also providing $4,000 in Daseke stock for those who sign-on before Christmas.
The full stock amount vests over a period of five years.
The company also announced a new financial award for company drivers who have been with the company for 10 years or longer.
“We want to honor our long-term drivers with an added $1,000 bonus, plus give them $1,000 for every subsequent year going forward,” said Chris Hornady, Hornady’s CEO. “It’s our way of thanks for continuing to drive for Hornady.”
Hornady, which operates nearly 300 late model trucks, continues to grow, which “allows us to offer what we feel is a great driving opportunity with benefits to match,” Hornady said. “In the third quarter of this year we began offering guaranteed pay, and just last month we raised our pay structure to up to 56 cents per mile. The sign-on bonus and Daseke stock option complete the package and we’re excited to welcome new drivers to the Hornady family.”
Operating east of the Rockies, Hornady supports building products and steel industries. Hornady drivers can receive over-dimension, holiday, and clean-inspection pay, win prizes in a company rewards program and receive bonuses for referring drivers and customers to the company.
