employment type: full-time

We're running out of ideas in trying to hire drivers. We try to treat our drivers like we would want to be treated, but it's still quite difficult to find good help.

We have a fleet of 14 company trucks that are late model (2015 & newer Kenworths and Peterbilts) and we take good care of our equipment. We are a family-owned and operated company. I work with one of my brothers, my two sisters, my daughter, one niece and two nephews. Our drivers can come into our offices and talk to any one of us at any given time.

Drivers don't have to have end dump experience. We can train you. I will say that end dumps are not for everyone. Some drivers can be quite nervous when the trailer is raised and unloading. However, most drivers that have pulled one for a while wouldn't want to pull any other type of trailer.

We operate in approximately 30 states with freight that regularly loads out of Erie that allows drivers to be home weekends if they choose. We pay our drivers 24% of the truck's gross earnings if they have end dump experience, which equates to an average weekly gross payroll of $1,200. We have health insurance that starts after 60 days of employment, paid vacation and a safety bonus. Our drivers will gross between $55,000 and $70,000 per year.

We know driving jobs are easy to come by. We also know our company and our type of work is not a good fit for everyone. We're not going to blow smoke and tell you want we think you want to hear, just to get you to come to work for us.

Good drivers are hard to find. What we ask most of our drivers is good communication and honesty and we always try to give the same back to our drivers.

If you have a class A CDL and have at least two years of verifiable over the road experience and would like to take a chance on our company, we think you'll be pleased. Give us a try!

You can submit an application from our website at or call & we can send one via mail, email or fax. If you are hired by us, we rent a car to get you here.

We're also looking for owner/operators with their own end dump trailers. We pay 89%.
