Big G Express Awards Professional Driver with 2011 Ford Ranger in Driver Referral Contest
November 1, 2011
Big G Express Inc. awarded professional driver, Arlie Brewington, with a brand new Ford Ranger XLT at the end of a six month referral contest. Arlie, a Shelbyville resident, has worked for Big G Express for one and a half years and has referred 31 drivers (applications turned in) with 11 of those being hired. During the most recent contest that ran from March 4, 2011 to November 1, 2011, he had five hires.
In addition to winning the truck, Brewington has also made $1,945 in referral money with more to come. Drivers receive $500 for each driver hired, $250 the week the referral goes out and another $250 paid after they complete 90 days. The referring driver also receives 1 cent per mile for all the miles the recruit runs each month for the next six months. The current contest running through March 2012 offers a Kubota RTV as a grand prize with five runner up prizes with a choice of an iPad or flat screen TV.
“Big G really sold themselves. Only thing I had to do was tell the drivers what we had to offer. I have worked for several trucking companies and Big G Express is really the best company I have seen,” said Arlie Brewington.
Terry Conquest, Big G Express recruiting/retention manager, says that the carrier is always looking for ways to give back to its drivers. “Our driver referral programs do just that. Drivers like Arlie are sharing all the good things about Big G with other drivers which helps us keep our advertising cost down and in turn we are able to give back to our drivers those dollars that we would have spent through traditional advertising,” says Conquest.
