Panther Expedited Services Offers $15,000 Sign-On Bonus

February 13, 2012

Panther Expedited Services is implementing a new owner operator Sign-On Bonus of up to $15,000 for tractor teams and straight truck teams.

“We work with the best owner operators in the business and we’re willing to give them a substantial incentive to partner with us,” says Kyle Mitchin, Director of Recruiting at Panther. “The highly qualified teams we seek are the ones who go above and beyond to serve their customers-so we’re going above and beyond when it comes to their bonuses.”

Mitchin explains that while sign-on bonuses will be available for all new Panther contractors, the top pay out will go to tractor teams and straight truck teams who have their HAZMAT endorsement, passports, and a secret security clearance. Those teams will be eligible for up to $15,000 in bonuses, paid to the truck over a 180-day period. “These owner operators deserve a top bonus for meeting our qualifications,” he said. “We have a high business volume right now and it’s a great opportunity for teams who are looking for industry-leading compensation with a top rewards program.”

The Sign-On Bonus is available immediately for new straight truck teams. New tractor teams will become eligible for the bonus beginning March 1, 2012.

For drivers looking to become owner operators or single owner operators looking to become a team, Panther has an answer. “From our tractor lease purchase and driver recruiting assistance to Premier Driver Rewards Program, we have a solution to drivers’ needs,” Mitchin states. “We do all we can to reward our owner operators. They take care of our customers, and we take care of them. They’re the lifeline of Panther.”
