West Side Transport Offers $1,000 Sign-On Bonus For Company Drivers & Owner Operators

September 24, 2010

West Side Transport has announced its plan to pay $1,000 sign-on bonuses to all newly hired company drivers and owner operators.

Director of Recruiting Josh Schauf stated that the bonuses come in response to the company’s rapidly increasing freight business. “We’re growing and we’ve got freight available for drivers right now; we just don’t have enough drivers to handle it.  We’re looking to get good quality drivers in the seats of these trucks immediately.”

“This company has a lot to offer a driver in addition to great pay,” said Schauf. “Drivers have good relationships with their driver managers and with each other. We place our drivers as a top priority here. They are the most important aspect of what we do.”

A special Recruiting Hotline has been set up to handle calls for these jobs. To start the application process or get more information, drivers should contact a recruiter at 1-800-677-5627.
