Obviously no mention of how much is paid for drops and picks. $10?
    .45 cpm to run USA
    You will definitely be recruiting from the shallow end of the gene pool

    Mr.Wonderful. The worst part about forums...Is that instead of asking questions politely. People respond rudely. They jump to the worst conclusions and get angry and resentful for no reason.
    I understand that a lot of drivers out there have been burned in one way or another... at some point in their career.

    I feel that being completely transparent in regards to what we offer is the right thing to do, to ensure that everyone is on the same page.(especially regarding our pay package)
    I understand that not all trucking companies operate with consideration and respect.
    I know that other companies butter up new/potential drivers with LIES. Such as promising them huge incentives and bonuses... then when the time comes down to the bottom line...they change their policies, or tell the driver that they don't qualify for the bonuses, etc.
    Not only is that UNFAIR... but it paints the rest of us with a negative brush.

    For the sake of being completely open and honest.
    Yes, Wait time is paid after 2 hours for FTL. I should have been clearer, in saying that a majority of our freight is LTL...and I guess I should have also mentioned that its not often at all, that our drivers have to wait to be loaded/unloaded.
    In regards to the paid stops- we pay $35.00 for every single pick and drop.
    By no means do we rip our drivers off, or expect them to sit around unnecessarily.
    We are family owned and operated company and have been in business for 20+ years.
    We have many drivers that have been with us for over 10 Years.
    They are the face of our company, they represent us professionally and they work hard.
    These are the same drivers that choose to stay because they are treated well and paid fairly.

    I'm sorry if my original post offended you, or anyone else.
    It was not my intention & I Hope you have a great day.

    We at SGT also have a training program for new drivers that are willing to drive to US.
    3.5 day orientation/ 1 week in yard training/ 6 weeks over the road training with a trainer.
    Our trucks are Freightliner Cascadia's 2015 and newer. We operate out of Brampton Terminal with terminals in Quebec, Calgary, Houston , Laredo.
    During training you would get paid hourly rate $16.75 first 6 months, $17.45 6-12 months,for orientation you would get $250.
    After training when you go Solo it is 35cpm, $18.50 picks/drops,$12.50 switches for 0-6 months experience.
    6-12 months experience= 42cpm US long, 46cpm shortdistance states, $18.50 picks /drops, $12.50 switches.
    And every year of experience the pay goes up.
    In Brampton we are only 50 trucks, so it is more personalized and we go every state except California,Alaska,Hawaii
    If you like to know more please email sgokce@sgt.ca
    Thank you and wish you all the best.
    I been at this 40 years and I absolutely see no reason to pay new driver less per mile than experienced driver as they are both generating the same revenue for the blood sucking thieves who employ them. My current employer of over 20 years wanted me to start at a 10% discount my first 3 months of employment, when I asked why they could not come up with a reasonable explanation other than "company policy" which they determined could be overlooked if I would start working immediately.
    I absolutely won't cross the border for work and sure as heck would not do it without being paid a premium. Have not run south in 20 years and its only getting worse down there. Not worth the aggravation without a substantial premium. Let the greenhorns have that nonsense.

    Seriously, ERB has lowered the bar, hiring anyone with a pulse I believe! One of their geniuses ran off the highway 1/2 click west of Lac Des Mille Lac bait and tackle this week. Must have been sound asleep to bury as deep in the swamp as he did.
    FYI...the truckstop at Lac Des Milles Lac has reopened, don't know anything about it. Tower Hill at Ignace been closed a few months now

    I'm surprised more companies don't advertise for drivers here. Is it me,,,something I said

    I tried a couple of years ago to contact some of the larger trucking companies, both East and West, without ANY noticeable success.

    Its impossible to find the person who might make the decision to advertise here. Emails sent to their generic email address go off into the cloud and likely ignored. I even tried to respond through their driver sign up web page and again, NO ONE contacted me and no ads appeared on the forum.

    Perhaps ... I should have made up an information package and sent it by Canada Post.
    Cheers

    One of the good things about living in a small community is when I don't know what I'm doing, someone else does.

    My friend went to a heavily advertised job fair at Gardewine last month that clearly stated hours of fair as 11 am to 8 pm. My friend arrived from Beardmore On at 7:10. The clowns hosting the event were gone. He also emailed 3 requests for their "new pay scale" The basic question never answered, only a "phone us" Well if he wanted to listen to some recruiter lie through his teeth that would be the avenue to travel. Requesting information via email keeps the lies and BS to a minimum

    I'm surprised more companies don't look for drivers on forums as well.
    However...Me personally, I network a lot on Facebook and Linked In. I find that's where most of my recent applicants have come from.
    Other than the odd driver that calls after speaking to our drivers at truck stops/customer locations, etc.

    I'm a moderator on here and also the Safety and Compliance manager of a Kitchener based 100 vehicle fleet. I will not advertise as I feel it is a conflict of interest and could put the site in a compromised position.

    That being said, I do most of my hiring by word-of-mouth from my drivers.

    What can I say? After undertaking what many deemed was an impossible task, we moved 3 elephants from Toronto zoo to a sanctuary in California, without any serious glitches. After doing that, word of mouth makes it easier to review applications for exceptional drivers.

    So, when drivers say it's like working at a circus...
    There's a nap for that.
