Drivers can make up to $88,000 in their first year with the bonuses that are available.
What is the home time?
We require our drivers to be out for a minimum of 3 weeks and you earn 1 day off for every week that you are out. The reason is because of the long loads that we have, many over 2,000 miles. We primarily look for loads that go cross country and that makes it nearly impossible to get drivers home more often than that.
What type of trucks and how fast do they go?
Our fleet has 2019 to 2022 automatic Freightliner Cascadias and we are phasing out the 2019s. They are governed at 68 mph and have the PasSmart system that allows for 70 mph for 30 minutes a day to pass slower vehicles. We also have Great Dane trailers with Carrier reefer units that are no more than 3 years old.
Where do you go?
All of the lower 48 states.
What is your hiring area?
We hire in most of the 48 states. Please call recruiting for details
Do you allow pets and riders?
Yes, we allow 1 pet under 45 lbs but no large or aggressive animals. Any exceptions must be approved by management. We also allow riders. We allow both of these on day one.
How do you get to orientation?
We try to use rental car with Enterprise and Hertz in most cases, and flights as a secondary option.
When does orientation start and how long is it?
Monday through Thursday and it is 2 full days.
How much experience do you require?
2 years minimum over the road experience is required.
What do you haul?
Most of our freight is temperature controlled but there are some dry loads too. Everything is full truckload.
How many miles can I get?
You can get as many as you can legally drive. We normally dispatch you on your next load the day before the scheduled pickup. We want to keep you moving. Our drivers normally get 3,000+ miles every week.
Do you pay Household Mover's Guide (HHG) miles?
Our routes and pay are calculated using Practical Miles which are about 10% higher than HHG miles.
Any driver facing cameras?
No, there is a camera mounted on the windshield facing forward only.
Can drivers take the truck home?
Yes, but we ask that you either park it at home or another safe area, preferably not a truck stop.
Does the trucks really have free satellite TV and satellite radio?
Yes, every truck is equipped with SiriusXM Satellite Radio, EpicView Satellite dish and receiver along with a 24 inch flat panel TV mounted in the bunk. Every truck is also equiped with APUs, fridge/freezer and 1,500-watt power inverters.
Do you pay salary to drivers?
Yes, the first 4 weeks we do offer all drivers $1,500 weekly salary to get acclimated to the Holland Enterprise way of trucking OTR. Be sure to ask recruiting for details.
Do you have Per Diem?
Yes, you have the option of choosing to be paid with per diem at the rate of .16 non taxed and the balance taxed.
Does my recruiter get a bonus for hiring me?
No, our recruiters do not work against each other, we are a team that works together to get the best drivers for the company.
Do you take drivers that have gone through the SAP (Substance Abuse Professional) program?
Unfortunately we do not accept drivers that have gone though the SAP program at this time.
