Hear how and why we got started in the ‘people business.’
From the desk of Harry Norris:
Dear Truck Driver,
I’m happy and excited to have you here. I’m also glad you showed interest in our business and want to learn more.
Now, I can tell you all about the great benefits our drivers receive, including top CPM and a competitive Sign-on bonus, but I want to talk to you about a value that is extremely close to me.
For me, everyone’s worth in any position at our company is the same and equally important. We all work towards the same goal using different skills.
At Howell’s, we don’t have much turnover. We know our families, we know our friends. We have been there as our employees have children and their children have children.
Most of the core team at Howell’s have been loving coming to work here for over 30 years. That love is what has kept us in business for 61+ years now, and we’re always changing, growing, and adapting.
I’m personally looking to add more hardworking drivers, just like you, to be part of our family here in Cloverdale, Virginia, and our 4 other terminals across the Southeast.
When you come work at Howell’s as an experienced driver, you can earn .60 cpm straight-up.
We also offer a $5,000 Sign-On Bonus for Line-Haul Drivers.
First installment of $1,000.00 on first paycheck following 30 days of continuous employment.
Second installment of $1,500.00 on first paycheck following 90 days of continuous employoment.
Third and final installment of $2,500.00 on the first paycheck following 180 days of continuous employment.
We offer Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance as well as short and long term disability insurance.
We offer a 401K contribution.
How about a per diem that will supplement you perfectly, an EZ Pass to save time and frustration and we will directly deposit your check in to your account!
Need More Proof?
Don’t just take our word for it. Hear it from drivers just like YOU.
