Driver Succeeds in Lease Purchase at FFE
Driver Donald Douglas of Glen Heights, TX is working his way towards owning a truck, thanks to the lease purchase program at FFE. The program offers the opportunity to own a truck without a lot of money down and the added benefit of a business support system. Credit isn’t an issue as long as drivers have a clean DAC and MVR. Drivers can start off right with a $2,000 sign on bonus, a $2,600 referral bonus plan, full tank of fuel on first dispatch and a $200 fuel credit for weeks two, three and four. “The program allows drivers like me to take it to the next level but it is also convenient and works with your lifestyle,” Douglas points out.
Douglas says, “I didn’t know what to expect of the program, but I knew what I had to do.” In 2005, Douglas averaged $1.55 per mile with a generous fuel surcharge, exceeding the national average of $1.11. Douglas is still going strong and says his greatest accomplishment is not failing during the first year.
Douglas was laid off from his job in telecommunications over two years ago. When researching new jobs, he came across information on truck driving. “I did some more research and the rest is history,” said Douglas.
In addition to participating in the lease purchase program, Douglas is an FFE Road Team member. The Road Team is a driver mentor program that gives guidance to new drivers. “If I can help someone, that helps me and the company too,” said Douglas.
Away from work, Douglas enjoys spending time with his six-year-old son, Tore Dechun. They hang out and especially like to play video games together.
