Paschall Truck Lines Announces November Awards
Paschall Truck Lines (PTL) congratulates the winners of the November 2005 Company Driver and Owner Operator of the Month Awards. Wiley Mitchem is the Company Driver of the Month and Hector Flores is the Owner Operator of the Month.
Mitchem is a veteran driver with 33 years of experience, five of those with PTL. He was an owner operator for four years before deciding to sell his truck and sign on as a company driver. He plans to stay with PTL as long as he can. He would also like to sell his house in Florida and move back to the Northern US. He had quite an unusual experience during the time he and his wife drove as a team. While they were waiting in Missouri to pick up a load of cheese in an underground cave, a S.W.A.T. team used their truck as a cover!
Flores has been a PTL driver for just over a year but has been driving for ten. Before joining PTL he was a dispatcher, driver personnel supervisor and driver for another company. Flores really enjoys how drivers extend a hand to someone they don’t even know. He says he has received help many times and it is only natural for him to return the favor. He also likes meeting a variety of people on the road. When at home, Flores goes fishing and spends time with his family. His plans for the future include expanding his current fleet.
PTL provides driving opportunities for solos, teams and owner operators. The company offers a competitive pay package, including a $1,500 sign-on bonus for owner operators. PTL also offers a competitive fuel surcharge along with a fuel bonus, incentives to run in New York City and Canada, guaranteed home time and no loading or unloading.
