Announces 2007 Driver Referral Winner of the Year
Referring drivers in 2007 paid off in a big way for driver William Cox, as Maverick Transportation recently awarded him as their 2007 Driver Referral Winner of the Year.
Cox, a resident of Woodhaven, MI, started with the company’s Specialized division last August, but still managed to surpass other Mavericks in the hunt for the annual award. As winner, he will receive a vacation package valued at $1,700, $500 spending cash and a week of vacation.
Cox was very excited about the award and said the cash prize and bonuses will be used to help pay off some bills. In regards to his recruiting success he stated, “I just tell drivers the truth. I can’t promise them anything, so I just tell them about my experiences.” Cox randomly speaks with drivers when on the road and occasionally visits the school where he earned his CDL. Quite often however, he said he is approached by drivers from other companies at truck stops saying they want to know more about Maverick. “They (Maverick) go far and above any other company I have researched and I want to offer that information to other people,” Cox added.
Maverick implements a comprehensive Driver Referral Program annually with an emphasis on rewarding employees for their dedication to the fleet and the future of the company. Each employee with a referral hired receives a cash bonus, and the person with the most hires throughout the year is awarded a vacation package and spending money along with a week of vacation for their referral efforts. “Our referral program is one of the best lead sources we have, and we reward those who take part in the company’s driver recruiting efforts,” said Maverick’s Recruiting Manager Brad Vaughn.
