HUGHES TRANSPORT SERVICESHughes Transport Services is a new company, recently opened, looking for the first drivers and staff to join our ranks. Since this company is new, we are still working to set up all the forms and applications but have a basic template setup and are ready to start operations. We are seeking qualified Company Drivers, Owner Operators and Staff/Management personnel. For a detailed list of open and available positions, please review the RECRUITING PACKET link provided below.
APPLICATION PROCESSHughes Transport Services utilizes a different setup to begin the hiring process than most VTC's that I have seen. To start, we ask applicants to fill out a very brief PRE-HIRE form with very basic and generic information with only a couple questions. Upon review, if we feel that a working partnership would be beneficial to us both, we will offer a conditional approval dependent on review of a full application. The reason for this is we believe that it is not beneficial to us or you to fill out this lengthy application and go through the entire recruiting process only to find a partnership wouldn't be beneficial to the company or you.
1) Fill out PRE HIRE FORM
2) Upon acceptance, fill out the full APPLICATION FORM and RELEASE OF INFORMATION packet.
3) Recruiters will review and investigate the information and make a final hiring decision.
PAY AND BENEFITSWhile it may seem like a step backwards from other VTC's, Hughes Transport Services offers a competitive wage based on REAL company wages. While the pay rates seem really low, this is to simulate the rates that employees may make if employed with real companies. With that being said, we do also have deductions that come out of driver pay for both Company applicants and Owner Operators. While it's true that Company Applicants don't have to make truck payments in the real world, we have included some things like that (Company drivers making truck payments) to keep things fair between going Company or Owner Op. with Hughes Transport Services.
In addition to standard pay rates, each driver is set up with a profile. Driver advancement is dependent upon graduating through a tiered system with Hughes Transport Services. Drivers have milestones they need to reach in order to advance through the tiers. The ranking system is as follows:
Tier 0 - 5
Each dispatch completed nets the driver a small amount of points added to their profile. To advance to the next tier, drivers need to achieve mileage AND load completion milestones.
Drivers are paid upon acceptance of each trip report submitted. EXAMPLE: Driver submits trip report - Manager reviews report and sends information to Payroll - Payroll pays driver upon getting the information.

NOTES - Hughes Transport Services does not utilize a forum or anything for employment. All dispatches are sent out via email and trip report forms and various forms are provided upon hire.
Thanks and we look forward to working with you!
