Minnesota-based J&R Schugel has announced a $15,000 sign-on bonus for experienced over-the-road drivers who join the carrier before the end of the year.

The sign-on incentive is for company drivers with a minimum of 6 months experience. Drivers will have the opportunity to earn an additional $500 per month for 2 1/2 years after their first full month of employment.

If eligible, drivers can receive $250 for 7,500 to 9,999 dispatched miles driven in a month or $500 for 10,000 or more dispatched miles driven.

“The incentive directly relates to driver productivity and retention, while giving them an additional earning potential on top of their base pay rate,” said Courtney Wittman, director of human resources for J&R Schugel. “Once the sign-on concludes a company driver will then be eligible for the Employee Stock Ownership Plan and start earning shares towards retirement.”

In addition to top pay and achievable incentives, J&R Schugel said its company drivers can expect late model equipment, compensation review every six months, rider program, pet policy, guaranteed home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and a 100% employee owned company.
