Do I really need to say what has been a massive IMMEDIATE NEED, trucker’s are wanted now days?!?  From Headlines on WSJ, and LATimes, to the backyard and county registries, we all see the massive media attention, for the need for qualified operators in the Trucking Industry.  All this mass hysteria, is the drive and marketing for one thing—- RECRUITING.

RECRUITING:

The process of marketing to a desired qualified and quantifiable group in order to fill positions within the corporate structure or Dogma.

Want to know when a recruiter is lying?  You picked up the phone.       Couldn’t Resist!!

How to Successfully Recruit Millennial Truck Drivers – LoadDelivered

My reply:
“Listen, you believe that bullshit when you want……I have earned a blue million of these………Never once has any Carrier paid this to me after 90 days, 6 months, nor year……..on top of that they demand I give them my freight for free…….just because I am a driver and expected—–Shut the fuck up—-Tell that Carrier to place that money in escrow, My name, with directions to release that bonus at 90, 6months, a year—whatever term being offered; then we can talk……”

Stupid ass, thinks I do not know what a carrier can pay, will pay, and have seen the checks………

First off, let me tell you—How this got started…………….
I was opening an agency.  I needed some drivers.  My dad is fucking wonderful……Told him what i was doing and that I needed a driver.  I was gonna be getting my loads and keeping him booked…..using me as the relay……if needed until I can get a few more drivers.  My dad said get me an application……FUCKING A RIGHT!!
So, We were running some high dollar, NC runs —-and my guy in Cali—always a little slow, but one call—I had no issues ever getting paid.  His runs were like 3-7 stops.   1 a day, Export….. His loads came in spurts.  Sell like 5 or 6 containers then have to get a few more sold.  To this Day—I call My Partner and say hey I got shop set up—-That motherfucker would send me freight —
— I Give my container freight away, to probably the most sincere and mind blowing- knowledgeable VP’s that I loved working with and for when I ran containers.  I always wanted to have him and I partner on a Carrier…….just to see what we could do……..Fuck yes!! I told him that….Tried a few times to get him to buy a small carrier………..That is why he is a VP…… But hey that is another story for another time ——-
Anyway—-My dad running, plus what I was running and booking, and lining up from others in town to make sure we were making money——I am working four jobs and running a Semi, and making sure boxes were pulled –trailers everything right…….Let me let you know—–it was hard for me to finally get out of the truck……still to this day —–I love going and running a few weeks with my guys; take my kids out with me on the road; take others out and let them see how…….It can get complicated……but Good thing I can use a telephone still…….and gotta love those headsets at the Love’s and TA.  Them are some of the best.  Blue Parrot—Stands behind their warranty……I cannot recommend another brand…….
Technology plays a big part with this ability.  I love the fact dispatch is not limited to were you are anymore.  You really can, utilize the modernization to better Sets and standards that works for the individual.
So, I recruit drivers like anything else……..I do not sugar coat the shit.  I start off by asking them one question, How long have they been a driver?  I am not looking for drivers, I need operators.  Know the difference……..My ads are always clear.  Class ____ Operators……Wanted.
So those that know……….https://madmothertrucker.com/contact-us/
So I called this recruiter I found online, to help get some drivers and truck owners.  He calmly says this is what that will cost you.
$600 up front per hire.  Then after 3 months $600 and after another 3 months $600 after 1 yr $1200
Wow……what a revelation…….This is what you had the balls to tell me it would cost me to recruit one driver………..
So just out of Curiosity……I posed a few times as a recruiter……for myself……….just to see.
when i say my driver record is clean…..I mean that…..I take pride in that fact.  I think I had a few violations…….over the ol’ chugger……..but I know my shit.  I take pride in that fact.  Operator……..I can operate any wheeled vehicle……….Watch out Jason Statham……..Here is looking at you!
The offers rolled in………
It only took 3-4 then I clearly saw the direction…….What a revelation!!
Some of you should be ashamed………Others, well—- just say…..Can’t bullshit your way out of that…………….

Recruiting my Way-
