November 25, 2020 (Salt Lake City, Utah) – Pride Transport, a family-owned and operated Utah-based carrier, recently announced a significant driver pay raise across the board. Effective Dec. 1, 2020, driver pay increases 4 cents per mile with an additional 4 cents per mile for two years as part of its $10,000 sign-on bonus payout.
“This is an exciting announcement,” said Steve Schelin, director of recruiting for Pride Transport Inc. “What does that mean for a driver coming to Pride Transport? It means our base pay rate is 45 to 47.5 cents per mile and then we add so many extras.”
Schelin says Pride Transport offers a $10,000 sign on bonus paid out over two years. “That may sound like a long time but it’s paid at $100 per week for two years – that’s the equivalent of another 4 cent-per-mile raise during that time!” he says.
The company also has an unbeatable 401(k) program that matches contributions by a whopping 20 percent. On top of base pay, the company offers drivers pay for layover, breakdown, and stops, plus guaranteed detention. Drivers also enjoy paid holiday and vacation time.
Company drivers at Pride Transport enjoy affordable healthcare plans and paid orientation.
