Drug Test processing and orientation, are wrapped into one package.
Both come with a cost to you but most all of this can be refunded
AFTER you have successfully passed your 90 day probation period.
What is an orientation? We have recruiting coordinate your orientation. At orientation, we have you fill out your D.O.T. application, compile important information to coordinate your payroll direct deposits, prepare for background checks and other legal formalities and get you up to speed with our methods and procedures. It's a combination of preparation, training and how things are done. You'll learn how to respond to situations, role playing, open discussion on the overall job, meet staff, dispatchers, the driver liaison and payroll personnel. All of
this takes time and costs us money.
** Drug Test "processing" as well as the actual "drug test", the
administrative cost of your orientation and your training. You are
eligible to receive $150.00 back on your third payroll check (payday
is every other week). The difference of the $45.00, you can write off
on your taxes but this will not be returned to you (the drug test
facility will not refund this cost).
PAYING THE $195.00: You'll need to send a CASHIERS CHECK to us in advance of your orientation asap. The sooner you have GPS, a 2 way and your cashiers check is submitted, the sooner we can start you. DO NOT perform these efforts unless you know you can pass a drug test. Contact recruiting to find out where to submit the cashiers check.
Call 260.483.1800 x 105. Cashiers checks are guaranteed funds, if you
send in a personal check it will need to clear the bank and this takes
7-10 business - days and only delays things. Same for a money order.
Cashiers checks are good, the moment we receive them with no strings
PAYROLL: As indicated above, payroll is every other Friday. You may
elect for payroll advances. Payroll is direct deposited right into
your checking or savings account. If you have a debit card, it can be
inserted there. The choices are yours.
ADVANCES: You have an option of 40% advances (with a fee) or 16% fuel advances (16% of load) as often as daily if you need assistance in keeping the unit running WITH NO FEE. We will help on this issue.
Advances cannot begin until after you have completed your 10th load.
It takes us a few days of processing to complete the process of adding
you to our payroll and getting your payroll all set up. This is the
reason for this delay.
ADVANCES: There is a fee for the 40% advances by the factoring company and these are passed on to you. If you elect to get advances of the 16%, we the carrier will take this out of our cash flow to help you
keep your unit running if start up funds are slim.
DRIVER LIAISON: Our Liaison will assist you with any issues or
problems you may ever encounter, personally or involving your business
operation. He is the "go between" for you with any issues you may
have. This is a resource that is very beneficial to you.
