Atlas is launching a new Shuttle Fleet, which will create more than 100 new jobs by June 2012. New hires can anticipate a $5,000 sign on bonus, as well as help with the purchase of a new tractor with their new lease-to-purchase program. Atlas is working with Freightliners of Evansville and other 3rd party partners to offer affordable lease-to-purchase programs, with little to no down-payment.
Shuttle Fleet offers over-the-road and regional jobs, allowing for flexible home time. Shuttle Fleet’s drivers are responsible for drop and hook trailers delivery service and are paid by the mile.
According to a press release, drivers in the fleet earn an average of $1.52 per mile, which includes fuel surcharge and payments on loaded and empty miles. Drivers in the Shuttle Fleet will be offered between 2,100 and 2,500 miles per week.
Atlas encourages owner operators, teams and new CDL graduates to apply. Consideration will also be given to those currently in drive school.
In addition to the sign-on bonus and generous pay, Atlas also offers its drivers a discounted fuel program, weekly pay, free PrePass, free truck washes, optional life, medical and dental insurance, a cell allowance and more.
