    McFarland Truck Lines, Inc. (USDOT 509519) based out of Austin, MN is looking for a few safe drivers to run Midwest Regional lanes. 100% reefer fleet, 2019-2022 Freightliner Cascadias with 72" sleeper, fridge mount, TV mount, microwave mount, and company-paid Sirius/XM subscription.

    You choose your home time. No minimum out, no maximum out. No mandatory time out for home time. Want 5 out and 2 at home? Got it. Want to stay out 2-3 months at a time? Got it. Going on vacation? Your truck will still be waiting for you with your stuff in it (no 4-day maximum home time rule). Want to run part-time and head out for a month then come home for a couple months? Go for it (although in this case, we would require the truck to be cleaned out... I'm sure you understand).

    Hiring all areas within a general triangle from St Cloud, MN to Dayton, OH to Wichita, KS, and anywhere within 50 miles outside of those lanes (we can also hire out of the DFW or ATL areas only with the understanding that you will be out 2-3 weeks at a time from those areas). 90% of our freight is in this triangle. We primarily haul food products, as it is recession-proof. Small to medium sized, family-owned company with 75 sleeper trucks, 40 local trucks, and 12 O/Os. Big enough to have the freight contracts that keep you moving, but small enough that your name is your "employee number."

    Honest pay. No tricks. No fluff. No side-talk. No jumping through hoops to qualify, either.
    All miles paid at a base of $0.53, plus mileage bonus.
    At 1800 miles/week, add $0.02/mile for all miles ($0.55 total)
    At 2400 miles/week, add another $0.04/mile for all miles ($0.59 total)

    Everything below is added to your base pay:
    Quarterly safety @ $0.01/mile
    Stop pay: $30 for any additional stops
    Detention: $20/hr starting 2 hours after appointment time (whether we get paid or not, its in your settlement)
    Clean DOT Inspection: $200 (any level)
    Monthly cell phone reimbursement covers first $25 of your bill
    401(k) with company match (50% match on first 5%) after 90 days
    Signing bonus $1,250 ($250 on first settlement, $250 quarterly for first year)
    Orientation pay $150
    Referral bonus $2,000 if you refer a new driver to us

    In 2020-2021, our drivers averaged $0.64/mile with bonuses and accessory pays factored in

    6 paid holidays
    4 days/year of sick pay (can be carried over)
    Bereavement pay - 3 days for immediate family
    Vacation pay - 1 week after first year, increasing to 3 weeks (paid on your employment anniversary)
    Company-paid Life and AD&D (after 90 days)
    M/D/V/L - Packages vary, shared premiums between employer and employee (after 90 days)
    HSA available (after 90 days)
    Rider and pet programs available

    Minimum Qualifications:
    Valid CDL-A in state of residence (no endorsements required, automatic-only restrictions accepted)
    9 months verifiable experience (including school time). Exceptions considered for the right candidate.
    23 years of age
    Knowledge of Federal Hours of Service Regulations
    Good Driving Record
    Good Communication Skills
    No Serious Violations in the Last 3 Years

    If you have any questions, you can call me at 507-440-6470, email me at james.grein@mcfgtl.com , or ask right here out in the open, and you'll get an honest answer out in the open.
    Dennixx Thanks this.

    Sounds like a decent gig if you live within the triangle. Pay could be higher but I think this is a great opportunity for new drivers.

    Pay could always be higher in every company, but personalized dispatch scheduling for every driver, home time on demand, an honest payroll department, and actually treating drivers with the respect they deserve keeps our turnover rate down in the mid-30% range, year after year. We currently have 7 vacant sleeper trucks in the entire fleet for 15 or so part-time drivers to share. Full-time drivers take priority for truck assignments, however, so I can bump the full-time fleet up by 2-3 more drivers right now while leaving 4-5 trucks for backups, part-timers, etc.
