Sisbro Inc is still looking for more drivers. They believe that their approach and long-term commitment to attracting and retaining drivers, sets them apart from other trucking companies.
According to Sisbro Inc., they have an old-fashioned, mid-west value system that many companies no longer follow, since they are a mid-west based regional carrier. Tho them family is important. This is the reason why they let their drivers get home on the weekend. Sisbro is also flexible with regards to schedule. If the traditional weekend of Saturday and Sunday conflicts with their driver's own personal time, and he/she prefers days off during the work week for her/his "weekend", at Sisbro it won't be an issue, they have the flexibility to meet that need.
Sisbro Inc. also covers for there employees' health needs. Their insurance plan premiums are funded 100% by the company regardless if the drivers are single or have dependents.
The mileage and hourly pay they offer provides their drivers the opportunity to make a great living in the trucking business. It is based on Rand McNally book miles. The rate of pay is based on experience. The hourly pay applies to loading and unloading.
Sisbro Inc.'s vacation and holiday pay allows them to spend time at home; doing the things their drivers desire and not miss a paycheck. Holiday is paid after thirty days. The amount is a prorated average of the total days the driver has worked. The driver is eligible for one week of vacation after the first year and two weeks after the second year. The amount is a prorated average of their earnings for the entire year.
Their assigned fleet manger will keep them busy year round. An open door policy to management will give them the opportunity to discuss any problems or concerns they may have at any time. Drivers have access to the terminal manager who will personally work through any situation that a driver may have. The retention of their drivers is a top priority and it is not something they take lightly.
Sisbro Inc.'s mission is to deliver to their customers a level of service that consistently exceeds their clients' expectations. They have adopted the motto, "Where the Customer Comes First." and it will remain foremost in their daily service and activities.
