“Young man…” Jim Noe (rhymes with boy) starts, “what d’ya say?” Age and maturity really have no bearing on Jim’s use of “young man” as he’s been heard saying it to persons much younger as well as many years his senior. He may say, “Young man… where are you headed?” or “Young man… how’s your little boy doing?” It’s just his friendly way of engaging the driver on the other end of the line or the co-worker across the office.
Last week, we introduced a new weekly minimum guarantee of $1,000 giving drivers predictability when they have an otherwise down week. $1,000 is just the beginning of a driver’s earning potential with Nussbaum. And now, we’re making it even better.
When Brendon Nussbaum joined the operations team in 2012, he needed very little introduction. He practically grew up with the company. There’s the obvious last name thing, but even from the time he was a young teenager, Brendon could be found cleaning up trucks, sweeping the shop, or as he put it, “making more trouble than doing good!” However, his journey to Operations is not so simply told.
NEW MINIMUM ADDS PREDICTABILITY FOR OTR TRUCK DRIVERS
Good truck drivers are highly valued here at Nussbaum. With growing demand from shippers, our business is bustling. And when our business does well, we make it a priority to share our success with our people.
n the transportation industry, It’s easy to prioritize our day-to-day operations and goal of making deliveries on time. That is what we do after all, and it’s certainly a large part of what our customers pay us to do. But it doesn’t stop there.
