Big Bonuses for PA Truck Drivers

The trucking company has a service bonus program that pays its drivers extra when they exhibit safe driving, loyalty, and dedication to the company. In this program, company drivers, independent contractors, and lease purchase operators are all eligible.

The service bonus is an annual reward that pays out an average of $1,700 to each driver. In addition, at least half of the PGT Trucking fleet qualified for the service bonus last year. There were also some truck drivers who earned a lot more than that. Truck drivers who had high retention rates made as much as $8,500 with 34 years of driving for the company.

According to Gregg Troian, PGT Trucking President, “We recognize the importance of expressing our appreciation to our tenured drivers. It truly does pay to stay, to work hard, and most importantly, to drive safe. We put these programs in place to make sure our drivers feel valued for their work, and we are certainly seeing the benefits of this investment, as our turnover rate has been reduced by 14% in the last year. We are a pay to stay company.”

Troian when on to say, “Our drivers are the foundation of our business, and because of their loyalty to PGT, we have been able to grow and develop programs that foster the family atmosphere we are known for. Drivers want to stay with a company where they feel appreciated, and it is very important for us to continue to invest in our drivers who work so hard in the communities we service.”

One of the drivers who earned the service bonus, Isaac Cannon, a truck driver in South Carolina, said, “I was drawn to PGT because of how the company operates and how they treat their drivers. I began as a Company Driver, went through the Lease Purchase program and am now an Independent Contractor. They stood behind me every step of the way. They care! And that is why I’ve been here for 15 years.”

Another driver, Frank Nathanson, a company driver in New Jersey, added, “PGT has great incentive programs – you make money! I have been in this industry for 17 years, and PGT sets itself apart through its focus on safety and community feel. I have found a company that works for me.”
