Prime Inc., a leading international refrigerated, flatbed and liquid bulk truckload carrier headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, has recognized Jeffery Bender, of Inverness, Florida, as a top recruiter for the company.
Bender, a professional driver for more than 20 years, joined Prime in May 2000 as an independent contractor. He has recruited 10 drivers for the company since the first of the year and has thus far earned $19,000 for his efforts. Bender received $1,000 for each recruit, for a total of $10,000, and now qualifies for 13 weeks of free truck payments, valued at $9,000.
As a top recruiter, Bender has brought a number of experienced teams to Prime. "He presents a good image," says Don Lacy, Director of Safety and Recruiting. "He's doing well, so he can sell that to other people." Ninety percent of Prime's applicants are through referrals.
Bender is expected to recruit another 10 drivers by the end of the year and will then receive a special bonus. Lacy says, "He is well on his way to qualifying for the use of a truck for one year."
