Len Dubois Trucking is always on the lookout for great new drivers to join our fleet. We’ve just recently expanded our operations and have a great new facility with more room for more trucks. Now we’re on the lookout for great company drivers and owner operators to expand our team. The first step in this is to meet with our driver recruiter, John.
Len Dubois Trucking believes that in order to provide a good, quality company to work for a foundation of trust and understanding must be established right from the beginning. This is why our recruiter doesn’t make “big promises that can’t be kept. His sole purpose when recruiting is to be open and honest about the work, lanes, miles, opportunities and company values. Our Driver Recruiter is also our Driver Safety and Compliance Manager. As our Safety Manager, he is someone you will work with on a regular basis and not a recruiter who you never see after you sign on with a company.
John has been in the trucking industry for over 25 years. He knows what it’s like to be an over the road driver, that’s where he got his start in the industry. After 9 years of driving, John moved into dispatch allowing him to participate in trip planning and dispatching trucks. This unique combination, as well as his management degree in transportation, has given John the skills he needs not only to deliver on Driver Services and Compliance but also to serve as our recruiter.
The Honest Truth About Working with Len Dubois Trucking
Len Dubois Trucking has been built with a family-friendly, driver first culture that has helped us develop long-lasting relationships with our driving fleet. Turnover is a big part of the trucking industry and one thing that both drivers and companies like to avoid. We know that it is not easy to work for companies that don’t take you into account, and that has been the foundation of our company. Putting the driver first, as much as possible, helps keep our fleet happy, rolling down the road, and earning a great living. Last year, we celebrated with eleven drivers who have driven one million miles with us and we look forward to adding some names to the list this year.
Here are some more honest truths about working with our team.
#1 You will be able to maintain a healthy home-work balance
At Len Dubois Trucking we believe in and support a healthy work/home balance for all of our drivers. Who determines what that balance is? Well, for the most part, it’s the driver. We do expect our drivers to run 10,000 miles per month which still allows for ample home time every 7 to 10 days depending on the load you have been assigned. If there is something coming up in your life that you don’t want to miss all you have to do is book the time off. We do our best to accommodate your needed time off by altering your run schedule accordingly. Don’t believe us?

#2 You’ll Earn a Great Living
Whether you are a company driver or an owner-operator, you will earn a great living as part of our team. We don’t offer traditional bonus programs (A.K.A. The Claw Backs). Instead, we pay our drivers for the work that they do. For company drivers, this means getting paid per mile, per drop, per pick, per border crossing and more, we’ve even initiated a one-cent premium for all U.S. miles to try to lessen the burden of the exchange rate and Our mileage rewards program pays drivers an additional $0.01 to $0.03 per mile simply for driving 10,000 miles or more per month. As we expect our drivers to take 10,000 miles per month, this reward is paid out just for doing your job. For Owner Operators, this means the ability to choose a percentage or per-mile contract, paid tolls and scales, option for deductible buy down, and access to our company fleet cards for discounts on fuel.
#3 Regular Lanes with Regular Inbound and Outbound Freight
While Len Dubois Trucking does not have dedicated lanes, we do have regular lanes with regular clients for both outbound and inbound freight. The variety of freight we carry delivers all over the U.S. and from coast to coast in Canada. We work with our drivers and take into consideration the lanes they prefer and the ones they’d rather do without. We can’t promise that you’ll never go to places you’d rather not, but we can promise that we’ll keep it to a minimum and, most importantly, we’ll keep you moving. After all, if you’re not moving you’re not making money. 75% of our miles are U.S. miles. We also made another big change this and now provide our drivers with More One Pick, One Drop, Full Trailer Load Miles.
Len Dubois Trucking is only as good as it’s people. The relationships that we have with our clients, our drivers and our Owner Operators allow us to continue to grow, prosper and ensure that our drivers earn well above the industry average on a consistent basis. We don’t just hire drivers, we invest in people.
If you are dedicated to safety and have a strong work ethic, we would like to hear from you. You can contact John today to see if you are the driver we are looking for.
