You can learn more from our asked questions

1) Why would a truck driver come to me to get him/her place with a company? Meaning, can’t they just go to a company themselves and apply?

Answer: This what we teach in the course. Drivers cannot go directly to a company or recruiter and expect to get the best options. The company or recruiter has to say they are the best or they would not stay or be in business long. The driver understands, and we teach that being a part of our network that is based on real true drivers in the seat and their feedback of jobs is in a non-biased approach.

When you join our Mastery Course, you will be a part of my driver network as well. The Drive United Group has helped more than 1.5 mil drivers, and we give them incentives to provide us with true feedback on the truck driving jobs in the USA.

2) Do I need a website, contracts, proposals, etc.? I can get a logo on Fiverr or Upwork as I have used both services in the past.

Answer: You will not need a website, contract, or proposals. When you activate my team to build your funnel, this will serve as a website designed to funnel a candidate through the process to get on your calendar.

You will need a logo and a short video of the job/jobs you plan to hire for. I show you how to set this up, and you can have someone on Fiverr to them for under $100 in most cases. We have a network of those contacts to use.

3) Do I need a payment processor? I believe you said you would be paying me directly, but I just wanted to make sure.

Answer: We pay agents by PayPal in most cases until they hit the average of 10 hires per month, and then we can make a direct deposit.

4) Do I need to set up an LLC / Corporation or do most people who come into this program just run everything under their own name and social security?

Answer: I would set one up and then apply for an S-corp form, but that is a question for your attorney in the course. We have other resources with Legal Zoom if you do not have an attorney in our course members area as well.

As you know, the write-offs alone you can do will benefit you when setting up the LLC.

5) Once a driver is placed with a company, do I get paid on that driver as a 1-time commission, or do you get paid some sort of residual every month as long as the driver stays with that company?

Answer: We set our clients up to be a one-time payment in most cases. We do not want to play the odds of getting paid the longer they stay. The industry is 98% turn-over, and a driver remains 2-3 months with a company on average. So, we deliver the qualified candidate and application, they pass the drug test, driving test, and physical to get their truck to push the gas pedal for the first time, and we get paid. They will pay within 7-10 days in most cases, and we pay instantly.

6) Does a driver need to have their own big rig truck, or they just need to be a licensed driver, and the company provides the truck?

Answer: both, but we focus on putting a driver into the company truck in most cases as it is a much easier process.

7) If I move forward with your program, besides the $10k fee for the program, are there any other hidden expenses that I need to know about? Do I need to pay for any automation software, etc., such as a CRM? I would like to have a breakdown of everything so I know what I am looking at going all into your program.

Answer: if you are scaling your agency, then you might decide to acquire software expenses down the road, but initially, we start every out with free platforms like google drive, docs, spreadsheets, emails, and skype. I have people that have run more than 50 man agencies off of free platforms.

I will help you with different options as you start scaling.

8) After I complete the course and get started trying to get my first driver, this is done through Facebook and Google Ads. How much money do I need for ad spend in my first month to acquire my first driver?

Answer: I have a special deal that the president of Jobs In Trucks does for my agents after completing the course. You can have full access to a massive database of drivers looking for jobs for $150 per month. If you have the capital to build a better marketing plan, you can use my agency to build out your funnels and connect all the pieces for no cost on the build, but it takes $297 per month to stay active in our team managing your ad accounts. We work primarily in FB ads, and on average, FB cost for a lead runs around $22, but the way we do it, it is usually under $5 per lead. So, on budget, after we test for a few days to see what cost average, you will know how much you need to spend to get the number of drivers you want. Example: $3 lead, and you want ten per day to pay $30 per day to get those leads.

9) Approximately how many drivers does the average person close from their first ad spend in their first month?

Answer: This all depends on what you decide to put the focus on. I will help you know what the hottest jobs will allow you to get paid the quickest. This is ongoing strategy updates.

10) How much money do I need to spend every month on ad spend? On the low end, I make a $1200 commission. I am assuming this $1200; I need to take a certain percentage and put it back into advertising; otherwise, I can’t get more drivers.

Answer: After a series of testing, we usually find that $20 per day is a great place to get, and then as you scale, you can scale that. Initially, we test a few ads at $3 per day until they tell us what we need to know.

On your commission, The average commission for you is $1200. I will show you a list of jobs for the commission I get, and then it shows you what you get. So, you get 70% of the commission I get, and when you hit 15 hires per month, it graduates to a 75% payout, and eventually, you can reach 80% of the original commission.

If using my client base when hiring, we stay at 80% because I have a support staff dedicated and hired for you. They are available 8-5 CST during corporate client hours.

11) Also, when did you start offering your course? Is it brand new, or have you had people purchase this course over the years? Has anyone failed at making any money from your course?

Answer: I have been training people 22 years from being one of the original people who build JB Hunt’s internal recruiting group. I then created my firm in which is the biggest in the US for brokering placements. The course you will get is the 3.0 version as I have put all my courses into one and added the ability to learn how to market like I do with my agency and in my clients in the trucking world.

12) Is it fairly easy or simple to get drivers for this type of business?

Answer: It’s not a get-rich overnight kind of business. It takes work and dedication. There is an art to how to do this, and if you follow my system, this can be very simple. The examples and testimonials I have are real true numbers, people, and stories. All walks have jumped in and been successful. Not to mention me being right there with you along the way adds a lot of value.

13) Is this business the same as being a Freight Broker?

Answer: No, freight brokering is negotiating a rate to be paid to get a load of goods from point A to B. This requires endless nights of hoping that driver or company you set up to do this shows. They don’t; you lose money.

We Broker the driver’s full-time placement to get in the truck’s seat for the trucking company. This is the most powerful part of the transportation business. They could have the best contracts to haul for and a thousand trucks, but without the driver, they have nothing. This is why we are rewarded very well.

The average trucking company with a truck sitting in the yard without a driver is losing $900-$3500 per day in revenue.

14) Can you confirm that once a driver signs up, my job is done, and your team takes care of the rest? Or is there more to it?

Answer: once a driver shows up to the orientation and passes the drug, physical, and driving test to get into their truck and hit the gas pedal, you get paid. We have nothing more to do with how the job goes after.

15) Do you have a breakdown of everything that I will get if I come into your program? Meaning, you will provide the exact funnels that are proven and working “today,” provide me with the VAs and the sales closers, etc. No stone left unturned. Completely turn-key. I don’t want to be guessing on how to do something and trying to figure things out.

Answer: Yes, I will show you how I have scaled the largest agency in the US. Every step, and if you come up with more, I will get it to you at no other cost.

Once you want VA’s, I will connect you with that resource, and I will have my team train them for you, so you do not have to mess with that part either.

16) How do I invoice? 

Answer: All agents are to send their invoices to the company invoicing@simba7.com

17) How do I find out what the commissions are? 

Answer: You will go to the Simba 7 Strategies members area < Document and Resources module < Agent Commissions

18) What equipment do you recommend for my office?

Answer: This will depend on what kind of setup you are planning on working with. I usually have contractors that have their computers, and we set them up with a phone system on their computer. As you scale to a bigger group and decide to take on employees rather than contractors, we will then work on supplying everything. 

19) At $150/month, what type of leads (quality, warm, etc.) do I get, and how many? 

Answer: This is a database of drivers looking, and it is huge. You will have to speak with the president of Jobs In Trucks about the details. She takes care of anyone that is a part of our mastery course. 

20) Do you pay for a VA to take your phone calls, or do you have them forwarded to your cell phone, or do you have a separate cell phone for business? 

Answer: I have resources that I can introduce you to that will allow you to have quality VA’s that can do anything needed with data entry, applications, phone screening, etc. My team will show them the ropes, so you do not have to worry about that part.

21) I assume a vanity phone # would be more “eye-catching/professional”? 

Answer: Assume you have a list of VA’s and their costs? We recommend Dialpad to start with. We can work with VA’s at around 1500-1600 per month full-time. We can get them part-time as well. 

22) Do bandit signs attract callers, especially around truck stops? 

Answer: The only way to go with this is digital. That is what will bring them in and save you time. 

1. When will I receive my account info for market growth after I signed up?
-When you sign up for Marketing Growth make sure to notify the support team. The normal status of marketing is usually when someone activates the team working on things, and it could take a week to get a response so you need to hit support to fast track that. We are not gonna put you with the same pool of client base, we are building out funnels and ads and that is a 3-week process to do so.

2. After completing the course, do I need to create a business name and tax id with my state?
-I would recommend that, Yes because especially now if you’re working at home and/or virtual it’s a lot of things that you can do for having that. If you haven’t done this yet you should definitely do. Testimonial of the overview of the course at the end we asked that. It’s to give me an understanding of what you’ve taken from it if you like the coaching team and the process so far.

3. How do I go about learning how to scale my business?
-Learning how to scale a business will ultimately fail if you don’t first start with your “why” of going into business in the first place. Knowing your purpose and successfully communicating that to your team is the way to make them raving fans of your company and drive growth in an organic manner.

4. A candidate just completed his Class A training again but already had his Class A from 2005-2008 and has been driving, hauling hazmat, and doubles endorsements. Is he eligible to drive?
If they just did it they should have a refresher course. You’ll have to message support and see which one they should take in. I think US Express has a limited spot on this. There are some things that heartland had in the past I don’t know if it is still active right now because covid shut down our student side.

5. $10,150 payout in the first 2.5 weeks of being active with recruiting.

1. How far removed from the completion of an SAP program? (Owen)
– 5 years out and at least one year of testing in that. So really about 6 years.

2. We have 1 pending prospect with a driver who is a good fit with heartland express. What is their application process? (Michael)
– See those locations; we must make sure we follow those directions with HL and USX applications when it comes to application completion.

3. How can we determine how we can access more success with Simba 7?
I spent the past few days looking at my process and still want to learn more. (Lee)

4. Do I need a website? The place where the candidates are going to be directed would be it? (Jeff)
– You’re not going to need a website because we will design a funnel that will serve as your website if you’re in the program. So you need to buy a domain, and from that domain inside the course, it talks about how to the point that domain I would buy out that GoDaddy if you haven’t already got it, and it shows you step by step how to the point that to click funnels once you that we’ll have it.

5. What is the process on your end to get new sub-agents enrolled so they can start asap?
-We need to start an email thread with Top tier agent and their Sub-agent. Support will get them the order form and SLMC general agreement sent out.

1. If a candidate has 10 years over of experience driving the gooseneck would he qualify for a CDL Class A experience?

5. How do I assess and how do I get it started so I can use the leads to further my business regarding leads generation strategy?

1. What information should I use to qualify a driver for different tiers 1 to 4 to identify where to apply and get them the best tier?
2. If there is a person that will help me with recruiting can the call the driver to JBH to get scheduled?
3. What name should we give in when they are calling on my behalf as they are helping me for my recruitment?
4. To whom should we send the names of the candidate so they can get to the portals?
5. How to handle a JBH recruiter who is not nice to applicants?

1. How do we access the agent board to be able to put all the information that we need to put into it?
Ans: It’s not an agent board outside of your google spreadsheet that we created initially. Unless you showed up on the CRM while some of you we always still do the google spreadsheet because that is the way we operate internally and then you can upload it into your CRM/CSV File. As far as your board things like that, that is what support is communicating with the company from different boards you’re getting updates to them daily all through the day with the status of your driver.We are working now after this new year where you can see your own portal and your own driver. This is the initial deal discussed in the beginning where you will see every activity, processing deal and verification so and so.

2. How do I create a driver portal for JBH to add my recruiters in when I get scheduling on the phone?
Ans: The recruiters are all added through me and the executive rep based on the volume. As long as we have your reps you may see an invite and invite you to send one the status and that. They of course will only see the activity when they send him down.

3. Does protection apply if the candidate doesn’t have a schedule for orientation because of background check?
Ans: No, because the guy has been scheduled with an application and recruiter that sends it down under the same protection for you. Just because they don’t have an orientation yet and need the background check. If it’s JBH they do have actually a background set, it will be that way even though if the background is going on every other company will wait to do an orientation set. I don’t know why but it’s smarter if you just set an orientation to speed everybody up. That will be protection within 48hrs if the candidate comes back and it’s there remember we got the 48hr window there. So they have to be declined or rejected, if they are rejected you don’t probably get them unless you can help the driver do not communicate with JBH.

4. Are there any jobs for fresh trucking school graduates that pass their test?
Ans: There’s a lot of people that graduate and it’s going to be something that you want to get into but you know these commissions are $250 to $500 maybe they don’t need help a lot of times on that so if we have a company open that up you’re not getting paid very well to do so. However we have talked to a few that potentially could be offering that after this New year we’ll see how it goes you know sometimes you can just throw them over there and hope that they stick because there’s a process that goes through it takes quite a bit of time to even get paid on it they’ve got to go over and go through the trailer and then you know do the whole thing and that trainer thing might be three months before they let them drive and consider them hired. It’s just different with every company and it’s a long process to get a very small commission.
5. What does decline timing mean and what does CDP pending mean?
Ans: CDP pending mean is what the divisions called internally for JBH Hunt. They’re just saying that it’s just does decline timing meanI’ve not heard this term so you know they maybe creating some news ones here. If the candidates there may be a window of time here they’re giving the agent this is what they used to do and they may be bringing this back that they say hey we’re not going to decline this driver yet but we’re giving you this declining timing and you’re set a timer here we’re going to cut him off and so it gives them a little bit more protection it give them a heads up saying hey go get this driver back if you can get them otherwise you now pretty soon it’s going to be declined.
6. Can we send an email directly to the client if they are requesting for the copy of SAP?
Ans: No, that’s why we have support there’s no direct communication with any internal agents, schedulers or anybody even if they reach out to you, you send it over because that means they don’t know the rules or they’re breaking the rules because that;s internal rule if I had a thousand agents reach out to my client daily we would have chaotic massive chaotic problems it should be done through the support to direct contacts.

1. If a candidate’s identity was stolen by a different company and still interested in the job and was offered for a protection does it mean that JBH is still interested with the candidate?

(JEFF)

Does the JBH Entry-level have student positions in more than one slot?
Ans: Just don’t look at the slot just go for it. They are going to work on these things, they’re gonna take people in this is their new project. They may be talking about 1 or 2 slots but I will hammered down on it and just try to put in him.

Why does the Apprenticeship Program in the portal give us a hard time checking the available slot?
Ans: It’s not always gonna be up to date right away. The portals have many moving parts so when we go to orientation they try to have an update on what positions are left or what positions they have so it’s a big moving machine, there is a lot moving parts and there is a lot things back in there that could go wrong but they gonna work on this things eventually just bringing them to support team so they can help you.

Does the Apprenticeship program still have an age limit for every candidate?
Ans: Most of the time your minimums are gonna be 21 that should probably gonna change with interstate stuff and student things.

2. Why would you go to someone that is biased to their company and cannot tell you if their competitor is better?

          Our whole thing is that we ask the driver why they will apply to a biased company. We are educating our drivers on what they need to know by not stating any thing that is not good with competitor.

3. How do I scale more agents? Do I use the same commission structure you have when hiring virtual agents? I know?

          I recommend everybody to use the same deal. I would show what that is and be transparent. We have multiple hundred leads and still find out to be a virtual agent. Being realistic to people on what they are getting and how they are being managed.

4. Would it be possible to stay on the phone with the candidate and JB until they finish the entire application instead of us getting off the line? (Ayleen)

          That is negative. That is something that can not be done. There are a lot of confidential information that you should not be hearing. We need to know

5. Is there a company that will accept this candidate with this experience Trucker: No tickets, no accidents, 20 plus years But – been off the road for three years Has CDLA?

          Yes, JBH is the only one who accepts with no experience or at least 6 months experience.  

  1.       If a candidate committed a felony over 10 years ago but just got out of prison is he eligible for a JBH position? (Jeff)

          As per Carrier Guidelines, No felonies in the last 10years, if minor felony they will review.

  1.       What does Created / Dynamics Portal mean? (Jeff)

          Means the app is created but not yet processed by the handler.

  1.       How does a candidate qualify for a regular position? What are the requirements that JBH checks?
  2.       What is the JBT pet policy on an account that says they can have pets? (Aaron)
  3.       Would there be an exception if a candidate for an OTR team position but is 32 miles over radius limit?

6.       Is there a way that we can work around a driver previously submitted for a different position that he didn’t want to move forward with?

  1.       What is the minimum guide for JBH needing to be employed in the US for a minimum of 6 months

 –  As far as I know, as long as they have a qualifiable school with JBH specific locations they’ll let them get into a position as long as they’ve graduated from a CDO school here in the states. Unless they are requiring them to have a green card.

  1.       What could be the reason why a candidate would decline the position and wants to start at a later date?

 – First thing is that he is not interested in going to work yet or second, he got into another position and doesn’t want to burn the bridge and he is not yet ready and wants to try another one first. One big thing is that he’s not sold to you.

  1.       How do I get more candidates on the phone when calling the database?

–  If you’re not using the five-call rule I will do it right away. If you don’t know the five call rules then you haven’t gone through the course and that’s the reason it was designed that way. Call five times a 5 before leaving a voicemail. 

  1.       Is there a source for pre qualified leads that we could use or check?

–  There are thousands of services out there that want sold truck drivers out there  and leads because I know there’s money in it. There’re pre-screeners that would pay a mass of leads and there’s no guarantee. You need to get a Virtual assistant that could do pre-screening for you.

  1.       Are there other conditions that need to be met? Carrier guidelines state that JB will hire someone after completing the SAP program.

– The SAP program has to be 5 years. Outside of 5 It takes a year, it has a 6 year total and they have to complete the program and should fail the drug test and they will not take them back.


  1.   How do I get these ads going so I can start getting drivers calling me? (Andre)

    If you’re getting about the mastery course it could be found on facebook or on youtube and also through our funnel page. If you have been on the page this is the model where you can do or check your ads. You can pop up a live video on facebook about your contents.

  1.       How can we control the ORT date if the candidate was called down? Example Show bonus was dated 02/28/2022 and the candidate was hired on 03/03/2022. (Lee)

  It counts where it counts. It will depend on the date they are hired and the date they ended on the bonus that was offered. There’s nothing we can do about it if when and how he bonus was already gone or canceled.

  1.       Is there any way we can vax better on the site? A lot of people that are from the website are saying they never requested to be contacted, they have retired, or don’t even have a cdl and are desperate for any job. (Francis)
  •  Every person you get a lead from has physically seen the offer, clicked the button and submitted their info. There’s a learn more form from the page that they could fill up and set up a schedule. They could prescreen themselves using the form that could be found from the site.


  1.   How should we deal with JBH reps that are rude with our submitted drivers?
  •       Report the details to support. Give in all the details on what happened so we could report it to JBH.
  1. Can we send an email directly to the client if they are requesting for the copy of SAP?

 –       No, you can not directly email them about SAP. You can ask for support to assist you regarding the SAP program.

1. What can we do to help a candidate with six months of experience with Schneider but was told by the specialist that he doesn’t have enough experience? They are saying he has less than three months. ( Jeff )

          This may have to do with the training process they have been through and if he’s in the truck with the trainer they will not count that experience because he was sitting there being trained and not driving. Is he doing and can be documented under his belt a thousand miles a week at minimum if not sometimes with the trainer he’s not eligible.

2. Does the JBH have a clearinghouse? ( Jeff )

          I’m not sure about JBH having a clearing house, something I’ve never heard of that is more of a third party. It’s more of 10th street, it’s a super expensive app process that our client base uses.

3. How can we prevent having two active applications for a candidate? the system allowed us to create one when it should have stopped the process at the start. (Prince)

          For the most part still in any case they are pulling by a phone number and it was different or email is different. We’re going to go fight for it because they change for it. We have to go research about what happened on the application process using the recording and anything else.

4. Where is the JB hunt job board discussed under the best practices? (Mike)

          JB hunt job board best practices could be found in the funnels in job board videos. The best way to search JB hunt is using zip code. You can see the availability using zip code. You can see it by radius, locals and dedicated.

5. How do I get these ads going so I can start getting drivers calling me? ( Andre)

          We are getting close and we have a lot of people who would like to have active ads. For the meantime you can use your database while you are building your strategy in build and trucks.

  1. If a position requires a class C license and a driver doesn’t have that but has his class A permit would that be acceptable to JB? (JEFF)


  • Class C is just a standard license. I don’t think he has the availability to get a Class A license if he did not have a Class C license. Class C license is used for driving a car.


  1. Would it be best for a candidate to keep checking with JBH to make sure everything is progressing or what is the best way to stop on top of this? Because I have a candidate, The original specialist had put in the wrong information as to his driving experience and apparently that messed everything up. He is currently working with them to get the required documents to the. (JEFF)


  • The only way is to get the right information or they get back and start all over again. You should never have a call back to get a deal. Help them google information if you have to and that’s where the scheduler helps them get the information they need. You can message support to follow up about your candidate. Just constantly follow up with them to know what is happening.


  1. What could be the reason why we should choose JB hunt entry level positions? 


  • Well on the agent side they are not paying less $500. As soon as they pop out after graduation they will have a high pay rise. The more successful they are, it will gradually grow in accepting more agents in those areas. Find those areas and find those schools. 


  1. Does protection apply if the candidate doesn’t have a schedule for orientation because of background check?


  • It has to have a specific date so the protection will apply. I’ve never seen them having a schedule and having a background check. But if they already have a schedule it is protected.


  1. Does JBH take a candidate that passed and certified the clearing house program since the candidate had it 2 years ago?


  • No, that has to be six years. The thing about that is that it has to be six years so heartland will take them.
  1. How can we get clarification for the following job position? The Job Description is: Burlington Stores San Bernardino, CA 33+ with the Job Position number: 19795. Home Base is San Bernardino which is 65 miles away from his home. How can we know where the home base is?


  • We can hit the support for the specific question. If you go to a local account it can be easily identified if it is going to be covered or not. 


  1. To whom should we send the names of the candidate so they can get to the portals?


  • You can fill up the form and call the number indicated to it and make a follow up to our support about the status of the driver and make sure that you keep on following up about it.


  1. How do I create a driver portal for JBH to add my recruiters in when I get scheduling on the phone?


  • If you’re talking about JBH you have to fill up a form and submit it to the portal and call the number on it and send the details to support to have a communication with the client for the follow up status for the candidate. It is just really the support that could follow up about their status.


  1. Can we hire a class B or C driver if the position from JBH specifies the qualifying license type?


  • Yes, we can the class B and the class C is the traditional license. We can hire Class C and Class B candidate license but they cannot drive trucks having class B license. They have to have someone on helping them. Class C is the most important one.

  1. How do we fix the processing speed of their application so that it will not affect any expectations of the driver?


  • Processing speed is 100% that we have the JB Hunt speed. When it comes to processing they are checking background and other. Communicating with the driver daily and with support we prompt the JBH about processing our candidates to be on top. 


  1. JB Hunt has made some major changes on the job board in the past 24 hours.  Example is that the experience requirement for a major portion of the Intermodal Division has been changed to 12 months.  Any feedback from them why such a drastic change and why they did not move to a 6 months requirement instead of 12?.  Really shut the door on a lot of drivers for Intermodal. (LEE)


  1. Is it a normal practice for a JBH Onboarding Specialist (they are not called schedulers any more) to eliminate elements of a position listed on a job when calling down a driver, such as not being accurate on the pay scale?  Doing so can turn off a driver and we lose him (LEE)


  1. Why would an Onboarding Specialist make an inaccurate disposition statement on the Portal for a driver, which would not be the correct reason for disposition?  Example, Driver declined a job after learning the pay was not as presented and he did not hang up on the Onboarding Specialist.  He says he did not lose contact but did decline due to pay information.  The Onboarding Specialist claimed she lost contact with him and dispositioned for lost contact.  Not true. (LEE)


  1. Can we discuss with the candidate How much of the job description should we go into?
  • Value script you go in a company transition. If you do this you have to hit the high point. You have to talk about endorsements, presentation. You work on this guy closely and provide them the details.
  1. How do we access the agent board to be able to put all the information that we need to put into it?
  • You have to have a portal and ask assistance from the support team to give you your credentials/login and passwords.
  1. If there are multiple zip codes for the position offered, Do I need to go through each of the positions? 
  • No, if you’re in the zip code and your drivers there you don’t have to market each position. If they are in a different zip code you have to be careful and check details about it.


  1. Can we have access to seeing what the candidates see on the video they watch so we can help them in some situation before they go to orientation?
  • The only way you can do that is you can ask the driver if they can send the video to you for you to be able to see or view it. Clients will never send videos to agents.


  1. Can a candidate be eligible for reapplication if he/she was declined for unproductive contact and declined because of a pending schedule?
  • Absolutely yes, as long as it is under your protection you can still resubmit the candidate after they decline. But if they are already in a different protection you can not resubmit it.


  1. What is the Pay Rate for ORT? What is the approximate Time Frame for ORT? (JOHN)
  • The details on the position will vary based on what OTR position it is. It will be $25 per hour for 10 hours a day for all training.


  1. There seems to be a major shakeup taking place, at least west of the Mississippi, for the JBH job boards. A large number of west coast and Southwest area jobs that were on the board yesterday requiring a large number of drivers have disappeared as of this morning.  Josh do you have any information about what is happening with JBH?(LEE)
  • Guaranteed that the position they do fill up fast. That’s why we should work with a candidate close. You have to put them in the roaster very fast because it is being filled really fast. They want to fill them quickly because it is a hot job. 


  1. Can we email candidates as opposed to cold calling? IE the position information etc.


  • I would be very careful in doing that. The way that you deliver it is the way you can inspire them. If you can educate them in the process on what we do here. When it comes to values on our side, entertainment, education and execution. When you email you are losing that strategy because they are not reading the whole thing.


  1. What information should I use to qualify a driver for different tiers 1 to 4 to identify where to apply and get them the best tier?


  • It’s all under JBH for Tier level. I recommend never worrying about tier level. If you are selling the hardest job you can have the best tier level with the highest paying position. If you go straight to the local area they might not be interested in it. If you deliver it right you can lock them down with a schedule.


  1. How many pickups and deliveries per day/per week can a driver have? Are their trucks automatic?


  • It depends on what the job is. How you deliver the job word by word. You have to cover all the details and explain to them what position they have and nothing to worry about the pay as long as they are doing their job correctly they’ll get paid. Before you deliver them to the scheduler make sure that they have the seniority and the application. You have to protect yourself before you give them to the scheduler.


  1. Are there any new load bonus fr the driver for a heartland job?


  • Heartland is offering a load bonus on the second load they’ll be receiving a $500 load bonus. (Information from Lee) 
  • I haven’t seen the information or heard anything about the load bonus. Probably that’s their strategy for the meantime to keep them on hiring candidates. But I’m not sure how long it will take or if that is their new strategy.


  1. On the Final Mile positions the experience they get while driving for that position gets them the experience they need to move into a class A position? 


  • No, because they are doing class B there and they have to upgrade to Class A license for them to be able to have a Class A position. They be moving internally but they could be part in.
