Commitment to Driver Excellence:
In addition to our competitive mileage pay packages and generous vacation packages Millis Transfer, Inc. makes the following commitments to our drivers to prove our reputation as a driver friendly, family orientated company.
Home Time Commitment:
As a company that believes in QUALITY home time for drivers we provide the drivers with the most generous of vacation schedules. Few if any companies offer drivers the opportunity to have 1 week of paid home-time/vacation after completion of only 6 months of employment and 2 weeks of paid home-time/vacation after completion of only 1 year of continuous employment. In addition to our paid home-time/vacation scheduling, Millis Transfer makes the following commitment to drivers to provide the most flexible home time package in the trucking industry.
Millis’ Home Time Policy shall read that a driver who accumulates 7 days out without a 36 hr at home period will receive a minimum of 36 hours of uninterrupted home time. A driver who accumulates 14 days out without a 36 hr home period will receive a minimum of 72 hrs of uninterrupted home time. A driver who accumulates 21 days or more out without a 36 hr home period will receive a minimum of 108 hrs or 4 ½ days of uninterrupted home time. Home time accumulations are not allowed to be added to paid vacation times.
A driver request for home time will be processed as follows:
Upon dispatch of any load after completion of a home time period, the driver will be allowed to request a home time into the future, not to be less than 7 days from the date of the home time request. Your dispatch manager is at that time obligated to return the driver to his/her home location for a period of not less than 36 hrs. to fulfill the home time request.
Any driver who fails to be allowed the mandated home time earned will be paid at the rate of an additional $.05 per mile for all miles accumulated for days past the home time deadline date.
