USA Truck recently announced the winner of the company’s driver referral contest during a surprise event at its headquarters in Van Buren, Ark. Donald Green, a company driver from Springfield, Ill., took the grand prize, which was his choice of $20,000 or a new Chevrolet Silverado; Green, who has worked for USA Truck for three years, chose the $20,000 prize. Coworkers and other special guests were present at the Oct. 6 awards ceremony.
USA Truck started the contest to encourage drivers to become familiar with the company’s driver referral program. “USA Truck has some of the best drivers in the industry, and encouraging them to recruit their family and friends makes perfect sense,” says Mike Weindel, vice president of human resources, recruiting and training. “The contest really helped increase participation in our driver referral program. There was a great response.”
