Thank you for your interest in our open position at Falcon Transportation LLC. First I’d like to give a little background on our company. We’re an asset-based company, based in Presque Isle, ME with offices all over the US. We also have a dozen agent-offices spread across the country from Florida to Arizona. We currently handle approximately 300 owner-operators that are exclusively leased to Falcon, as well as 60 company trucks. We also have a brokerage division. We have lease-purchase programs for both van and reefer trailers for owner-operator candidates, as well as fuel discount programs through EFS at TA/Petro facilities. As we continue to grow we’re looking for a larger footprint in specific areas, which is why we’re currently advertising for an opening in your area. We anticipate hiring one or two candidates, depending on experience and what trucks/shippers you can bring to the table. With this position we’re looking for someone to hit the ground running and be willing to get in the trenches and go to work.If you believe you fit what we’re looking for, please get back to me with what experience you have, as well as what services (truck following, customers) you can bring with you when you come aboard. For this position, salary and bonus programs will be negotiable. Thank you, we look forward to hearing from you!
