Driver of the month for May 2018 at National Carriers Inc. (NCI) is company driver Tommy McMahon.
He lives in Jasper, TX, and operates a company truck throughout the lower 48 states. McMahon began working at National Carriers in January of 2010. For his accomplishment, he received a bonus of $1000 and is now a finalist for NCI Driver of the Year, which includes a bonus of $10,000.
“In December of 2009, the company I had worked for eight years closed their doors, leaving drivers stranded all over the country,” McMahon said. “NCI called me before I had a chance to look for another job. They were looking for people that were not job hoppers, who wanted stability and wanted to work. In a matter of days, I was in Irving, Texas, attending orientation. I’ve stayed at NCI because of the family atmosphere. I feel like I belong here. I’m not just a driver.”
“Whether the subject is safe driving habits, on time deliveries, truck maintenance or customer service, Tommy McMahon is a leader in each area,” according to National Carriers spokesman Ed Kentner. “From the first day he attended orientation through today, he has made himself an invaluable contributor to National Carriers continued success.”
“I haven’t any hesitation to walk into the president’s office and visit,” McMahon added. “He treats me as a human being, not just as a driver. He cares what is going on with me, my business and my equipment. Customer service, dispatch, the shop, safety and driver services all have an open-door policy. Even our settlement department is excellent in communicating with our drivers. I don’t worry about my payroll because I know it is done right. If I send in the right information, I will get the right paycheck each week. I receive an email on Wednesday stating what my deposit will be. Friday, when I wake up, I can check my account and it will be there.”
National Carriers serves all 48 states in the continental United States with transportation offerings that include refrigerated, livestock, and logistics services.
