National Carriers, Inc. has named Mindy Parson as May Driver of the Month and Derius Jordan as June Driver of the Month. 

Irving, TX, For Immediate Release - National Carriers, Inc. has named Mindy Parson as May Driver of the Month and Derius Jordan as June Driver of the Month. Both have received a one thousand dollar bonus and are now eligible to be named 2022 Driver of the Year. The Driver of the Year will receive an additional ten thousand dollar bonus.

NCI Mindy ParsonsDirector of Media, Ed Kentner expounded, “Both Mindy and Derius perform their job at a high level. Putting the motoring public’s safety first, each has achieved our highest rating in customer service. It is work ethic such as this that allows our company to live up to the name the ‘Elite’ fleet.”

After eleven years as an administrative assistant in an auto part manufacturing plant, Parson was a victim of corporate downsizing. As a single parent of grown children, she felt the call to do something completely different in the workforce. The state of Tennessee offered grants for displaced workers, one of which provided for Class A CDL training. With the desire to explore the country combined with the thought of solitude without a boss looking over her shoulder, she eagerly enrolled. Once she completed her schooling, she combed through online advertising to find the right trucking company for her.

“I chose National Carriers, because they offered paid training and it felt like they had a family-oriented workplace. Once I was trained, I got my own truck and traveled the country. Over time a dedicated route near my home became available and I signed up for it. I drive six to seven days a week regionally. I am very happy with my work situation,” shared Parson.

NCI Derius JordanDerius Jordan also joined National Carriers as a trainee. A friend had recommended that he call National Carriers and apply.

“NCI was the first company I called. Recruiter Dena Moore immediately made me feel comfortable. My trainer taught me the ins and outs of the business during our time together. After operating a company truck for several months my driver manager helped me get into the truck leasing program. The lease is great. I stay out four to six weeks at a time. While working here I have found that everyone talks to everyone and you can speak to the management if you have a problem. No one bothers me if I don’t bother them,” he explained.
