Hirschbach Motor Lines, headquartered in East Dubuque, Illinois announced today it is offering up to $10,000 in sign on bonuses for new drivers.  All new drivers get a cash bonus of $5000.  New lease purchase drivers also get an extra $5000 in the form of a down payment on their lease truck.  

Recruiting Manager, Greg Finzen, said the cash bonus for all new drivers is paid out over a 12 month span starting with the first payment in just 30 days.  "We'll pay $1000 after one month with us, another $2000 after six months, and the final $2000 after 12 months on the job," Finzen said.

The $5000 down payment new lease drivers receive greatly reduces the buyout at the end of their lease - in some cases the buyout is as low as $1, Finzen noted.  Hirschbach currently leases late model Volvos, Freightliners, and Peterbilts.

The company is accepting applications for company drivers, lease purchase operators, and owner operators.  Trainees with a Class A CDL who have graduated from an approved CDL school will also be considered.

Established in 1935, Hirschbach Motor Lines is a refrigerated carrier running freight lanes mainly east of the Rocky Mountains.  Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the recruiting department at 800-208-9057 or apply online at or
