I Want to Retire Here

“In my eleven years of driving, when I came to Helwig in 2010 I knew I was home. I want to retire here. I am treated with respect in every department and the commitment by the company to the driver force is second to none.”

Totally Satisfied with the Company

“I’m totally satisfied with the company. The recruiting started with Debbie. Operations: Mark, Shawn, Ronnie & AJ always keep me going and going. OSD: Crystal & Pam, make sure everything in place, so we can get on our way. Shop: Terry and staff, Night Dispatch: Lee, RC and Mike. Safety: John and staff. Drivers: Every one of them. My goal is to be there for all of the above, office and drivers, 200%”

They Treat me with Respect

“Mr. Helwig has done an excellent job of moving this company up in class. I really appreciate the details that make our new driver’s lounge comfortable, along with nice showers and laundry facility, shows how much this company cares about their drivers. We drive late to new model equipment that is well maintained. I’ve never had a problem here that was not professionally solved, whether it is breakdown, payroll, load, or other issues. Staff is well organized and professional. They treat me with respect; I feel like they understand me as a driver and issues I face on the road. Other drivers here share a higher level of professionalism and courtesy towards each other as well as ambition in their personal lives. I’ve never had a problem getting my home time within reason. And I make good money too.”


All You Could Ask for in a Company

“I’ve been a Helwig driver for close to 4 years. In 20 years driving, I only worked for 3 other companies. But Helwig far outshines the others. Competitive pay and benefits. Great driver facilities and equipment. And friendly office and shop personnel. And pet friendly. About all you could ask for in a company.”

Mark Cheyne

Hands Down Best Company

“Hands down best company. Never has lied and has been upfront and honest about everything. Any issue or problem that has come up, a quick call or message out on the road and it gets fixed. At the yard, just a matter of going to talk to who I need in order to get problems fixed.”

Hire Already Motivated People and Inspire Them

Cindy Powers

Thank You Helwig

“Well, I don’t drive for Helwig, but my husband Robert does. I went to orientation with him. They put us up at a really nice hotel. I got to go to orientation and met the owner James. He is a really nice guy. The employees lounge and kennels they have for the fur babies are above and beyond great. I got to meet everyone in the office. In that office there was not one frowning face, everyone had a smile and said hi. Everyone was happy to meet everyone coming through. I really like my husband’s dispatcher Mike he is a real cool guy. My husband is happy, they got him home when they said they would, and they keep him moving. Thank you Helwig. I have a feeling it only gets better from here. Great company to work for.

Sharon Rapposelli Wilcox

Part of Their Family

“I’ve never felt more comfortable with any other company. I don’t worry about the miles here because I run hard. Everyone makes me feel like I’m part of their family.

Smokie Brandenburg

This Is a Happy Wife of a Trucker

“This year will be my husband’s 5th year with Helwig. I can honestly say this has been the best company he has worked for. The company is family oriented and will do what they can for every situation. Mr. Helwig works on location and wants to hear from his drivers. He will host company picnics at the yard and he also hosts driver appreciation, which lasts for a week. So this is a happy wife of a trucker at J.S. Helwig.”
