Driver Testimonial: Jerry Sims
Our December Driver Testimonial comes from Jerry Sims. Jerry is a driver trainer out of our Markham, Illinois terminal and is celebrating his tenth year with us.
At the age of 12, Jerry started working on trucks after the paperman caught him trying to pull a paper out of a gate rather than spend the money his mom gave him for the paper. He enjoyed working on the trucks so much he decided to make a 31 year career out of it.
Originally, Jerry worked for Matlack but left after Superior Carriers purchased the company in 2001. After a couple of years of keeping in touch with the Jim Carl, the Chicagoland terminal manager, Jerry and two others decided to come work for Superior. Out of the eleven drivers that Jerry has recruited over the years, ten of them are still with the company today.
But let’s let him tell you more about that and his experience with Superior Carriers in his Driver Testimonial below.
“I make more money here than I did at any other company. They gotta fire me because I’m not gonna quit.”
