Much like the mighty Native American tribe the trucking company derives its name from, Navajo has been an uncompromising champion of the road for over 75 years. The Colorado-based carrier has served the lower 48 states with incredibly reliable service and specialty in reefer-based carriers as well as dry goods. New Kenworth models accompany drivers on the road for Navajo, with new drivers seeing a guarantee of later-model equipment
While Navajo has several different structures of pay that coincide with a driver's experience level, truckers with Navajo often report a figure close to $52, 456 per year. Navajo reports that a driver's cents per mile will depend on their situation and whether they truck solo or team, but new drivers joining the Navajo team have the chance to earn up to $0.43 per mile when beginning. Bonus programs for drivers who complete extra miles are in place, with OTR drivers seeing bonus pay when they hit 9,500 miles a month. With pay weekly on every Wednesday, Navajo drivers are assured to consistently see pay on a regular basis.
In addition to the weekly pay from Navajo, all OTR drivers see additional mileage pay for detention and layover time. Navajo also sees a referral based-program in effect for the company. Navajo operates with a company culture that thrives on word-of-mouth by way of drivers promoting Navajo to one another. Not only do drivers thrive fiscally when they turn a friend on colleague on to Navajo, the entire team earns another enthusiastic and goal-oriented member of the Navajo team.
