MIDDLEBURY, Ind. — Team RV Express recently combined the grand opening of its new recruiting and orientation facility in White Pigeon, Michigan, with a driver appreciation event.
More than 200 drivers attended the two-day event held October 29 and 30.
“We couldn’t have been any happier with the number of drivers who attended the two lunches,” Human Resources Director Brian Mellstead said. “Team RV Express owners Mike and Kelly McGee went out of their way to make sure we showed every driver who attended how valuable they are to this company.
“We try to do something like this every year but because most of our drivers live hundreds of miles away it’s difficult to schedule an event that attracts them and then gets them back home with a delivery,” Mellstead added. “We had drivers and their wives or husbands and even a couple of youngsters this year. It went really well”
The event included two catered lunches at the new facility. Team RV Express sister company Ready RV started using the two-bays located at the new center a week earlier but stopped PDI production for the driver appreciation event.
“We certainly appreciate the cooperation from Ready RV,” Mellstead said. “It skews their production numbers for the month a little bit but overall it’s worth doing. The drivers had a nice lunch, some fun camaraderie and were very appreciative of what was done on their behalf to demonstrate how appreciative we are of their work.”
