Rick Hartman, Service Manager: 30 Years of Service

Salem supports you regardless of your job, which is why it has so many long-term employees. Salem is like a family when it comes to taking care of its employees. At Salem, attention to safety and service is never compromised. Salem appreciates hard work and gives employees an opportunity to chart their own career path. I began my career in the Wash Bay and now I’m Service Manager over a large Maintenance Facility. Salem is truly a great place to work which is exactly why I have been here for 30 years.

Jeff Blevins, Driver: 19 Years of Service

Teamwork is a very important part of working at Salem. The "Excellence in Transportation" mission is all about providing top customer service in a safe work environment. Drivers are taught to be professional on and off the road. I’m proud to be a driver for Salem and appreciate the opportunity to work for a company that values its drivers by providing top notch equipment we can depend on to get the job done. At Salem, employees are the face of the company and I appreciate the trust I’ve been shown to represent Salem in serving customers.

Working at Salem has been a blessing to have a stable job for 17 years. It has truly been an honor to work with the Salem Team. I work for a company that is fair and very loyal to its employees, and that is why I’m so loyal to the company. I have worked with the Accounts Payable Team for my 17 years. At Salem employees are not just numbers and are treated with respect by the company and by each other. This is a workplace, but it is also a home away from home. After 17 years, I can say “I Still Love My Job” and that is the honest truth.
