Calvin Field has been awarded June Driver of the Month for National Carriers, Inc. A former Nazarene pastor, Field has driven a company truck within the NCI Hide division since August of 2013. He delivers cattle hides from National Beef Products beef processing plants in SW Kansas to a NBP tannery in St. Joseph, Missouri.
Field explained why he choose to drive at National Carriers, “I was unemployed for a year when my wife called NCI to inquire about opportunities. We liked what we heard so we filled out an application. A recruiter called us immediately and within two days I was headed to Irving, TX for orientation. During orientation I was diagnosed with sleep apnea which required an apparatus for while sleeping be eligible to drive. NCI helped me get what I needed to be able to drive and the rest, as they say, is history.”
Director of Livestock / Hide division, Jason Greer stated, “Cal is part of a team of drivers who ensures that NBP Leathers gets they require, even though it’s almost the same day in and day out we have tight schedules and deadlines. Cal makes sure every load he is assigned is delivered without fail. I also appreciate his wife, who makes some of the best cookies my office has ever eaten!”
