Revolution Staffing was founded on and operates by 3 simple principles.
Work Hard – Simply never give up, show our Customers our best efforts to assist them in every situation and they will give us opportunities in the future.
Tell the Truth – Telling the truth is a value that is all too rare in today’s pluralistic society. Truth is simple, it is plain, it doesn’t require an explanation or caveat. We believe by telling the simple truth, by not weaving a story around what we say, it makes everything a lot easier, for our Drivers, for our Customers and for ourselves. With Revolution Staffing you can expect the straight goods every time.
Finish the Job – Finishing is a lost art, starting is easy, but to bring a task to the finish line is not, we can’t fill every order we take, but we can assure our Customers of our very best efforts to do so and a steady stream of communication along the way. If you need us after hours a live person will answer the phone and do their best to help you fill that spot, we won’t quit until you ask us to.
The road to success at RevStaff has been that simple.
What we do
When you need a driver for today or tomorrow you can call Revolution Staffing and get a qualified experienced driver to fill in for a short term. We have a large pool of experienced and qualified drivers who have been there and done that before, whatever it is that you need them to do. Let us help you get the job done today.
Sometimes it is nice to know who is coming and while we can supply good quality drivers on a moments notice, often our Customers prefer to get the same driver back again and again, maybe you have consistent weekend work, or perhaps you have work 3 evenings a week but you can’t take someone on full time for that part time role, we can build a pool of drivers to cover those spots who are trained and ready to go as an extension of your Full Time Staff.
As the age of your driver force increases likely the number of days your team requires vacation coverage increases also. Get a consistent driver to cover off all your vacation coverage someone you can train and keep busy through the holiday season covering off the rotating vacation schedule of your Full Time Drivers.
You know that guy is coming back and WSIB says you have to keep a spot open for him, so replacing them with someone only to lay them off in 6 weeks or 6 months just doesn’t seem right. Utilize our pool of qualified and experienced drivers so they can fill the gap while your down a man.
On going Long Term Permanent Driver Service Personnel is a growing trend at some of the largest Trucking Firms in North America – WHY? It is easier. That is it that is all, you didn’t get into this business because you like hiring and firing people, you are not necessarily an expert at determining which person is the perfect fit, so why not outsource your Driver Qualification and Hiring process and add all the Payroll and H/R headaches to boot. You’ll be happier the driver will be happier and there is less liability to manage.
Old world values combined with the latest technology allows Revolution Staffing to distinguish itself as a unique player in the Driver Leasing and Temp Driver marketplace. By using an independent third party for our Driver Testing and Driver Verification process we eliminate a lot of time in the hiring process and we add both Integrity and Accuracy to the hiring process. Reducing Time in the hiring process wins us relational capital with the Drivers. Increasing the integrity and accuracy of the process wins us relational capital with the Customers – It truly is a WIN – WIN situation.
In a business with no tangible product you have to focus on relationships, what is especially challenging about the Agency business is that we have to cultivate those relationships on both sides of the ledger Driver and Customer. In the end we are always striving for a perfect balance between Drivers and Customers, but frankly in today’s marketplace Drivers are far more important than Customers. Really it comes down to basic Economics “SUPPLY vs. DEMAND” and in today’s marketplace I have 5 Customers for every “Top Notch”, “Cream of the Crop” driver!
Getting those drivers is hard work and our Driver Managers are relationally invested in the driver candidates before we ever get them through the door. That is how you get the best Drivers in the market by building a relationship and showing the drivers the respect that they deserve. When you entrust someone with $200,000 worth of equipment and an additional $50,000 to $500,000 worth of freight you’d better have invested more than 30 minutes and new plastic pen into that person. And once they are in the truck you had better keep investing in them, and continue to treat them with the respect they deserve. Unfortunately every once in a while we run across a Company who doesn’t understand that and we have to FIRE the Customer, if you disrespect our Drivers we can’t risk losing our most valuable assets because your dispatch team is having a bad hair day.
In the end our difference is based in our Relationships and the technology is a tool that fosters and manages those relationships.
At Revolution Staffing we understand Drivers, it is all we do.
From the start we were founded with the idea that we could “Change the way people think about agencies!”.
Who we are
In 2005 Revolution Staffing was founded by our President Dave MacDonald, recognizing the ongoing need for Professional Truck Drivers in a market starved for quality drivers. The agency driver business was a crowded marketplace with a myriad of suppliers of all shapes and sizes.
The reality was that in many cases neither the Customer nor the drivers were being well served by the Agencies. There was a mistrust between Customers and agencies that the agencies were trying to subvert the hiring process and insert under qualified drivers into the Companies trucks increasing risk and accident claims in the process. To counteract the growing mistrust Revolution Staffing created a transparent working relationship between Customer and Driver facilitated by state of the art software that allowed the Customer to see the driver’s entire file before letting them set foot in their equipment.
