58: Making the Move to Oakley Trucking with Sam Muntean, Owner-Operator

On this week’s episode of the Oakley Podcast, host Jeremy Kellett talks with Sam Muntean, an owner-operator from the hopper-bottom division. Sam made the switch from being a company driver elsewhere to being an owner-operator at Oakley. Since then, he has helped recruit several drivers to the Oakley team.

Key topics in today’s conversation include:

  • Need to Know with Vickie Chastain: tire discounts (1:31)
  • Introduction to Sam Muntean (3:44)
  • Getting the nerve to quit company driving job to come to Oakley (7:40)
  • A smooth truck buying process (10:52)
  • Running a hopper-bottom truck (12:58)
  • Recruiting other drivers and collecting that bonus (17:50)
  • How the pay raise will benefit Sam (22:44)

Thank you, Sam, for joining the show to discuss your experiences in making the switch to Oakley.
