HTL Referral Program

At HTL Freight, we consider our team members to be our greatest asset. That’s why we place such high importance on finding ideal matches for our team. So, with the HTL Referral Program, anyone inside or outside the company who sends us a future HTL employee will be rewarded with $1,000 per hire. Here’s how the program works:

Share the Referral Program with Friends, Family, Customers, and More:

The HTL Referral Program is open to everyone, meaning anyone can reap the rewards. You do not have to be an employee to participate in the program. Let your network know that if they refer a candidate to us, they could earn $1,000 per referred hire that completes six months of employment.

What Is the Referral Bonus?

If you know someone you think would be a good fit for a full-time position in our Charlotte headquarters, encourage them to apply and list your name as the person who referred them to our company. If we hire your referred candidate, you are eligible for a $1000 referral bonus when the employee completes six months on the job.

Who Is Eligible for HTL Referral Bonuses?

This HTL Freight Referral Program Policy applies to almost anyone who refers a candidate to our company. The only people ineligible are C-level executives and HR employees/hiring managers recruiting for the positions in question.

Full-time employees, interns, temporary employees, vendors, contractors, former employees, LinkedIn contacts and anyone else who sends a viable employee referral to HTL Freight is eligible for referral bonuses when they refer an external candidate who gets hired for a full-time position and successfully completes six months of employment with HTL.

Who Can be Referred?

We have two conditions for candidates who can qualify as HTL Freight referrals:

  • They have not applied to HTL for at least a year.
  • They are hired as permanent full- or part-time employees (not as temporary employees, interns, or contractors).

Additional Rules for Referral Bonuses:

  • We guarantee that rewards will be paid out within a week of the date an employee in our Charlotte office completes six months of full-time service with HTL Freight in our Charlotte office.
  • There is no cap on the number of referrals an individual can make. All rewards will be paid accordingly.

How to Submit Your Referrals:

  • Candidates should name you as the referring source on the job application. Have them list your email address/phone number so we can get your contact information to send you a check! You can also reach out directly to our HR staff/recruiters with referrals at
  • We encourage you to check out HTL Freight’s open positions regularly and consider your social networks and external networks as potential resources for referred candidates.
  • Keep in mind that rewards may be subject to taxation. Please contact HR for more information.
  • We may change our referral bonus program over time to add other incentives. We also reserve the right to abolish certain rewards if they prove ineffective or inefficient. We’ll clearly communicate any changes in a timely manner. Those who referred candidates before a change will have legacy status with respect to the policy that was in place at the time of the referral.

We look forward to receiving your referrals and writing your first $1,000 check.
