Jobing rewards employees who wrap thier autos in ads by covering all fuel expenses and paying monthly stipend.

At Jobing.com we take great pride in our employees and reward their hard work with some truly extraordinary employee benefits

With the pain at the gas pump getting worse every day, what would you do to get your boss to help pay for your gas? Employees at Jobing.com already have the answer to that question: turn your car into a mobile billboard for your employer. The locally-focused employment site has long had a popular benefit program for employees who brand their personal vehicle: the company pays a monthly stipend and covers 100% of employee fuel costs- whether personal or business related. Participating employee vehicles are wrapped in a plastic coating with company branded, eye-catching designs; Jobing.com covers all related expenses and adds extra money to employee paychecks for participating.

"At Jobing.com we take great pride in our employees and reward their hard work with some truly extraordinary employee benefits," said Jobing.com spokesperson Joe Cockrell. "The vehicle wrap program provides a great way for our employees to earn extra money and have their gas covered by the company; and with the way gas prices are going the benefit is becoming more and more valuable."

The first Jobing mobile hit the streets in 2001, when Jobing.com was a staff of only 10 people. The idea came from CEO and Founder, Aaron Matos, who wanted to find a cost-effective, unique way to create awareness for the company within the community. The Jobing mobile concept would do that and create a unique way for Jobing.com employees to earn some extra money. Today, there are 270 Jobing.com employees across the country and 61% of them drive a wrapped vehicle, including the CEO.

"We love that our Jobing mobiles help us accomplish our mission while giving our employees a truly valuable benefit," Matos said. "Wherever our employees go, so do the mobile billboards, creating thousands of impressions every day and allowing our employees to be ambassadors of our brand. Most of all, it's a way for Jobing.com to help our employees during a time when many are burdened by the escalating gas prices."

Employees who drive a wrapped vehicle get an additional $500 added to their paycheck every month and Jobing.com picks up the tab for all fuel costs. Most employees are eligible to participate in the wrap program within their first year of employment, depending on performance. Jobing.com requires a good driving record to participate and employees must complete a driving safety class. Not all types of vehicles are eligible for a wrap; Jobing.com prefers cars that are less than five years old and will only wrap certain body styles. For more information visit http://www.jobing.com.
