Truck Driver Training
There are more than 3 million Americans driving trucks for a living, and there are more truck driving jobs than that. Pick up any newspaper in the country, search the web and you’re likely to see lots of truck driving jobs. Take a drive down any freeway, and almost every semi you see will have an ad on its side or back offering to hire truckers.
Anyone who doesn’t mind navigating a tractor trailer will never have to worry about being out of work. The opportunities are endless. How do you get started as a truck driver? You’ve got to have a commercial driver’s license, or CDL. Theoretically, you could get a CDL on your own, but that’s not recommended and it’s hardly ever done.
The best way is to attend a reputable truck driving school. In fact, many trucking companies have their own schools, the company will sponsor you training in order to obtain a driver and guarantee you a truck driving job upon graduation.
Driver Recruiting Services Inc will expedite your way into one of these Company Sponsored CDL Schools. Generally you’ll have to work for them for at least a year after graduation, but that’s a good policy anyway.
One of the biggest problems in the trucking industry is turnover, people hopping from company to company, hoping to find that perfect truck driving job. You want to avoid that as much as possible. Job hop too much and you’ll find that no company will hire you. How do you find a good company to start with?
The same way experienced truckers do. You’ve got to know what you want and Driver Recruiting Services Inc is here to help. We have done the research for you and provide a way for you to find the “perfect” truck driving job. Even the best companies will have their downsides.
So before you head off to private truck driving school and spend thousands of dollars and years paying it off you need to contact Driver Recruiting Services Inc. The first thing you need to do is make a list of what’s most important to you. Are you looking for the most money, and everything else takes second place, are you looking for more time home?
Do you want to drive as a team or do you want to drive solo? Is the quality of equipment important to you? Do you hope to one day be an owner operator? Then make sure up front that the company has an O/O division, and if you’ll be able to qualify down the road. Do you need to drive the same truck all the time, or are you fine with slip seating?
How much loading and unloading will you be expected to do? How long will it take before you get a dedicated route, if you want one? These are the kind of things you want to find out before you take a job. And don’t just take the company’s word for it.
