THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE JOB OPPORTUNITIES IN THE COMMERCIAL DRIVING INDUSTRY!
Statistics reveal impressive results about the trucking industry. Nowadays, 78% of everything consumed in the U.S. is delivered by commercial drivers. This is a great fact to be aware of, especially when making the decision of becoming a commercial driver. This type of job is essential to the American economy since the business world could not succeed without the transportation industry, and commercial drivers are the ones who transport everything our nation needs. It is virtually a recession-proof industry and one of the highest paying jobs available that doesn’t require a high-school diploma or college degree.
This demand for transportation services and activities has made the industry provide better pay, more advance equipment and even better benefits for the employees; making the commercial driving profession a more comfortable, satisfying and enjoyable one. And remember, if it doesn’t fit your lifestyle, you don’t have to be an OTR (“over the road”) commercial driver, since many local companies need CDL drivers as well.
Some benefits of the commercial driving profession include:
• Job Security
• Vacation Pay
• Holiday Pay
• Health Insurance Plans
• Disability Insurance Plans
• Retirement Programs and Plans
• Most people dream of being able to travel all the time; you get paid to travel.
ARE YOU A CDL DRIVER WITH NO EXPERIENCE? DON’T WORRY!
Usually, inexperienced CDL drivers are concerned about their chances of getting local employers to hire them. It’s good for you to know that a CDL driver with experience coming off the road and looking for a new job have two things that local employers are not too fond of: they would not work for less money than what they are accustom to, and they have habits (good or bad) that they bring to the new job. These for sure are disadvantages for the local employers that you may be interested in working with. Being capable to adapt to the way the employer runs the company is a great asset they value at the moment of hiring.
So what are you waiting for? Become the commercial driver you dream to be! CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School will make it possible!
