These days, truck drivers are some of the most in-demand jobs. They help get goods and products where they need to go, and they work to do it in the safest and most efficient way possible. When it comes to working in the logistics industry, trucking jobs are some of the most important. So, how do you become a truck driver with the team here at Source One? We’re here to break down the process.
Do Your Research
If you’re wondering how to get a job in truck driving, it all starts before you ever get behind the wheel. Do your research and see if this career path is for you. You can also talk to a truck driver to get authentic feedback about the experiences you can expect to have on the road. You should also do some research on the company you want to work for. When it comes to Source One, you’ll be happy to know that you won’t have to travel overnight, you’ll be rewarded with quarterly safety bonuses, and you’ll be working with a company that’s been named in the Top Workplaces in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for four years running!
Enroll in Driving School
Once you’ve decided truck driving is right for you, you’ll need to enroll in driving school. Driving a truck is much different than driving a regular car, which is why you’ll need to take special classes showing you the ropes.
Picked out a school? Now it’s time for class! You’ll be taught everything you need to know to safely get out on the road and operate a truck. Once you finish your classes, you’ll take both a written test and a road test, and if you pass both, you’ll be rewarded with a CDL (commercial driver’s license).
