Transportation – Driving Jobs: How to Get a Job As A Truck Driver

Demand for quality truck driver jobs has never been greater: 70% of the nation’s economy is delivered by trucks. Drivers must be able to lift 35lbs-50lbs, deliver cases with a hand truck, have strong customer service, a valid Class C drivers license with an acceptable DMV report, basic knowledge of the freeways and cities in the area and able to pass a pre-employment drug screen and physical.

Delivery Driver job postings have decreased 54% since July 2008 while the competition clicks have risen 105%! Now-a-days it’s extremely important to have experience and the desire to improve performance. Luckily driving schools will help you gain an understanding for the industry and build your reputation within the trucking community.
