Retail Jobs vs. Truck Driving Careers

Retail jobs.  They come and go.  Many are seasonal.  Most are hourly.  And very few produce long-lasting, enjoyable careers. 

So instead of letting another day, week, month or year pass working a retail job - why not break out of the chains to start a truck driving career?

Here are 3 reasons to pick a truck driving career over a retail job:

3 Reasons to Pick a Trucking Career Over Retail Jobs

1. Stability

Truckers are in demand.  There is no seasonality.  There is no, "we don't need you today so you can go home." 

In fact, it's quite the opposite.  Truck drivers keep America moving and this industry is one of the most stable you can find. 

2. Advancement

There are opportunities in trucking and you can advance your career quickly.  With a retail job, you could be waiting years and years for your big break. 

With companies such as PAM Transport, you can get a HazMat Endorsement to make more money, become a Driver Mentor to train new drivers or manage your own mini business as an Owner Operator...and that's all in just the 1st year!   Learn more about these 1st year opportunities here

3. Freedom

Retail jobs just don't provide freedom.  In fact, far from it.  And often times, there's nothing worse than being stuck in a store uniform when you just don't want to be there.

Truck driving jobs give you the freedom to make your own schedule and travel from state to state.  Truck drivers see more of this country in a year than most do in a lifetime.  When it comes to freedom, there's just nothing quite like it.
