We just got back from doing some interviews here at Driver Solutions with students currently in truck driver training. We'll be posting these videos over the next couple of weeks, but wanted to go ahead and share some of the reasons these individuals decided to pursue a truck driver career.
During the interviews, we talked with students in their second and third weeks here at our trucking school and asked them questions such as, "Why did you decide to pursue a truck driving career?" or "So, what was it that attracted you to truck driving?"
Here are the top 3 reasons they decided to get into truck driving:
- truck driving jobs are available now - some said they had looked into other career options, but found many weren't hiring
- liked the idea of getting to travel - most stated that they enjoy driving and want to see the country
- starting pay and job stability - most felt the starting pay and benefits were very solid and said the industry seemed stable since businesses heavily rely on trucks
If you would like to get started in a truck driver career, consider these three reasons and then complete our online driver application to arrange a time to speak with a Driver Agent. Your Driver Agent will answer any questions you have about truck driving jobs and help you move forward with CDL training.
