A career in commercial truck driving

Nov 16, 2018

There are many positives to a career in truck driving. Growth in the transportation industry is spurred by the increased adoption of new technologies that allow time-specific delivery and electronic tracking of cargo, according to Hoover’s Online. Nearly 70 percent of freight moved in the U.S. is on trucks.

Trucking jobs are in demand. For independent, hard-working drivers, opportunity abounds.

Training

Enrolling in a truck driving school will teach you the hands-on skills and the industry knowledge allowing you to pass the CDL exam test and get yourself into a position that will allow you to gain the six months experience needed to qualify for a job at Sisbro.

Truck driver training programs are available at a very affordable cost. For only several thousand dollars and the cost of your state license fees, you can get to work. Compare this to a Bachelor’s Degree in business or another similar four-year degree and you’ll find quite a difference in the financial and time commitment.

Job Security

As the transportation industry continues to grow, Sisbro sees a consistent need for new truck drivers. Our jobs withstand outsourcing and automation, and we need full-time truck drivers to fill our vacancies. While you’ll see driving jobs advertised in nearly every city, Sisbro is a respected, competitive company ready to help you thrive.

For more than 30 years, Sisbro has been the trucking company for drivers who want to work for a company where drivers matter. Sisbro driver benefits help us stand out from any other hauler. You’ll have 100 percent company-paid health insurance for you and your family. You choose OTR, Regional, or Local and Live Load or not. There is no forced dispatch either.

Independence

Truck driving is a big-picture type of job. If the 9 to 5 lifestyle, stocking shelves, or crunching numbers isn’t for you, driving a truck might be the right fit. Drivers enjoy the freedom of the open road. They don’t have to dress up, and they see new faces every day. Great drivers with a professional demeanor will always have a place at Sisbro.

Savor your home time

Your home time and time with your family is extremely important to your lifestyle. Seasoned drivers know that this can be a problem for truckers in general, but not when you drive for Sisbro. We make your home time and family time come first. We’ll pair you with a fleet manager that will handle all your scheduling needs and work around your desired schedule and possible emergencies.

If you’re looking for solid pay, incredible insurance, and a job where you matter and are listened to, give Sisbro a chance. Reach out to us if you care about your family and home time and value honesty, flexibility, support, and professionalism.
