What is a truck driver recruiter?

Jun 14, 2019

Thirty years ago, there were no such thing as a truck driver recruiter in the trucking industry. It was unheard of primarily because it was unnecessary. Trucking companies didn’t have trouble finding drivers for their trucks because trucking was a well-paying, respected profession.

In recent years, there is a higher demand for truck drivers but not nearly enough professionals to fill the seats. The decline in truck driving professionals isn’t surprising considering that companies are offering less competitive pay. As a result, many trucking companies are employing driver recruiters in order to get their trucks out on the road.

If you are a new driver coming into the trucking industry, you’re more than likely going to have to deal with one of these recruiters. Interviewing with truck driver recruiters can be one of the biggest stress points for you when you first start off with a company. At Sisbro, however, this is truly nothing to worry about!

Our recruiters live to learn more about you and your needs. We’ll be prepared to answer questions that include “What is the mileage rate paid,” “What is the rate of pay for waiting time,” “Am I competing with company trucks for loads,” “What’s the number of miles expected per week,” “Are there dedicated lanes available in my area,” “Can I take my truck home at the end of the week,” and much more!

Sisbro recruiters help you pick where you want to drive. We have lanes available throughout the Midwest, both local and OTR. We’ll help you pick the one that works for you and your family.
