Trailer driver truck jobs involve, as the name implies, driving a trailer truck from one point to another. This is one of the highest paying jobs, so the hiring process is just as rigorous, ensuring that the job is offered only to the highly qualified and potential assets to the company.
The hiring process that applicants must undergo include the drug tests and the signing of a fleet policy. The drug tests are mandatory as expected, as no company in the right mind would hire someone who is under the influence of drugs to drive millions of dollars’ worth of products and equipment.
Fleet policy writes expectations and requirements for the driver as soon as he or she is hired, such as outlining the work hours and the needed dedication to the job. Some more requirements for those that do pass include repeated drug testing and MVR.
There is also the checking of the behaviour and the background of the applicant in general, to ensure that no previous record can potentially hinder the applicant from rendering his work or could be a detriment to the company.
All these checks as well as the practical exams for driving make for a very tight hiring process for the candidate. It is no wonder that trailer truck driving is one of the best jobs for those that can be accepted and can keep performing properly for as long as they stay.
