Hamrick students meeting demand for truck drivers

There are plenty of applicants for truck carriers to choose from, but few have the kind of training and experience they are looking for. That is why the turnover rate for many drivers across the country is relatively high and why students of Hamrick School are having success finding the right commercial trucking job upon completion of the CDL training program.

Students of the CDL training programs at Hamrick School are put in the driver’s seat of their career path as many complete the program with multiple job offers and opportunities. The shortage of commercial drivers means that many professionally trained drivers have their pick as to which carrier they want to work for and what region of the country they want to work in.

Professionally trained commercial truck drivers are in high demand and the trucking sector is one of the fastest growing industries in America. Truck carriers of all sizes are looking for more drivers and it’s a challenge that is actually holding the industry back from growing even more. Both long- and short-haul routes are being added every day as freight orders rise. Improvements in construction, manufacturing and auto sales have all contributed to the rapid growth currently being experienced by the commercial truck industry.

Working as a commercial truck driver offers many advantages, including good pay and benefits, the chance for flexibility and the ability to work in a non-traditional work environment. This career also offers a unique challenge and positions on both short- and long-haul routes are in demand.
