Drivers who drive our equipment must obtain a Class A Commercial Driver's License (CDL-A). Obtaining your CDL is a great investment, as this is an in-demand skill with great job stability. Drivers in this industry enjoy the freedom of the open road, being able to see the country, and that they can live just about anywhere in the United States and be able to have a good paying job!
About the Industry
The trucking industry is a 642 billion dollar industry and professional drivers are essential to the U.S. economy. They have the important job of delivering the food we eat, clothes we wear and materials that build our houses. These are essential jobs that cannot be shipped overseas.
It is relatively easy to start your career as a professional truck driver. Getting your CDL takes 4 to 6 weeks and costs anywhere from $3,000 to $6,000. That may seem like a lot upfront, but what other career do you know of where you can learn a new skill and make a great paycheck in less than three months? Average first year earnings for a driver with TMC is $55,000, and top performers can make over $70,000!
If you are interested in driving for TMC and do not have a CDL, we can provide the guidance you need to get into the trucking industry. Call us today at 800-247-2862 Ext 3, or apply now to get pre-qualified.
