About Entry Level Trucking Jobs

Every successful trucking career begins by obtaining your commercial driver’s license. But when you go to apply for a truck driving job, many of them will require at least 3 months to one year of experience. This can make it seem impossible to get a position right out of school. But, don’t be discouraged! There are plenty of entry level trucking jobs to go for, you just need to look a little harder.

Going to CDL School Can Help

Many top trucking companies offer positions with company paid training, and others will hire a driver with no experience as long as they have graduated from an approved CDL training school.

Get Company Paid Training

During company paid training, drivers will spend 4-9 weeks in training and finish by driving as a team with their trainers/mentors. The trucking company needs to be confident in your skills as a solo or team driver before you go it alone.
