Looking for a job? Have you considered driving a truck?
What is involved? Driving, early starts and maybe night driving, lots of fast food and little exercise.
What skills do I need?
You need to have a full automobile driving licence.
You need to be over 18, over 21 or even 25 in some cases. Check with the licensing people regarding the minimum age for driving a truck.
The ability to speak English. Many companies will not let you onto their premises unless you can understand safety signs and directions written in English.
Patience. You will meet a lot of stupidity as you drive around the country, largely from inexperienced drivers.
The ability to work early mornings, or late evenings, without it affecting your body chemistry too much
Where do you start? There are several routes into the job.
You can start as a drivers assistant, sitting in the cab, helping to unload and blocking traffic when the driver is reversing the truck. The company will hopefully contribute towards the cost of your truck driving training.
You can pay a truck driving school to teach you the ins and outs of handling different kinds...
