COMMERCE CITY, CO--(Marketwire -08/07/12)- According to a recent article from The Beaver County Times, many trucking companies have trouble filling the many driver positions they have open. Finding willing employees is a rare problem in today's economy, especially with U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimating that "more than 330,000 jobs are expected to open up in the trucking industry between 2010 and 2020." Many recruiters are turning to new ways to find drivers, but also highlight the many obstacles that prevent individuals from applying. Motor Car Auto Carriers is a vehicle shipment company that is very familiar with the challenges a trucking career can present, but explains some of the career's positive points.
Above all else, both the article and Motor Car Auto Carriers explain that taking a job as a truck driver is one that requires a "commitment to the road." This means having a varied schedule, traveling alone at extended distances and being away from home for a large percentage of the time. It is also hard for companies to attract young professionals, as the law requires drivers to be at least 21 to drive -- by the time job-seeking high school graduates reach that age, they will most likely have already discovered another career path.
The article cites the recruitment efforts of trucking companies that include possible apprenticeship programs and promotional events at truck stops. Still, many are wary to pay up-front for training and adopt a new lifestyle. While these factors may deter some job-seekers, Motor Car Auto Carriers sees these open positions as a great opportunity for one to travel and experience America.
In addition, the article notes that these jobs are not without their rewards, considering that the "average yearly income [registers] at about $38,000. That's about $4,000 above the country's median wage, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics." As part of the growing trucking industry, Bill Bruce Balsley, Motor Car Auto Carriers President adds, "We at Motor Car Auto Carriers understand that driving means many hours away from home, but we want to reassure potential drivers that the trucking industry provides numerous benefits for those looking to earn a great income while traveling around the nation. As the industry continues to grow, we look forward to potentially providing people with careers that offer a lot of independence."
