We have all been there, the company you work for is unpredictable, they tell you one thing but do another, you need to find a new place to work. It is understandable to find a company that works for you. Keep in mind, the more you move, the more red flags appear for recruiters. Here are four negative effects from job hopping.
- Insurance companies say that someone who hops from job to job is a risk.
The more you change employers in a year, the more difficult it will be for a good safety conscious company to hire you.
- There are a plethora of statistics in the industry that says someone who job hops is a safety risk.
A person who is a safety risk is unhireable. Did you know, if you have more than three jobs in one year, you are twice as likely to have an accident versus someone who has a more stable job history?
- The more you move around, the more it shows a recruiter that you are less likely to stay with his or her company.
Bad trucking companies exist; we know. It is also the professional truck driver’s responsibility to do his or her research before starting a job at a new company.
- It’s expensive to bring a new driver on board.
The average cost of hiring a new driver within his or her first 90 days is roughly $4,000 or maybe more!
It’s the recruiting department’s job to find quality professional truck drivers to join the team. By doing so, recruiters do take a close look into a person’s work history.
That trucking company with a big sign on bonus may seem like a good idea at the time but it may not always be best for you. Before you make the big move, weigh the options.
