You should stay at your first trucking company for more than a year. No really, you should. There are so many benefits and job hopping is not always worth it.
Here are five reasons you should stay at your first trucking company for more than a year.
1. Onto Bigger and Better?
What you read online is not always true. While that forum for new truck drivers may say to get a year and move on, it is not always the best advice. In fact, those flashy promises from other trucking companies usually have a catch.
2. Be Known
The longer you stay at your trucking company, the more friendly you will become with others there. They will remember important things like: your anniversary or a birth of a new family member. You will not get that relationship by changing jobs every year.
3. Reap the Rewards
Most companies will pay based off experience. Sure, you will start from the bottom but if you stick around, you can also receive yearly bonuses. The longer you stay, the bigger the bonus. For example, when companies hire for the highly valued city driving positions, it usually goes to someone with tenure.
4. Make Your Mark
If you want more than a job, you have to be more than an employee. You must become invested. Being invested in a company may be hard to believe if it's your third company in three years. TransLand has programs like Top Gun and driver advisory council to engage professional drivers.
