Why Drive for CR England?

C.R. England Careers: 5 Things to Remember When Hunting for CDL Jobs

In a day and age when it seems work is harder than ever to find, there is one industry in need of workers: trucking. The industry is so in need that companies such as C.R. England work directly with new hires to get them trained, licensed, and ready for long and productive careers. CDL jobs are out there for anyone that wants them.
Whether you are hunting for CDL jobs in Utah or Pennsylvania, there are some things you need to know. Looking for a job in trucking is similar in some ways to job hunting in other industries, but different in other respects. Here are five things to remember as you begin your CDL job search.
Experience Needed
There is no shortage of trucking companies whose job offers say that experience is needed. The problem is that new truckers just out of CDL School cannot get that experience without getting a job. So what do they do? The primary benefit of working with a company like C.R. England is that we provide both the training and experience drivers need. All we ask in return is that drivers commit to working for us for a limited amount of time. After that, they are free to go elsewhere though most stay with us because they enjoy working for C.R. England.
Paying for Training
If you are already licensed, the question of who trained you has already been settled. However, what if you are looking for a CDL job even though you have no license. Once again, a company such as C.R. England may be your best bet. We partner with Premier Truck Driving Schools to provide industry-leading training and guaranteed employment upon graduation as long as you meet the required hiring criteria. Premier offers affordable training with several financing options to choose from.
Different Kinds of Work
The trucking industry is one that offers many different options in terms of the types of work available. For example, C.R. England primarily handles refrigerated services, also known in the industry as 'reefer' trucking. Other options include flatbed hauling and dry goods vans. Each type of work pays differently, depending on the responsibilities involved.
Home Time
Home time is important to over-the-road truckers who may end up traveling thousands of miles in a given week. While there are regional routes with more frequent home time, these are usually given to the experienced truckers who have put in their time over-the-road. As a new trucker, you should realistically plan for a lot of time away from home until you accumulate a significant number of miles.
Equipment Standards
Where independent contractors have to choose between purchasing and leasing their equipment, company drivers need to be concerned about the equipment policies of potential employers. Using ourselves as an example once again, C.R. England provides every driver with a tractor and our equipment is some of the newest in the industry. We are also committed to making sure our equipment is maintained to the highest standards possible. We are known throughout the industry for having some of the best equipment around.
The trucking industry is in need of committed drivers to fill all sorts of CDL jobs in Utah, Pennsylvania and across the United States. We encourage you to consider professional driving if you are a young person just embarking on your career, or you are an older worker looking to try something new. Truck driving is a career offering an excellent stability along with good wages and benefits. Best of all, drivers have the opportunity to see this great country and meet all sorts of interesting people.
