How do you dress for a truck driving interview.

Old School's Comment

Baggy sweat pants, flip flops on your feet, a dirty Tee-shirt that's too tight and so short that a little bit of your belly shows as it's hanging out the bottom! That appears to be the average truck driver uniform! smile.gif Welcome aboard Quality 1... Seriously, and forgive my levity, I would dress in neat clean casual attire. Good luck at DOT foods - you can make some serious money with that job, but it is very physical, with long hours and an extra early start to each day.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

How do you dress for a truck driving interview.

If it's an in-person interview, I'd wear a button shirt, good Levi's or such. No preppies drive truck, and if you wear a tie, you'll make the recruiter laugh!

If it's on the phone, just wear underwear, it's more comfortable.

Good luck with that interview!

A ball cap that you've worn every day for five years without ever washing it will complete the ensemble. (Bonus points if it's a cap stitched with the name of a casino, Peterbilt, or Tractor Supply Company.)
