FAQ: Dealing With Company Recruiters

Last Updated: Mar 21, 2017

Trucking Company Recruiters - Frequently Asked Questions

What do company recruiters do?

The recruiters job is to get you to join their company. Think of them as sales people. They do the preliminary leg-work to qualify drivers and get them in the door.

What's the best way to contact company recruiters?

Normally, your first method of contact with company recruiters will be over the phone. After that, much of the correspondence may be through email.

What should I ask trucking company recruiters?

You should ask them anything that you can think to ask about the company, the job, and policies. Questions To Ask Trucking Company Recruiters

Do trucking company recruiters lie to new drivers?

You may "hear" about incidents here and there, but generally, no, recruiters who blatantly lie only make their company look bad. Question anything that seems to be too good to be true, and get promises in writing, whenever possible.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
