What we Look for in a Great Driver

Here at Triangle-J, Inc, we are always looking to add new team members to our trucking crew. Could our next great hire be you? It’s very possible! First, let us tell you a little about ourselves. Through our three different styles of trucks: day cab for local hauling, midroof cabs for regional hauling, and big sleeper trucks for our over the road hauling, we are set up to haul almost any type of product. Our drivers regularly work on a variety of trailers such as flatbed, extendable flatbeds, refrigerated or temperature controlled trailers, and even hopper bottom trailers. We even have boom trailers! Are you interested? As a driver for Triangle-J, Inc you will haul on a regular basis products like concrete utility poles, drainage pipes, various types of building products, wood poles, structural steel, bridge beams, machinery, fresh and frozen meats, grocery products, produce, and a variety of farm products such as fertilizer, grains and grain products, feed and ingredients. As you can see, through our diversified trucking operation, we can handle almost any anything. Are you excited now? Let’s keep going and tell you what we are looking for out of you!   #1 Education and Licensing. No secondary education is needed to become a truck driver, though a high school diploma is preferred. Completion of a training course at an accredited truck driving school is helpful. To be hired, you must first obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). #2 Physical Condition. Being a truck driver is actually very physically demanding. You must have excellent hearing and vision, and be in good enough physical condition for a particular job that requires loading and unloading freight. You must have the ability to sit for long periods of time and adapt to changes in driving conditions. #3 The Right Attitude. All new hires will need to pass a drug test, as driving under the influence is extremely dangerous, as well as illegal. Beyond staying sober, we like our team members to possess good communication with us and the customers, plus have solid customer service experience, and better-than-average judgment skills. This is a great job, and we want you to be happy doing it every day!
