What should a truck driver learn from the employer
Getting a job as a truck driver, you need to find out a few key points:
Where will you go? Usually, beginners are not sent to long-haul flights at first. They often carry out urban transportation or transport cargo in their own region, traveling short distances a day. After some time you can be sent on long-haul flights.
What kind of cargo will you mainly transport? You must understand the features of transporting these categories of goods. If it comes to dangerous and oversized cargo, then for their transportation you need to undergo special training.
Who will repair the car? This is a very important issue that you should definitely find out. As a rule, many drivers are engaged in maintenance of cars. Of course, no one will force you to repair a pump or a box, but you should be able to change the oil or replace some part.
What salary will you get? There may be used a different approach. You can pay a clear rate per month, a certain rate for each kilometer passed by the car or a certain percentage of the freight (about 10%). The last option is the most common. There should also clarify the amount of travel (daily allowance).
It is better to ask about wages last. As a rule, carriers do not like when a job seeker is asked from a threshold about the level of his earnings. It is better to take an interest in the organizationalmoments of work and evaluate the technical condition of the car, at the wheel of which you have to work. This is a very correct psychological trick that the authorities will give you. A normal carrier, if he sees that you fulfill your duties in good faith, he will raise your salary yourself.
Almost all newspapers with ads have vacancies of a “long-distance driver”, so there should be no problems with finding a job. In addition, you can find ads on the Internet on job sites or electronic bulletin boards. It is only necessary to show perseverance and perseverance.
