With the challenges this spring has brought, we’d like to offer some thoughts for those looking into a career with us as a truck driver. Whether you are an experienced driver with a CDL-A, or thinking about soon going to CDL School, NTB Trucking is always looking for reliable individuals who want to work for a great company.

 

Get Going On Your Education

During a normal year, spring would be a great time to begin CDL school. This year most, if not all, schools in the Midwest are closed due to COVID-19. 

 

With that in mind, now is a good time to research schools with a plan to begin classes as soon as they open back up. Take care that you choose reputable sources to start your education.

 

You can get a head start by doing some learning using online resources, and understanding some of the skills that it takes to be a truck driver, such as how to back a tractor trailer to a loading dock and learning basic truck parts and maintenance skills you’ll need to know to pass the test. If you start studying now, achieving your CDL will be a breeze!

 

Why Drive for NTB?

We value family—your family and our NTB family. We are a regional carrier in the Midwest which allows us to guarantee our drivers the same 2 consecutive days home every week! That means they will have time at home with their family and a consistent, predictable routine.

 

While job security is a big concern for many different industries right now, moving consumable freight is an essential service in these uncertain times. Truck drivers are doing a great job keeping themselves safe and healthy by following recommended cleaning protocols, while still providing the products stores need to remain open. While other companies are laying off drivers, we are still hiring qualified drivers as the public continues to need our services. 

 

NTB Is Hiring Experienced Drivers

NTB is looking for CDL-A drivers with experience. With the increased demand from stores supplying essential goods, we can use drivers who are ready to be on the road. Experienced drivers start off at a higher pay rate, quickly helping us meet the needs of our customers. At NTB, our drivers have access to a robust benefits package, including health insurance with medical, dental, and optical options.
