Congratulations! You have earned your Class A commercial driver’s license. Now you’re eagerly searching for jobs. As anyone who is job searching will tell you, and as you may have already discovered, you’ll want to have some previous experience before you apply. This is also true for truck drivers applying with us. Learn more about why experience matters when applying for truck driving jobs with Bay and Bay Transportation in Minneapolis, MN below.
Before you apply for a truck driving job with Bay and Bay Transportation, you’ll want to have at least one year of solo on-the-road experience and a valid Class A commercial driver’s license. There are many reasons why we look for this level of experience. The most important reason is that we need to know you can safely operate your truck, both for your safety and for the safety of other drivers on the road. You will also be spending a lot of time by yourself behind the wheel. We need to know that you’re committed to your career and that you’re comfortable with long stretches of solitary activity.
In addition to having solo OTR experience, we seek out drivers who are flexible and willing to take on driving assignments anywhere in the country. Your truck driving job could take you anywhere from Grand Forks, ND to Houston, TX, or from Kansas City, MO out to Washington, D.C. The strongest candidates are willing to take on any challenge, not just local driving assignments.
Once you join our fleet, you will continue to gain experience. Eventually you will be able to join the ranks of our Million Mile Club. These drivers have safely completed one million miles or more during their truck driving careers with Bay and Bay Transportation. To reach one million miles, you would have to drive 60 miles per hour, 24/7 for two whole years. We proudly honor 14 individuals who have completed over one million miles, plus an additional 2 individuals who have completed two million miles.
