What’s It Like Working With a Truck Driver Placement Agency?

If you’re a truck driver, you could seek out jobs on your own, but that can sometimes be a hassle– a frustrating hassle. Thankfully, there are driver placement agencies like Platinum Drivers, a company dedicated to driver placement. A staffing agency exists to match up truck drivers with trucking companies who need truckers. The agency acts as the middleman, helping to coordinate the details of finding qualified candidates for jobs, and then handling many of the details of hiring workers who will benefit companies who need qualified workers.

Truck Driver Placement Agencies

Platinum Drivers, for instance, lists several trucking jobs, here.  You’ll notice there are jobs based out of Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Texas. There are jobs for driving box trucks, vans, flatbeds, tractor-trailers, hazmat loads, “home daily” jobs, etc. Take some time to peruse the different jobs and see what’s out there.

Hiring is a process, and not always a simple one. Agencies have many duties. They’ll review applications, interview candidates, figure out salaries and benefits, etc. Trucking companies have enough to worry about, so they like working with staffing agencies who’ll take some of the burden of finding and hiring new truck drivers off of their plate(s).

Staffing agencies may help companies hire for temporary assignments, temp to hire jobs or direct hires (permanent positions). Besides accepting applications and interviewing people, agencies might also do background checks as well. The employer makes the final decision to hire someone or not– but the agency has done good work to vet the candidates, so it’s usually easy to say, “Yes, you’re hired.” The agency then takes care of the paperwork associated with new hires.
