Companies Join Forces To Create Jobs In Local Illinois Market
USA Truck a leading transportation and logistics provider has partnered with 160 Driving Academy of Crest Hill IL to create hundreds of truck driving jobs in targeted local markets throughout the state of Illinois.
Steve Brantley Manager of Driver Recruiting for USA Truck said the pairing would benefit both companies as well as the local economies. With industry experts predicting more than 300000 available trucking jobs in the United States in 2014 there has never been a better time to enter the industry nor a better opportunity to receive quality training. After a four-week class at 160 Driving Academy students will be well prepared to begin a lucrative career at USA Truck.
“160 Driving Academy is a recognized leader in CDL training in Illinois” Brantley said. “USA Truck wants to develop that pool of highly qualified prospective drivers as we expand our fleet and create jobs in Illinois.”
Brantley said the intent is to recruit students to 160 Driving Academy who will then transition into over-the-road driving careers with USA Truck following completion of its four-week program. Though the program is not free for students financial assistance is available.
“USA Truck is growing and it’s a great place to launch a rewarding career” Brantley said. “We are fortunate to have a vibrant blend of elite veterans and promising up-and-comers in our driving fleet. Our connection with 160 will continue this pipeline to USA Truck.”
