    Is the posted States your hiring area? Do you hire out of MS? Asol do you hire recent grads as you state no time on the road in your post

    We have a plant in Jasper, AL which is about 62 miles from the MS state line. We would consider hiring recent CDL grads in some of our locations. The onboarding plan for inexperience (hate that word) drivers is ~12 weeks, so not all of our sites have the bandwidth to take on new graduates.

    G'day, Metal_Hauler,

    To piggyback off GreyWolf's query, I am a recent CDL A graduate student living in Nothern Virginia. Would you be able to expand upon which locations are taking on newly minted CDL A graduates for your training program? Also, are there opportunities for regional or OTR i.e. home weekly or bi-weekly? I am not interested in local or home daily positions. FWIW >> I will move in the immediate future to either FL, GA, NV, SD, TN, or TX. Thank you for your time.

    V/R

    @Old Yeller sorry for my delayed response. We do indeed have several sites hiring drivers with little to no CDL experience. Please see this posting for locations and how to apply. Regional Truck Driver Job - Flatbed at Central States Mfg

    G'day Metal,

    Thanks for the response and link to the ad. There's not much info about your employer on the web other than their website. I have applied to their location in Pennsy and will see if my application gets a bite. As a newly minted CDL A graduate, I'm looking outside the box for a potential employer than vice sucked into working for one of the 'usual suspects' that in some form or fashion has ties to most trucking schools. Thanks for posting this advertisement and for taking the time to respond to my query. FWIW >> too bad their website doesn't specify starting pay for new hires nor elaborate on their training program. They seem like a pretty good outfit to work for.

    @Old Yeller Totally valid points regarding the website's shortcomings. I will say that Central States Manufacturing first and foremost is a metal building component manufacturer and NOT a trucking company, so the website and all other marketing material over indexes on customer-facing information. We don't treat our drivers as truckers -- we treat them as Central States employee owners who deliver the stuff we make. They prefer it that way, and we prefer it that way. If we ever get to the point of treating our drivers like truckers, we've gone astray and lost one of our core focuses. I've attached one of our drivers' business cards showing we proudly proclaim them all to be employee owners/drivers.

    Just out of curiosity, what does your pet policy entail exactly? Number of pets, type of pets? Etc. also, are the trucks all day cabs or do you have sleeper trucks to do regional work? Thanks
