Millennials and the Trucking Industry

It’s back-to-school season again, and that means summer is officially ending. For some of us, our schoolwork is going to keep us busy. For others, however, back-to-school is a thing of the past! Now, it’s time to secure a job and start creating a steady income. For those people, Erb has a lot to offer.

According to Trucking HR Canada, a minor 15% of this industry is occupied by millennials, yet they fill roughly 30% of the Canadian workforce. Millennials not only bring new, innovative ideas to the workplace, they also bring fresh skills and perspective. Just as the trucking industry would benefit from their fresh ideas, they would mutually benefit from our security and stability. Joining the trucking industry after school is one of the most effective ways to ensure a secure job and steady income, yet it is one of the most underrated choices.

The trucking industry surprisingly appeals to the wants and needs of millennial workers more than originally presumed. According to Trucking HR Canada, 71% of millennials have left an employer due to a lack of leadership and professional development. Clearly, opportunity is crucial to these workers. Many employees here at Erb Transport started as drivers, and have grown into dispatchers, driver supervisors, or even terminal managers. There is a tremendous amount of growth to be filled in this industry, and especially in this company.

As a driver, you’re on the road and working independently, while also working towards common goals with your team. As an office staff member, you’re balancing teamwork and independence on a daily basis. The trucking industry offers competitive rates, job security, flexibility, et opportunity.

Although trucking is often an overlooked career choice, it is one of the best. Regardless of your age, this industry offers benefits that simply cannot be matched. If you’re ready to go on the road trip of a lifetime, give Erb a call today.
