Smith & Solomon’s Bellmawr, NJ Job Fair Provides Opportunity to Help Fulfill the Need for Drivers in the Trucking Industry

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Bellmawr, New Jersey, September 20, 2014:  It was a great turnout at Smith & Solomon’s Bellmawr Campus Job Fair this past Saturday.  From over twenty plus vendors who attended, current Smith & Solomon students, alumni and the general public looking to pursue a career in trucking, this event provided information and opportunity for everyone.

                                                                   

It was reminded that most of the companies that attended are seeking to fill many driver positions.  After speaking with representatives from each company, there has been an increase in both full-time and seasonal driver positions in comparison to last year’s hires. 

UPS who hired at an increased rate of 6% last year says they will be hiring 14-15% more drivers this year for the holiday season- this is due to the rising numbers of online shopping. 

Roehl Transport are hiring drivers immediately following their completion of the CDL program and are offering a starting salary of $40-45k to start.  Additionally, Roehl’s available positions are for dedicated major accounts such as Kraft, and drivers will be home most weekends.

Having this information made available directly by the employer to the public serves as great validation for what the demand is for commercial drivers today.  Smith & Solomon appreciates the support of their vendors, affiliates and all who attended to make this event a success.  They are adamant about holding events like this that are effective by making the surrounding communities aware of the need and potential in the trucking industry to assist with the deficit of drivers, which in turn aids the economy. 

Anyone who would like more information regarding the training programs available can find out more by visiting the Smith & Solomon Training Solutions website or by calling 1-800-622-0355.

Received my CDL training through the Bordentown, NJ location 6 years ago. Got placed with Swift upon getting license. Gave them almost 2 years, and now I am working for a local company in Cranbury. Best decision of my life! The only advice I can give to the new students, is to NEVER STOP LEARNING!! There is something new every day to learn. Just keep your eyes and ears open. Never let your guard down.

Best decision of my life!
