Wisconsin Trucking Company Service One Transportation Provides a Stable, Long-Term Career Path, Excellent Pay and Full Benefits for Truck Drivers With a Class A CDL
PLYMOUTH, Wis., July 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The U.S. trucking industry was short 38,000 drivers in 2014; by 2024, analysts project that shortage could be as high as 174,500(1)—resulting in strong employment growth, rising pay and job security for qualified drivers. Service One Transportation, a leading Wisconsin trucking and logistics company, is currently hiring drivers with a Class A commercial driver’s license (CDL) and encourages job seekers to consider the advantages of a trucking career.
According to an American Trucking Associations (ATA) report, the industry will need to hire 890,000 new drivers in the coming decade.(1) Truck driving schools enable career changers to earn a diploma and their Class A CDL for a fraction of the cost and time it would take to earn a college degree. Program graduates who plan to pursue truck-driving jobs in Wisconsin will find their skills are in high demand, as the state’s Department of Workforce Development (DWD) projects 13.2% employment growth from 2014 to 2024, with 1,574 job openings per year.(2)
While DWD data indicates Wisconsin truck drivers can expect an entry-level salary of $32,093 and a median wage of $41,904,(2) truck drivers at Service One earn $55,000 to $65,000 per year. “We recognize the worth of good drivers, which is why we offer an excellent salary and full benefits, including medical and life insurance, a company-match 401(k) program and performance bonuses,” explained Dan Flagstad, Jr., President of Service One Transportation. “We treat our team like family, and we aim to provide them with a lucrative career path that offers long-term stability and the tools and support they need to succeed.”
In addition to hiring experienced drivers, Service One offers a finishing program for new and student truck drivers. Brad Schmitz is one such hire who joined Service One after meeting Flagstad at a job fair. “I knew almost immediately that Service One was where I wanted to work, as Dan really listened to what I had to say and was receptive to where I wanted to take my career,” he noted. “As a driver, I was given a great deal of responsibility, which led to a sense of accomplishment and success. Dan and his VP, Mike Myszewski, have established a culture that puts drivers first and really allows them to build a career with the company. I recently moved into a new role as dispatcher, and I feel I have a bright future ahead of me at Service One.”
Dock Lead Chris Wals is also confident he made the right career choice: “I have been with Service One for almost eight years, and since the day I started, I have always felt valued here. I enjoy my work, and I appreciate the trust management places in me as well as their openness to my suggestions. Though life can get extremely hectic at times, Service One has always been understanding and accommodating of my needs both at work and at home. I truly think of Service One as my second family.”
Service One invites experienced and new drivers to apply for open positions. For career changers seeking a driving school in Wisconsin, Flagstad recommends the truck driving diploma program at Fox Valley Technical College, which is certified by the Professional Truck Drivers Institute (PTDI). Recent and soon-to-be graduates from accredited driving schools may qualify for tuition reimbursement from Service One.
