Hot Jobs 57: Transportation Jobs

Welcome to Hot Jobs Wednesday! As you probably know by now, every Wednesday, I put the spotlight on three of the hottest job leads from the JobMonkey’s free Job Center.


Our job center is the web’s #1 free resource for job seekers in search of an adventure — and a paycheck.

This week, I am focusing on drive away jobs, which can mean anything from long-distance truck driving to local delivery jobs to mechanic work and more. You can learn more about transportation-related jobs from JobMonkey’s extensive sections on truck driving jobs and auto driveaway jobs.

1. Trailer Mechanic Job, Werner Enterprises, Omaha, NE

The Nebraska-based Werner Enterprises is seeking a trailer mechanic to repair or replace brakes, drums, hubs, seals, etc. as well as to perform miscellaneous maintenance. Applicants must have knowledge of all trailer repair systems and diagnostic skills, as well as experience in trailer body repair. The mechanic will be expected to provide all his or her own tools.

2. Driver Manager Level II, Swift Transportation, Frederick, MD

The Maryland-based Swift Transportation is seeking a manager to manage and retain a minimum fleet of 50 manned tractors. The job responsibilities will include establishing good working relationships with each driver, creating personnel schedules, performing morning and afternoon checks on trucks, performing monthly driver  reviews, managing driver performance and taking disciplinary action when necessary, and ensuring payroll for assigned drivers. The ideal candidate must have managerial experience, knowledge of the transportation industry, and the ability to work and solve problems in a high pressure environment. At least four years of past work experience — or a B.A. degree — are required as well.
