If you’ve applied for a truck driver position or are considering doing so, Snagajob’s here to help you prepare for a potential interview.
1. Understand the scope of the job
Truck driving is a technical job with technical requirements. Know these before going into your interview. Understand what’s required from you in order to take to the road. And research the company beforehand. You’ll learn a lot in the process and have more to talk about with the employer.
2. Practice answering truck driver interview questions
Take the questions we’ve given you and practice answering them! Recruit a family member or friend to serve as the employer. Hold a mock interview. Practice makes perfect!
3. Prepare questions of your own
Always prepare a couple of follow-up questions to ask the employer at the end of the interview. These can be about job requirements, certifications, next steps, etc. Having a few thoughtful questions goes a long way in emphasizing to an employer that you care about the position.
4. Dress professionally for the interview
Make sure to dress appropriately for your interview! Jeans and a t-shirt might be well-suited for the road, but they won’t help you nail an interview. Even if it’s virtual, you want to make a good impression on your potential employer. Professional attire goes a long way in showing an employer that you mean business!
