When looking for work, there are multiple fields that offer immediate openings and training. One such position can come from a towing company looking to hire new drivers. Understanding the basic requirements can land you a position in the field with plenty of room to learn and grow.
The requirements for operators may vary from company to company. Some of the main things that are consistent with each position are the ability to pass a drug test, have a clean driving record, and being able to pass a background check. Tow truck operators often work with law enforcement for breakdowns and accidents on major roadways, so these are essential when hiring new staff.
It is also important to note that the training is very hands-on. Most people will shadow a current operator to be able to understand how the job is done. It is important to make the most of this time while with them because the operators have the knowledge and experience of working in the field. You would be surprised at the hurdles they have had to overcome and their ability to adapt to changes.
