Yellow Corp. is looking to fill 1,500 commercial driver positions. In addition to direct hire opportunities, candidates looking to gain their commercial driver’s license or build their skills as a professional driver can apply to one of 12 Yellow Driving Academies across the United States.
Yellow has identified 12 locations for driving academies, including Charlotte, North Carolina; Cleveland; Denver; Fort Worth, Texas; Hagerstown, Maryland; Indianapolis; Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee; Maybrook, New York; Portland, Oregon; Pico Rivera and Tracy, California.
Classroom instruction combined with in-cab skills training is provided by Yellow’s longest serving, most experienced driving professionals, Yellow officials said in a press release.
“At a time when many Americans are looking to start a new career, Yellow is in hire mode. These are good jobs with competitive benefits in a community near you,” says Yellow Chief Executive Officer Darren Hawkins.
The company intends to open driving academies in other states this spring and is currently evaluating several locations.
