Yellow is the second-largest less-than-truckload carrier and the fifth largest transportation company in North America. Yellow’s 30,000 employees are based in all 50 states as well as Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico.
Yellow’s Maybrook hiring event is among more than two dozen similar recruiting events taking place across America between now and July. By the end of 2021, Yellow aims to hire thousands of new employees nationwide with at least 1,500 of those positions earmarked for commercial drivers.
“Seventy percent of America’s freight moves on our nation’s highways, so it’s essential that the industry continue to ramp up hiring to keep the U.S. supply chain humming along,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer of Yellow.
“Yellow pays very competitive wages and offers outstanding healthcare benefits for employees,” said Mr. Hawkins. “For those with trucking experience or not, or folks looking for a new opportunity or needing to make a job change due to pandemic fallout, it’s an exciting time to build a career and a future at Yellow.”
In addition to the May 5 recruiting day, Yellow continues to regularly sponsor its Maybrook Driver Academy, which provides classroom and road training for those interested in careers as commercial drivers.
“Hiring is our number one priority,” said Hawkins. “Our freight professionals serve as the economic lifeline to nearly every community in America. Transportation and trucking people are patriots.”
