Have you completed your active duty? Wondering what comes next after discharge from military? Use the skills you learned serving your country and transform them into a fulfilling and successful career at Oakley Transport.
Veterans are a vital part of the Oakley Family. The same hard work and dedication you learned in the military is great preparation for a career in the trucking industry. If you were a Motor Transport Operator, you’ve already got additional experience with large vehicles that puts you ahead of others.
Most military personnel are technically savvy, driven, and hard workers, and often have worked with heavy equipment. Even those who haven't worked with heavy equipment possess the grit and work ethic that many trucking companies are seeking in a Professional Driver. These are the qualities that allow veterans to promote more quickly through the company than most.
