Working at PTI

We are looking for drivers who are professional, dependable, knowledgeable, and safe. Our drivers know their job and take pride in their work. As the face of PTI, drivers are our most important asset.

We value both independence as well as the ability to work with others, since each driver must develop a partnership with our customers, fellow drivers, rack personnel and those with whom they share the highways. We look for self-starters and those who do not need constant management. We want drivers who are able to spot problems before they become serious and are able to suggest ways to improve our business.

We are not interested in job hoppers. But if you are looking for a place to stay and think you are up to the challenge, then we invite you to click on the "Online Application" and fill it out.
