NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah, Aug. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Utah-based Clearline Transportation is reaching out to experienced CDL drivers in the Houston area affected by Tropical Storm Harvey to offer full-time employment and help them cope financially with the devastation in that area.
In addition to offering employment, Clearline Transportation will help candidates relocate, if desired, on a temporary or permanent basis while they recover both physically and financially.
"The idea to help offer jobs to those that have lost everything, actually came from our employees," said Mason Niederhauser, the company's CFO. "I started receiving text messages and phone calls from some of our drivers offering to help or wondering if we could do something as a company." Immediately the ownership group got together and discussed various options. "We are in a unique situation where we have a lot of work available and can help people get back on their feet. Offering these good paying jobs to those who are unemployed because of this tragedy just felt right."
Niederhauser said qualified CDL drivers make over $70,000/year along with full benefits. "Because of the industrial nature of the Houston economy, we know there must be thousands of men and women with truck driving experience that are now needing to find some secure and permanent work. We can help."
Interested candidates should call 1-800-352-8002 or email [email protected] for information on how to secure employment and receive assistance in relocation.
Clearline Transportation has operations in Salt Lake City, Utah; Denver, Colorado and Champaign, Illinois.
