NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah – Clearline Transportation is reaching out to experienced CDL drivers in the Houston area affected by Hurricane Harvey to offer full-time employment and help them cope financially with the devastation in that area.
In a statement released August 31, the Utah-based company said it will also help candidates relocate, if desired, on a temporary or permanent basis while they recover from the storm.
“The idea to help offer jobs to those that have lost everything actually came from our employees,” said Mason Niederhauser, the company's chief financial officer. “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.”
Niederhauser said the company’s ownership group got together and discussed various options.
“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,” he said.
“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 per year along with full benefits. Clearline Transportation has operations in Salt Lake City, Denver and Champaign, Illinois.
For more information, interested candidates should call 1-800-352-8002 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
