My first summer working in the shop
I remember tagging along to safety meetings as a kid, washing trucks in high school and being asked by the drivers if it was punishment for something I'd done. Now I swap photos of kids and grandkids with those same folks. This place is home; I've watched my dad pour his heart & soul into this business, all on the foundation that if you work hard and treat the MCO name like it's your own, we'll take care of you. I frequently have new hires tell me they wished they'd come over to MCO years ago. We’ve built a place where our people are valued and feel good about what they do, who they work with, and how they're treated. I know there's a lot of choices out there, so thank you for considering a position with MCO Transport. I can't wait to welcome you to the family!

How do I get a TWIC?
A TWIC is issued by the TSA, and required for entry into all state ports. Since our drivers go into the ports on a daily basis, we can't offer much work until you have this in hand. Certain criminal offenses may disqualify you from obtaining a TWIC. Details and application can be found here: https://www.tsa.gov/for-industry/twic
What kind of trucks do you have?
Our fleet are primarily Volvo (70%), with a few Macks (23%) and Kenworths (7%). They're primarily day cabs, with an average age of 4 years. We have mechanics at each terminal dedicated to maintaining our rigorous preventative maintenance schedule. At this time, only 27% of our trucks are automatics, though as our 2022 orders roll in that number should increase. So, we cannot guarantee new hires an automatic assignment. In many locations though, if you have a license restriction or simply need some refresher training on driving manual, we can assist with that. We do not slip-seat, drivers will be assigned a vehicle once they complete orientation & training.
When do benefits start, and what kind are they?
Full-time employees are eligible for benefits 90 days after hire. Medical, Dental and Vision insurance is through United Healthcare. Our no-cost medical plan for employee-only coverage is a high deductible plan with health savings account, so employees can save pre-tax dollars along with the company's monthly contribution.
