We are pleased to let you know that we will go ahead with our Apprenticeship recruitment. We are just finalising the details so in the meantime, we thought we would give you some insights on what it is like to be an apprentice with Truckstops. We went to Rush, 3rd year apprentice and asked him a few questions.
How long have you been with Trustkstops?
“I started my apprenticeship with Truck Stops/SD in March 2017”
How did you find the recruitment and selection process for the apprenticeship?
“I remember back then, as I was nearing the end of my pre-trade course, and to keep my options open along with some guidance, I was applying and considering every place that was looking for an apprentice. I only knew I wanted to get into the heavy automotive side. Through some other interviews and with that experience, I found Truck Stops to be very thorough. This impression was gathered from going through the stages of the application process (nervous a little :D), the aptitude/psych test, including the phone interview, followed by in-person interviews, I still remember mine well :). The process was lengthy; however, I roughly recollect there were over a hundred applicants to start with, and today I am very happy and grateful to be here”
How has this last year been?
“Last year was challenging in many ways, gradually advancing my learning as I approached finishing my programme, and also improving and refining the skills and knowledge around the basics which were taught and learnt earlier. The learning never stops, and I enjoy that the most”
What has been a highlight so far working with Truckstops?
“The highlight for me is the support, mentoring, and encouragement I received through the years which has helped me successfully achieve my level three and level four Trade Certificates”
Any advice you would like to give to someone who is considering an apprenticeship?
“My advice, that it’s a great place and environment to start that Journey. One of my best decisions”
