Default Any truck driving jobs in California??

Hi all,

My wife and I are planning to move out to America within the next couple of years and we're very keen on Pasadena as my Brother and his wife already live there. We're planning on visiting them in September and I was just wondering if anybody currently living in the area know of any haulage firms worth contacting?

Many thanks

A lot of people get California and Canada confused. Post office abbreviation for California is Ca and the internet abbreviation for Canada is Ca. Chicken Lights and Chrome runs to California from Canada; he'll have the answer.

You need a visa first before any trucking firms can employ you.

I very much doubt, you'll be sponsored for a visa through a trucking company.

My brother and his wife (who is American) will be our sponsors.

Can i ask if youve already applied for the visa through your brother? if not, are you aware how long it takes to get a green card through sibling sponsorship?

As you say you're moving in a couple of years, presumably he's already applied for you? And therefore is a US citizen himself (as you only mention his wife being American above)?

Good luck.
