With an eye to helping ready mixed producers introduce prospective truck drivers to the industry and their own companies, the RMC Foundation has released nine-minute and two-minute recruitment videos plus 30- and 60-second radio spots. The videos can also serve as interview and onboarding resources to give candidates and new-hires an in-depth look at “A Day in the Life” of a professional mixer truck driver.
