Tyson Foods Driver Application


OTR/Regional Reefer Company Drivers

At Tyson Foods, Inc., trucking is in our blood. Our founder, John Tyson, was a trucker. He drove a truckload of Arkansas chickens from Northwest Arkansas to Chicago, Illinois, in 1935 to earn a profit of $235. John promptly bought another load of birds, at the same time founding what would eventually become a multibillion-dollar company and the world’s largest meat processor in the nation; Tyson Foods, Inc. Since then, our private fleet has grown from John’s single truck to approximately 977 company trucks and 2,159 refrigerated trailers.
