So you’re looking for a job, and you’ve applied at several companies you like. But now what? Wouldn’t it be nice to know what’s happening with your applications and to have some sense of control?
Giving control back to you—the driver—is exactly what Tenstreet had in mind when we created Driver Pulse. The Pulse app (available for iPhone and Android) makes it easy to see the statuses of all of your applications with every carrier. You have a front-row seat to the hiring process right from your phone.
Reach Out to Your Recruiter in Real Time
With Pulse, you can do more than just check your application activity. Once you download the app and sign in, you will see a screen listing all the carriers you’ve ever applied to, the name of your recruiter, the last time you applied, and the most recent activity for each of your applications. When you enable Driver Pulse push notifications, you can even learn about changes before your recruiter.
If you click on the arrow next to your recruiter’s name, you can reach out to him or her immediately and directly from the app—either by call or text—with just the touch of a button.
Refer a Friend
Referring friends who would be perfect for a company or position is easy! Click the “Refer” button and then enter your friend’s name, phone number, and email to do them a real solid in a matter of seconds. Plus, many companies offer bonuses to drivers who refer friends who get hired! It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
Update Your Application
If you’ve changed your address or phone number or if you need to update any other information on an application, you can do so within Pulse by clicking the “Apply” button. You can also use the “Apply” button to put in a new application. All your application data will pre-populate since you’re already signed in, making it especially easy to complete full applications.
Complete a Driver Profile
Wouldn’t it be nice if trucking jobs would just come to you? Pulse can make that happen! If you complete your short driver profile in Pulse, companies can find you and match you with jobs they need to fill. The best part is that you gain popularity and recognition across the entire Tenstreet carrier market.
The Bottom Line
Driver Pulse keeps you in the loop. It helps you land a driving job faster and easier than ever before. It gives you the power to track your applications and the hiring process and to contact your recruiter. It allows you to like your favorite carriers, thus showing them a higher level of interest, and to block those you aren’t interested in so you never have to hear from them again. You can complete a driver profile to attract carriers to you, refer a friend to earn a kick-back, and even apply and update your app, all through Driver Pulse.
Plus, we’re adding new functionalities all the time to give you, even more control.

I saw it says the status of the application was updated. Does that mean I didn’t get the job?
Hi Carson, good question! As recruiters work an application, they will move it through several different statuses that represent where the application is in the recruiting process – for example, from ‘new’, to ‘processing’, to ‘ready for contact’, etc. We indicate this in Driver Pulse to let you know recruiters are actively working on your application! That’s a good thing.
I keep getting “your status has changed” notifications. But when I open the app it never says WHAT changed. There is no where to see what has changed about my status. What is the point of the Driver Pulse app if there is no accompanying messages?
Hi RC, great question. We give carriers the option to share the status of the application with their prospective drivers. Even if the carrier has chosen not to share, the app is still a powerful tool for drivers! You can create a profile to search for specific jobs that suit your interests and needs, apply to thousands of carriers within seconds, upload, store, and share your documents, retrieve free background reports, chat with your recruiter, sign documents, receive Greyhound ticket information, and more. We know it can be frustrating to not know where you stand with a specific carrier, but stay with us! We’re adding more functionality to the app all the time.
Can other companies that im dealing with see if i put applications into othee companies?
Hi Joshua, great question. The answer is no. We never share applicants’ information (including who they’ve applied to) with any other carrier.
1. How can I view only companies I’m interested in, such as tanker, flatbed, heavy haul, etc?
2. what do the companies get to see if I share my profile? Is it just what I uploaded, or is it my entire application?
Hi Clay, great questions! We never share your application or any information in it; carriers will only see that if you decide to apply with them. If you don’t, they will only see your job preferences settings (under Job Filter). You can filter carriers by going to the Search page and clicking on the Filter button. From there, select your desired equipment to haul and any other preferences, and you’re off! You can also use the Search box to enter in specific terms. Good luck in your job search!
I see that activity says 1hr ago, while my app was 1 day ago, however, I don’t see any notes or anything.
Hi James, thanks for the question! Have you tried clicking on the three bars at the top right of your screen, and selecting ‘Feed’? This will give you a detailed historical account of all of the activity on your application(s).
What is the meaning of activity status
Hi Clarke, thank you for the question! If you have an activity (or event) in Pulse stating that your status has changed, this means that the recruiter at the company you’ve applied for is processing your application, and has changed your status.
What does it mean when I get a note from driver pulse that one of the carriers I applied to changed my status? And how can I see what was changed?
Hi Doug, when you receive a note that your status has changed, that means that a recruiter is actively working your application by moving it through their recruiting process. You can see what changed by opening the Pulse app and tapping on the notification.
im trying to change my phone number on driver pulse but i dont see what it means by click apply to change it…
Hi Roger, we’d love to help you! Would you mind reaching out to [email protected] with your question? One of our team members will get right back with you.
Your app keeps freezing up on my iPhone 6s Plus I’ve reloaded it twice
Hi Cliff! Sorry to hear that – we’d love to put one our team members in touch with you. If you could, please reach out to [email protected] with details of your issue, including the version of your OS, and we’ll get right back to you. Thanks!
What does it mean when it says “declined” in a company’s section?
Hi Daisy, thanks for your question. If a company shows you in a status of ‘Declined’, it means that for whatever reason they had to pass on your application at this time. It could be for any number of reasons, and doesn’t mean no, it just means not right now. Keep searching!
Can a company see that you’ve applied for other companies and have been denied?
Hi JT, thanks for your question! No, companies do not have visibility to any your activity outside of their company.
How about a way to delete a document that was uploaded?
Hi CJ, thanks for the comment! Pulse allows you to delete any document you’ve uploaded. Once you click on a document in ‘My Documents’, you should see a red ‘Delete’ button at the bottom of the screen.
