The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) nurtures a best-in-class organization that attracts, retains, supports, and recognizes a diverse and talented workforce.

Accordingly, we promote a welcoming and inclusive work environment, with a focus on training, mentorship, and opportunities for professional and personal development. 

Our Vision is to prevent all crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.

Our Values inform how we treat one another and work together and with our partners as we strive to achieve this vision:

  • Integrity: We adhere to the highest standards of equality, integrity, and ethical behavior, to earn the respect and trust of our peers, partners, customers, and the American people. 
  • Collaboration: We work as a team, furthering our mission with the contributions of our many partners and stakeholders across the motor carrier community.

Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)

FMCSA, like all federal government agencies, is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Hiring and advancement are based on qualifications and job performance. All qualified candidates are considered for employment regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, or any other non-merit factors.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility

As the Nation’s largest employer, the Federal Government must be a model for diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, where all employees are treated with dignity and respect.  

Accordingly, FMCSA must strengthen its ability to recruit, hire, develop, promote, and retain our Nation’s talent and remove barriers to equal opportunity. We must also provide resources and opportunities to strengthen and advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility across our agency. We must build a workforce that reflects the diversity of the American people. A growing body of evidence demonstrates that diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible workplaces yield higher-performing organizations.
