TruckersReport is the fastest way to find truck driving jobs. It only takes 30 seconds to fill out an application form and receive offers from the best trucking companies. Whether you’re looking for a company that offers better pay, newer equipment, or more home time, you can upgrade your career in minutes.
Better Paying Jobs
The road to the highest paying trucking jobs isn’t always a straight line. You may start at a company that hires drivers fresh out of trucking school or provides free CDL training, but later in your career it often makes sense to seek out companies that hire experienced truckers. Switching from dry van to a more specialized category of equipment, such as flatbed, refrigerated, or tankers, will also lead to more earning opportunities. Owner Operator and Lease Purchase jobs are also an option, but they are risky.
Our job board includes filters so that drivers with specific standards can quickly finds jobs that meet their requirements, such as Hazmat, Oilfield, and military friendly employers that hire veterans. Free job posting means a steady flow of new truck driver jobs from trucking companies that don’t post on other sites.
More Home Time
OTR truck driver jobs usually pay more than local trucking jobs, but it’s tough to put a price on spending time with family. Driving regional or a dedicated lane can often mean getting home on the weekends, which is a good compromise for truckers who want to spend more time with family without limiting their earnings.
3 yrs. exp OTR, 4 in the oilfield doesn't count, but with Hazmat, $0.49 cents a mile. Run all 48 and get avg. 2450 to 2800 miles a week. Paycheck after tax, insurance, other things, $1100 to $1200 a week. Almost all D&H, 96%. There are no 5 star companies out here, but if you keep the doors shut, everyone can do this. In my opinion, if you got a family, you shouldn't be driving a truck anyway.
Dependability, money on time. Good miles if you drive the truck! Always new equipment. It's a business, so if you need someone to hold your hand, not the right job for you.
Regularly scheduled maintenance every 5000 miles, minor downtime, inconvenience, but not a real Con either. It takes a week to get into the system and rolling steady, it also takes 4-5 days to get you planned hometime. Moneywise these weeks suck, ($500 to $700) so to not stay out 3-4 weeks is not worth it.
Landstar is a company that hires owner operators. They are not there to hold your hand, but give you access to the resources available to run a profitable business if you need them. It was a step in between company driver and running my own numbers. After 2 years, I'm glad I chose them, and they offer the flexibility I need. Don't consider them if you don't know how to run a business, maintain equipment, abide by the standard industry regulations, have a bad driving record, or are looking for someone to blame for your own failures. If you have good personal skills and a desire to steer your own ship - from a solid financial stance, then they're a great fit.
Flexibilty. Freedom. Availability of multitudes of different freight. Left alone to operate if compliant.
Cut and paste pyjama agents, unregulated by Landstar. Bloated departments and staff, confusing structure. Nitpicky charges that have to be ignored, or they'll drive you nuts - basically make more revenue and they won't irritate you so much.
