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.
Tractors are near new and all automatics. Half the trailer fleet is older than you are with doors that don't want to close and landing gear that hasn't been greased since W was president. Pay is good for a starter company and dispatchers actually get you home within a couple days of your requested hometime date. We run team and average about 5000 miles a week. Watkins hauls mostly carpet, furniture, and paper products and many of the loads are terminal to terminal. I used to pull refer and this is much better. We are getting 40 CPM split now and will get 41 CPM after we have been there a year.
Great starter company, encourages initiative, lots of terminals
Pay raises after first year don't encourage retention. Ancient trailers.
3600 to 4100 miles a week in a penske daycab at .32 a mile paid weekly, direct deposit. It's a linehaul so how your day or night turns out is determined by 1 or 2 other drivers that may or may not care. All drop and hook. Most of the tractors are decent, as decent as a bare bones, steel wheeled, penske truck can be. Trailers are hit and miss. Some are rusted completely out with holes in the skin, some dog leg a foot to either side, but there are a few new ones floating around. Lots of recap tires. Home time... Yeah. I'm home enough to say I use my own toilet. Some days I get 12 hours home, some days 8 to 10 hours. 34 hour reset is done at home. Electronic logs the generic way, Big Road app on a phone bluetoothed to the truck. It works 80% of the time. Most loads are very light. I've had as little as 200lbs on a 53ft van. Apparently a lot of this place is determined by where you are located, some are better than others. I'm not at one of the better places. Employee turnover rate is higher than swifts roll over rate. I've been with them a year and I'm #7 in seniority out of 40 or so drivers from my yard... Roads iced over and the interstate is closed? Not for MLS... You're expected to run no matter what. Tired, sick, tornado, world is on fire or completely frozen... you better be in your truck running or the next sucker they recruit will be. No sick time, no vacation, just a paycheck.
You can pretty well forecast what your pay will be for the week.
You get less rest than being OTR. No one really cares about your well being. Shut up and drive attitude towards the drivers.
