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.
Pretty good company as perhaps a stepping stone from Company driver to full on owner. Its kind of hard to fail here as a lease op unless you aren't business minded. Truck lease designed to be paid off in 5 years running average miles. 0 Balloon. They WILL try to tempt you to upgrade so you keep "renting". It works for some. Truck payments based on mileage driven. So 0 miles a week for me comes out to a -320ish settlement. Even on my worst weeks or weeks after hometime I still have a positive net settlement. My DM leaves me alone for the most part. I can sometimes go a couple weeks without hearing from him directly unless he needs a favor for a swap or if he has something that will work out in my favor. He knows how I like to run and keeps me moving. Over 150K miles in one year as a solo. Some aspects are micromanaged, like the 2 check messages a day, on top of the day before delivery day message to ensure you're on time. Other than that my current "Outbox" messages on my QC are all just check messages, and load pickup and delivery messages. Other drivers here that don't care are the biggest downside. You end up with equipment that is damaged/not road legal, reefers unfueled and unwashed, with reefer issues. And management doesent want to come down too hard on them for some reason. Gets annoying having to make your next stop after trailer pickup be a shop or a washout.
Good miles if you want them, decent equipment, trailers are being re-freshed, open door policy at the terminal.
Drivers that don't care, LOUD reefers, lots of Wamart and Tyson so lots of waiting on loading and unloading. Limited drop and hook.
The equipment is fine. I got a brand new automatic Freightliner after just a few months with the company. I was disappointed to leave the manual at first, but the new trucks have inverters which helped ease my pain. Shop personnel, as well as much of the office staff, is very hit or miss. Either you find someone who is good at what they do, or not; it's as if Swift has found a way to eliminate the middle of the road. Some people are really pleasant to deal with, while others seem to hate their job and you by extension. Sadly, the nicest ones aren't always great at their job, and some of the grouches are good and efficient -- you just never want to ask for their help again. C'est la vie. I've come up with a saying; if you ask any two people at Swift the same question and get the same answer, then you can be 100% certain that it's wrong. Not to worry, though, because it doesn't happen very often. I guess it's about like any large company where you have a good number of people who do their best every day, and then others who try to get by doing as little as possible to get a check, except the normal balance is a bit tipped towards the check grabbers. My main complaint is that I've been away from home 3-4 months at a time, and I am just not getting enough miles to make money. I fall an average of $200 short of my bills every week. I've mentioned it to my driver leader several times, but he doesn't seem to care. So, I plan to leave Swift as soon as my loan is paid.
☞ Terminals all over the place where you can do laundry on the cheap. ☞ There are lots of more experienced drivers willing to take the time to explain things. ☞ Upper management seems to be aware of many of the problems and are working on solutions.
☞ Every terminal is its own little kingdom with few standardized practices among them. ☞ Training could be a lot better, particularly the mentorship portion; to some of the owner operators, you're nothing but slave labor to fatten their wallets. ☞ Your success or failure seems to have a lot to do with the luck of the draw; if you get a good mentor and a good manager, then you have a leg up, and vice versa.
