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.
Good, well-run company. They keep you busy, and have a lot of big, dependable shipping customers who will send you all over the eastern U.S. (usually not including congested urban areas. . . but sometimes). I started with them in November 2016 as a new driver out of driver school. Everything has been great. Orientation was well-organized and helpful; they put me up at a really nice resort hotel for the week. The driver-services staff I met were super nice and helpful. Training was fine; normally this is four weeks with an experienced driver, who teaches you some of the ropes. The equipment is phenomenal; after just a month or two they put me into a brand new Volvo, where I took the plastic wrap off the seats. Maintenance department is top-notch. They have good terminals in Superior, WI and in the Minneapolis area. There's another in South Bend, IN that I haven't seen. My driver manager and the dispatching department are extremely skillful. I almost always have the next load assigned to me before I finish the last one. Almost all communication is electronically, through the Qualcomm system or email, which I love. My only complaint is with the pay. My recruiter dangled $.41 per mile in front of me as if that were the normal pay rate. It turns out that $.41 is the max that you can earn if everything goes right. Your base is $.32. To get to $.41 you would have to work your ass off (six days a week, 14 hours a day, or consistently get the juicy west-coast runs), have absolutely no incidents involving damage to equipment or other remediation, have no violations, and buy fuel only when and where they tell you to. The bottom line is that I'll make about $40K this year instead of $55. I'm so new to this industry that I don't know if that is good, average or bad. . . but I was sort of planning on the higher number.
Very well-run company, nice people, great equipment.
Pay is on the low side (I think).
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.
