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.
I'm on a dedicated account hauling cabinets out of Ferdinand, Indiana. I have a guaranteed salary of $1,100/wk (I usually make at least $1,400). I pick up preloaded trailers and make multiple stops along the way. It's 50 cpm plus $25 per stop. When I get unloaded I head back to the plant to get another load. Sometimes I get a backhaul. Sometimes not. Either way I get 50 cpm. Loaded AND empty. Very fair company to work for. If I need something I simply make a phone call and I get it. On the downside, JB trucks are small. No APU. No inverter. Passenger seat is a solid mounted "jump seat" with no adjustment. JB Hunt is a huge company with many different accounts including, but not limited to, intermodal, family dollar, masterbrand (cabinets), flatbed, dry van, local, etc. they also allow you to transfer to other accounts if there's an opening.
Guaranteed weekly salary. Well maintained, late model equipment. 24/7 support. Always preplanned-never wait for loads.
Short wheelbase tractors with small sleepers. No APU. No inverter.
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.
