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 am a 'system' driver living 200 miles from my home terminal so I knew going in that I would be out two weeks at a time. There was no sugar coating it. In fact, when I mentioned I lived close to a major interstate and could probably get by the house a little more often, the recruiter said probably not. No one tells you what you want to hear, just what you need to hear. But they get you home when promised and pay you the out-of-route miles when you do go home. The pay is very good for this industry and the benefits, while not the greatest, sure aren't the worse either. I am on track to make 75-80,000 dollars this, my first full calendar year. Some of the equipment is older, especially the trailer fleet, but tank trailers are very expensive so a company will run them as long as safely possible. I have never had a trailer issue on the road other than a couple tires and my tractor went down one time due to the DEF system sensor- and I have had a truck with less than 25,000 miles go down for that.
Good mileage pay (50 cpm to start), 98% drop and hook for a clean trailer for next load, $20 an hour for detention after 2 hours and the same for breakdown pay, steady work- no sitting (and if you do end up sitting there's $100 for hold-over pay)
Not much here. Some older trailers and you'll start in an older (3-4 yr. old truck). I started 1 1/2 years ago and will be in line for a new truck in the spring of 2018. If you do have to use a spare truck while yours gets worked on it will not be the best but at least you can keep working.
DMT is a small flatbed company of 120 or so trucks. They recently sold 75% to P&S. The trucks I saw were older, with 500,000 miles or more, but well maintained. The owner is hands-on and works every day, sometimes on the road. Everyone in the office is really nice and accommodating. Most drivers get home on the weekend, usually loaded with a Monday delivery appointment. This would be a great home for an experienced flatbed driver living in the Southeast. I recommend starting flatbed with a big company like Melton or TMC, where you can learn the basics in a classroom and warehouse, in a comprehensive way. Me? Back to reefer!
68 mph. New trucks are on the way. Small family company and I felt welcome and at home from day one. Sign on bonus. Home most weekends.
Training for inexperienced flatbed drivers is marginal. Seemed like there was no plan. Just winging it. I have 12 years OTR driving experience. I was treated like a child by my trainer, who was 10 years my junior. I told the recruiter that I don't smoke, and would not train with a smoker. My trainer was a smoker. The first week was long and difficult but a success, I thought. The second week the trainer became more and more frustrated and impatient with me. We only stopped to eat once a day.
