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.
Trainees got $0.13/mile, employees got $0.23/mile. Weekly miles vary widely for no predictable reasons. Road training is conducted principally by people with 6 months to a year of driving experience, and usually by people who got their CDL at CR England's school. Trainers (both classroom and road) turn over frequently. Drivers rarely last six months. I lasted 8 months and made it home once. My second time home, I quit. Loads are mostly refrigerated, mostly live load/live unload. When you do drop and hook, check the trailer that you pick up thoroughly; if there is anything wrong with it (most commonly out of fuel, but sometimes mechanical or electrical problems) they will expect you to babysit the trailer at ThermoKing until it is fixed. This means if you bring it into the shop on a Friday evening, you'll be there until Monday morning - they will not pay the overtime to the shop, to fix it during evening or weekend hours. DO NOT LEASE A TRUCK FROM HORIZON TO DRIVE FOR THIS COMPANY!!! They will pull your freight to make you fail your lease! They will tell you that you can drive for whoever you want with the truck, but the terms of your lease require information and services from the carrier that make it a practical impossibility to drive for anyone but CR England on their lease! In a class of over 100 people, not one completed their lease! You will not get the miles that they use to make the numbers sound attractive for a lease! The equipment will fail, and warranty or no, you still have to make the payment, whether the truck was in the shop all week or on the road! DO NOT LEASE A TRUCK FROM HORIZON TO DRIVE FOR THIS COMPANY!!!
One of a very few companies that will bring you in to get your CDL, when you don't even have a permit.
Everything. If you can get on with anybody else, do it. Get out at the first opportunity. The longer you stay, the more harm they will do you. Get your CDL and get out. Pay them the $3k for the schooling - or skip out. Don't give them any more time than you have to, even if you have to buy your way out. They are terrible, horrible people who have been sued again and again, and they just keep delaying and refiling and appealing so that they don't have to pay. Don't work for this company!
