    Looking into making a career change into trucking. Due to health issues my wife and son have, it is imperative we have health insurance benefits ASAP. We can't wait 60-90 days after starting for them to kick in. Looking to compile a list of companies (mega carriers, small carriers and anywhere inbetween) that you know benefits begin from day one. TIA!!

    Look into the Healthcare exchange. Open enrollment starts soon if it hasn't already. It sounds like you may be a good candidate. Your Truck Driving income will be well below the income threshold to qualify. In the long run, it will probably be cheaper to stay on the exchange. Dependent Coverage with ANY employer is usually quite expensive. Good luck

    Union companies have outstanding health insurance but I don't think they start on day 1. Yellow, ABF and UPS are three union companies that come to mind.

    OP doesn't even have his CDL yet. WM requires 39 months of experience.

    Are you planning to attend a trucking company cdl school or a private cdl school?

    Some companies websites don't show when health care insurance starts, so you will have to call.

    This one pays well, but you need to be in good physical condition.

    Standard waiting period with practically every employer trucking or otherwise is 60-90 days. My advice on the exchange still stands. As a new driver, OP can expect to make around 50k his first year. With 2 dependents, he will probably qualify for a huge discount on the exchange. Much cheaper than ANY Dependent coverage with ANY Employer.

    BillyBob’s Alligator Eatery has full health insurance from day one with no cost to you. Only one tiny little downfall. You’ll never use it. Don’t accept a driving job with BillyBob’s Alligator Eatery.
