Company Driver Trucking Jobs
Excluding independent truckers, there are two major categories of drivers, owner operators and company drivers.
A company driver is an employee of the trucking company they drive for. A company driver can be paid by the hour, by the week or by the mile. While company drivers do not have as much control over their income as an owner operator, they are not responsible for purchasing or repairing their own truck.
If you are just starting out with a brand new CDL, company driver is generally the best option. As a company truck driver, you can get training and experience without the large investment needed to purchase your own rig. The carrier will provide you with a truck, usually a later or well maintained model, and you will not be responsible for payments, insurance or repairs.
Expenses that a company driver is respsonsible for include food, showers, phone calls and other personal type items. Some trucking companies will offer a daily allowance for such expenses, but the trucker must still pay these out of pocket and then would get reimbursed. Health insurance is an available option most of the time and after working with a carrier for some time, may be eligible for other benefits such as paid vacation time.
All of the carriers on this site are looking for company drivers to meet the increasing need for truck drivers in today's market. Many companies are currently seeking Company Drivers and Recent CDL Graduates. All Trucking Jobs matches your skills and desires with the Carriers requirements and delivers your application to the recruiter in REALTIME.
