Current Trucker Job Openings
|The call of the
wide open road--itís the number one thing truckers mention when asked
what made them decide to pursue their trucking job. Whether the
truckers chose local jobs or jobs that would take them across the country
on a long haul, for the majority, the freedom of the open road is the
many trucking jobs, the trucker works for a company that manages a fleet
of trucks and the cargo they haul. But with some trucking jobs, the
trucker owns the truck (owner/operator) and has to set up his own local or
long haul shipping jobs. There are benefits and draw backs of each, but
both trucker jobs provide the trucker the freedom of the open road.
Local trucking jobs are perfect for truckers that have a family. Local hauls keep the driver close to his home town, allowing the driver to be home every weekend or maybe even home with his family every night. A lot of short-distance delivery truck jobs fall into this category. Thereís a definite draw to local trucking jobs; they provide the freedom of the open road, but allow the trucker to have a job that lets him get home to his family every night.
For many drivers, however, the long haul is the ultimate trucking job. In this type of trucker job, the trucker can be transporting loads from one corner of the country to another, then hauling another load back again. Thereís nothing that compares to taking a long haul cross country. The sights you see, the other truckers you meet on the job and stopping at rest stops, and the freedom of the open road.
Trucking jobs provide a one-of-a-kind experience. And truckers who share in this job experience form a brotherhood, and even have their own lingo as truckers on the job talk to each other over CB radios.
