Truck Driving Jobs in Arizona

Being a company driver in Arizona is the perfect job for those who are fresh out of driving school, it allows you to experience the multiple aspects of the truck driving industry to see which one is right for you and visit notable places in Arizona. Truck driving jobs in Arizona are rewarding, pay well, and present the opportunity for sightseeing. While seeking a truck driving job in Arizona keep in mind being able to tour Montezuma Castle, Havasu Falls, Sedona and the Grand Canyon just to name a few! Companies throughout the country are always looking for dry van, dry bulk, and reefer drivers; no matter how bad the economy gets there will always be loads that need to be delivered.

What to expect in an Arizona truck driving job

Truck driving jobs in Arizona will increase in demand over the next decade as the demand grows for transported goods as our economy boosts. The average salary for a company driving job is anywhere from $40,000 to $70,000 depending on the type of driving, experience, and endorsements. Company drivers, unlike owner operators, have the option to work a local, regional, or over-the-road run. If working for a larger truck driving company you may also be given the flexibility to switch the type of driving run, if desired. For example, if a driver has been doing local runs for a few years but wants to go over-the-road; that driver just needs to apply for the position, no need for seeking a company driving job elsewhere. Truck driving jobs offer great benefits for not only yourself but also your family such as: 401K, paid vacations, notable insurance, and a certain level of job freedom.

While searching for an Arizona truck driving job, be aware that the background checks can be very time consuming. Previous employment has to be verified along with your driving record from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. In addition, each company you worked for has to provide a DOT report from either human resources or the safety department. Companies looking to hire also need to be aware that they will most likely have to undergo a physical exam prior to their driving start date.

Benefits of being a truck-driver

  • You pick your route; local, regional, or over-the-road
  • Working with a company provides steady work; owner operators may have to wait on contracts
  • If there are certifications or endorsements needed, sometimes a company will pay for it
  • Being a company driver means you are eligible for bonuses
  • You are not financially responsible for repairs and maintenance to the truck

Types of Endorsements

In order to land a truck-driving job, you must begin by training to get your CDL. Truck driving training can be done in as short as 4-6 weeks. Depending on what kind of company driver job you want, you may need more than just your CDL. Here is a list of common endorsements:

  • HAZMAT (Hazardous Materials Endorsement)
  • Doubles/Triples Endorsement
  • Tanker Endorsement

Keep in mind that other certifications may be necessary to haul certain items.
