Truck Driving Jobs in Colorado

Truck driving jobs will grow in demand over the next decade as the demand increases for transported goods as our economy boosts. A truck-driving job in Colorado is rewarding, well paying, and offers many chances to explore the open road and see a bunch of jaw dropping landmarks. Working as a company truck driver, you will get to experience all aspects of the truck driving job industry and see some beautiful places in Colorado. Being a company driver is also fitting for those right out of driving school because it allows you to experience a multitude of aspects in the driving industry. While looking for truck driving careers in Colorado keep in mind being able to visit Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, Denver Botanic Gardens, Rocky Mountain National Park, and many more! This is the time to test the waters and get to know all aspects of the trucking industry to see which one is right for you. Trucking companies throughout the country are always looking for dry van, dry bulk, and reefer drivers; and despite how much the economy may sink there will always be loads that must be delivered.

What to expect in a Colorado trucking job:

The average salary for a company driver 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 you desire working for a larger truck driving company you may be given the flexibility to switch the type of driving run, if need be. For example, a driver has been doing local runs for a few years but is ready to go over-the-road; that driver just needs to apply for the position, no need for researching a Colorado driving job elsewhere. Companies 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.

For truck driving jobs, be conscious 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 drivers also should be aware that they will most likely have to undergo a physical exam prior to their start date.

Benefits of a company driver career:

  • 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 in CO, 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
  • Air Brake Endorsement

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