What to expect in a Connecticut truck driver job:

Truck driving jobs will increase in demand over the next decade as the demand grows for transported goods as our economy boosts. The average salary for company driving jobs in Connecticut 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. While working for a large 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 desires to go over-the-road; that driver just needs to apply for the position, no need for getting a Connecticut driving job elsewhere. Connecticut 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.

While researching truck driving jobs in Connecticut, 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.

What to expect in 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, 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.
