Truck Driving Jobs in Florida

Truck driving jobs in Florida have some great benefits. They are extremely rewarding, pay generously, and offer many great opportunities to see the open road and landmarks which Florida is known for. Florida truck driving jobs will grow in demand over the next decade as the demand heightens for transported goods as our economy boosts. Being a company driver is perfect for those fresh out of driving school because you will be able to experience all aspects the truck driving job industry has to offer and see which one is best for you. While seeking truck driving jobs in Florida keep in mind being able to visit Walt Disney World, the Kennedy Space Center, and Everglades National Park! Truck companies across the country are always looking for dry van, dry bulk, and reefer drivers; no matter how bad the economy, there will always be loads that need to be delivered!

What to expect in a Florida truck driving job

The salary of a company driver job in Florida can range anywhere from $40,000 to upwards of $70,000 a year, 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. Larger companies also give drivers the freedom to switch the type of run they want to do. 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, they do not need to seek employment elsewhere.

However, 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 must provide a DOT report from either human resources or the safety department. Companies looking to hire drivers also need to be aware that they will most likely have to undergo a physical exam prior to driving. All of these things play into the fact that it could take a few weeks from the day you apply to be offered a driving job in Florida.

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.
