Truck Driving Jobs in Iowa

Truck driving job demands will increase over the next decade as the demand also grows for transported goods as our economy boosts. Being a truck driver in Iowa is extremely rewarding, paid generously, and offers many opportunities to see the open road and beautiful landmarks. 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 fits you. While searching for truck driving jobs in Iowa keep in mind being able to visit Okoboji, Burlington and Des Moines Botanical Center! Truck companies across the nation are constantly searching 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 an Iowa truck driving job

The average salary for a company driving job in Iowa 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 an Iowa 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.

However, be aware that the background checks can be very time consuming. Previous employment needs to be verified along with your driving record from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Additionally, each company you worked for must provide a DOT report from either human resources or the safety department. Trucking 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 could take a few weeks from the day you apply until you are offered a Iowa truck driving job.

Benefits of a company 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
  • Air Brake Endorsement

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