Truck Driving Jobs in Kansas

Truck driving jobs in Kansas are extremely rewarding, pay generously, and offer many great opportunities to see the open road and 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 is best for you! While seeking truck driving jobs in Kansas keep in mind being able to visit Botanica, the Wichita Gardens, The Chalk Pyramids Monument Rocks, Tallgrass Prairie Natural Preserve, and much more! Trucking companies across the nation 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 Kansas truck driving job

The average salary for a company driving job in Kansas 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. Large truck driving companies may provide the freedom 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 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 seeking 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 driving job in Kansas.

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.
