What to expect in a Minnesota company-driving job

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 Minnesota truck driving job.

The average salary for a company driving 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. 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 in Minnesota 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.
