What to expect in a New Jersey truck-driving job

New Jersey Truck driving job will increase over the next decade as the demand also grows for transported goods as our economy boosts. 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. Larger companies also provide drivers with the flexibility 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. Truck driving jobs offer great benefits for not only yourself but also your family such as: 401K, paid vacations, great insurance, and a high level of job freedom.

Take note that the background checks can be very time consuming. Previous employment must be verified along with your driving record from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. On top of that, 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. Keep in mind that all of these things could take a few weeks from the day you apply until you are offered a New Jersey driving job.
