Truck Driving Jobs in North Carolina

Truck driving jobs in North Carolina are growing as the state tends to become one the favorite places for drivers to drive through. North Carolina has been going through a transformation over the last decade and my drivers consider it a favorite. While looking for truck driving jobs in North Carolina keep in mind being able to visit places such as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Chimney Rock State Park to name a few! Trucking companies across the country are constantly seeking drivers 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 North Carolina truck-driving job

Be aware 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. Additionally, each company you have worked for needs to provide a DOT report from either human resources or the safety department. Companies seeking to hire drivers in North Carolina also need to be aware that they will most likely have to undergo a physical exam prior to driving. Take note that all of these things could take a few weeks from the day you apply until you are offered a North Carolina driver job.

Truck driving jobs in NC 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. The salary of a company driver 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.

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 in North Carolina, 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.
