What to expect in an Ohio truck-driving job

The average salary an Ohio trucking 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 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. 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

Keep in mind 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. In addition, 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 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 an Ohio truck driving job.
