Truck Driving Jobs in Oregon

Truck driving jobs in Oregon are very rewarding, compensated fairly and offer many chances to see Oregon’s natural beauty. While searching for a truck driving job in Oregon keep in mind the chances to visit Crater Lake National Park, Multnomah Falls, the Rogue River, and many more! Truck driving companies across the nation are always looking for dry van, dry bulk, and reefer drivers; no matter how bad the economy gets there will always be loads that need to be delivered.

What to expect in an Oregon truck-driving job

Truck driving jobs in Oregon 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 Oregon driving job.

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 Oregon, 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.
