Truck Driving Jobs in Pennsylvania

Truck driving jobs in Pennsylvania are a great way to make a great income while checking out some of the keystone state’s most beautiful attractions. While searching for a truck-driving job in Pennsylvania keep in mind the chances to visit Hershey Park, Longwood Gardens, the Liberty Bell Center, and many more! Truck driving companies across the nation are vigorously searching 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 a Pennsylvania 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 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 Pennsylvania driver job.

Truck driving jobs in Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania, 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.
