What to expect in a Texas truck-driving jobs

Truck driving jobs in Texas 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. While working for a large truck driving company you may also be given the flexibility to switch the type of driving run, if desired. For example, if a driver has been doing local runs for a few years but desires to go over-the-road; that driver just needs to apply for the position, no need for getting a company driving job elsewhere. Truck driving jobs in Texas 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.

However, stay conscious 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 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. All of these things could take a few weeks from the day you apply until you are offered a Texas driver 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
