Local Truck Driving Jobs

Truck Drivers, that phrase generally conjures up images of long haul over the road truck drivers.

Over the Road truck driving jobs have the mystique of traveling but they come with some really irritating quirks, not the least of which is you often don't paid squat for unloading time. Driving is great, you usually get paid by the mile, if there's not too much traffic congestion, you can earn decent money. BUT... and this is a big but: What if you have to wait to get unloaded?

Over the Road pay per mile is pay for driving, not unloading... you gotta get back to where you came from and the trailer's don't unload themselves! Truck drivers that get paid by the mile are NOT being paid by the hour, what if it takes 6 or 7 hours to get the trailer empty?

That's why I preferred local truck driving jobs, I like getting paid by the hour and getting overtime!
So you're looking for a truck driving job? What kinds of jobs do you look for?

Your pay is going to have a lot to do with how lucrative the cargo you're hauling is, or how bad consumers need what ever it is you're hauling. The economic boom is gone, we're in a post bubble era, industries that once were lucrative are loosing ground and the lucrative loads are getting fewer and farther between.

Trash goes every day regardless of the economy, Food goes every day, people gotta eat!
