Become A Driver

Become A Driver

The job is over the road which means that every day driver will be picking up and delivering to a different location. Dry freight only! Driving is sometimes during the day sometimes during the night. Home on weekends for Chicago area based drivers but occasionally you will be asked to stay on the road for a second week since there are situations that can’t be predicted – it’s the nature of trucking.
