Truck Driver Job Descriptions

Have you been considering getting a new job that offers you more freedom and financial peace of mind? Becoming a truck driver may be right for you. It takes only a matter of weeks for you to receive your Commercial Driver License (CDL) certification. Being a truck driver doesn't necessarily mean being away from home and your family for weeks at a time. Here are descriptions of the many types of trucking jobs available:

Local drivers work in shifts, generally 8-10 hours a day, at hourly pay rates, and are home every night. Long-haul drivers will be away more often but also enjoy mileage and shift premiums. Over-the-road (OTR) truckers enjoy the ability to travel cross-continent on the job, while light and delivery truck drivers won't often leave the city they work in. No matter which of these descriptions appeals most to you, MTC Truck Driver Training can help you land the driving job you're after.
