If you feel like you’re stuck in a boring career, or have had enough of a desk job and are ready for something different, you’re in luck. A truck driving career may not be the first idea that pops into your head when thinking of a new career path, but maybe it should be.
An OTR trucking career is an experience full of benefits, consistent (and competitive) income, a flexible working schedule, and the ability to see the country in a way few people ever get the chance to. It’s a lifestyle unlike any other, and with the industry more in need of passionate drivers than ever before, it’s time to stop being bored with your job and embrace a new and riveting career as an over-the-road driver.
Here are some of the ways a career as an OTR truck driver can give your lifestyle the boost of adventure it needs:
A World of Possibility
Not only is the trucking industry in need of new drivers, but trucking companies are more than willing to help new drivers acquire their commercial driver’s license (CDL) and support them both on and off the road in whatever way they can.
Most trucking companies pay their drivers for each mile they travel, which means that the more miles you cover, the more money you’ll be making. And since the industry is so eager to hire more drivers, industry-wide competitive pay has become almost a staple.
Some companies, like Lily Transportation, will also offer additional income incentives via loyalty and safety programs. The bottom line is this: the trucking industry is eager and willing to reward its drivers for a job well done. Trucking may not always be easy, but when you commit to the job, the job will also commit to you.
Seeing the Sights
While there may be some career paths that allow frequent travel, few of them are as dependent on it as truck driving. Even with the long hours behind the wheel, an OTR trucking career provides its drivers with an opportunity to experience the country in a very special way.
Whether you’re driving solo or as part of an OTR team, exploring the open road is a place of adventure, opportunity, and untold beauty. If you know an office job isn’t right for you, and you’re looking for a dramatic change of scenery, then perhaps it’s time to consider getting behind the wheel. Not only is it one of the best opportunities to see the world you call home, but every day is going to look a different—both literally and figuratively.
