What is an OTR truck driving job?
In the trucking industry, almost every new driver begins their career as an OTR, or over-the-road, truck driver. Driver Solutions has created a network of trucking companies, some of the most premiere OTR trucking fleets in the country, to provide the best CDL training in the trucking industry. As a driver for one of these companies, you won’t have the typical ‘9 to 5’ job, and you won’t get paid by the hour. You’ll work on your own schedule and get paid by the mile, which is much better for you!
As a new OTR truck driver, you’ll be driving to different places every day. This is called an irregular route, and it means you’ll go anywhere and everywhere. You’ll see the country, enjoy the freedom of the open road, and get a lot of time behind the wheel, which means you’ll make more money! And remember, you are important to your employer, so they’ll work with you to get you time off when you need it.
Your first year as an over-the-road driver is very important to your new professional truck driving career. You’ll learn a lot about the trucking industry and become skilled at all aspects of truck driving. Most importantly, you’ll be getting the experience you need to build your career as a professional truck driver.
