Welcome to our Truck Driver Employment site. The purpose of this site is to provide a frequently updated list of current open positions for the truck driver. Our focus is on truck driver employment which is available in the United States.

Our list of truck driver jobs consists of a page for each state, and each page combines the results from several job search engines. Our paradigm is similar to the meta-search engines like Dogpile, except here we combine the results from job search engines as opposed to regular search engines. If you own a job search engine and you provide an RSS feed for your search result, and your RSS feed is not on our result page, contact us by going to our “About” page, and we will include your result for each page.

Here we also provide to the truck driver informative articles, useful statistics, videos, a selection of books, and current news of interest for the truck driver. The truck driver employment listed here is in the form of RSS feeds, and will be automatically updated when new jobs become available. This site is produced by IntellegoJobs, a division of Intellego Web Publishing.

Training and requirements needed for the truck driver:

Many states require a truck driver to be 18 years of age to drive within that states border. The U.S. Department of Transportation establishes basic qualifications for those who are involved in interstate commerce. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require truck drivers to be at least 21 years old, have 20/40 vision or better, good hearing, and be able to speak and read English.

You will also need to have a good driving record and you will need a commercial driving license. Many who enter this occupation attend a truck driving training school. While some of these schools vary in terms of quality, today they have become more standardized.

Many of the large trucking companies provide formal training. Other companies assign experienced drivers to train new drivers. Truck drivers with greater experience can receive higher pay and preferred routes and scheduling.

Many long-distance truck drivers go into business for themselves and purchase their own truck. In order to succeed at this way of driving a truck, you need to have good business sense and some education in the typical components of any business, such as accounting, and business mathematics. Also, to go into business for yourself as a truck driver, you need to be mechanically inclined and be able to do basic maintenance and repairs on your own truck.

For those truck drivers who desire to move into managerial positions within a company, you will need a bachelor’s degree in business, marketing, accounting, industrial relations, or economics. Since many warehousing firms use computer technology for the distribution of goods, you also need to be proficient in specific software applications used by the warehousing firm if you desire to move into a managerial position.

For more information about training required for the truck driver in the United States go to Occupational Outlook Handbook provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Job outlook for truck drivers:

Employment growth within the truck transportation and warehousing industry is dependent on the current state of the economy. When the economy is doing well, there is a greater need for truck drivers. Assuming no major down turns or up turns in the economy, the number of truck driving jobs is expected to grow around 15% between 2006 and 2016. This is considered better then average, compared to other occupations.

That being said, as of this writing, we are in a current recession and the economy is not doing well. Many truck drivers are unemployed and can expect to gain employment when the economy starts to pick back up again.
