Benefits of Being a Truck Driver
Driving truck isn't all lonely roads and empty diners. While there is a certain amount of isolation in truck driving, there are many benefits for those who choose to drive.
For as long as there have been motorized vehicles, there have been trucks hauling goods. Good drivers will drive for as long as they can, and job security is virtually guaranteed for those who drive well, and drive safely.
On top of high job security, being a truck driver pays well. We understand that money isn't everything, but the ability to take care of your family while doing something you love and enjoy is always a good thing.
When driving truck for a company, oftentimes you will be compensated in the form of employee benefits. Things like medical and dental coverage, RRSP and pension plans, and life insurance are often included in those benefits packages!
