Arlington Truck Driving Jobs Overview

Roaring down the open roads—the highway-tendons crossing the nation—truck drivers keep the pace, assert control, and skillfully transport various goods. That sense of freedom and the thrill of driving a mammoth-vehicle are major pulls for those drawn to truck-driving jobs—an expression of grace through heavy machinery. Are you big on mechanical know-how, and can you maintain focus for extended periods of time? Do you have a robust work ethic, and can you be reliable for the long haul? Then truck-driving jobs may be for you.

Although many transportation companies have dispatchers providing specific routes, independent truck drivers can plan their own journeys, enjoying the challenge of figuring out what roads allow large trucks and making time for mandated rest periods. Tasks you can expect to perform as a truck driver include loading, unloading, and recording cargo deliveries; refueling and cleaning your vehicle; and keeping your dispatcher updated and reporting any incidents.
