Truck driver benefits
You've earned better truck driver benefits
Benefits aren’t an afterthought. They’re the difference between a mediocre compensation package and one that truly provides for your future. You want your experience and longevity to count. Look no further. You’ve found it all here, and it all adds up.
A brighter financial future
Experienced driver pay - earn more
Start with higher driver pay based on your experience. We offer many different pay packages, each valuing your experience level, where you live and the unique type of driving job you choose. Custom pay packages plus performance pay means you’re rewarded for your work, and weekly pay means you can easily manage your cash flow.
Each driver job posting describes pay, and a recruiter (800-44-PRIDE or live chat) is happy to describe more detail for a specific job.
A leading 401(k) plan with company match
Get a better job now and a better retirement later with a 401(k) plan (pre-tax, Roth post-tax or combination) consistently a step above the competition.
