The ideal trucking job would be just what I’m doing and to be home every weekend. I’m a dedicated driver.
I don’t think there is an ideal job. If there was an ideal trucking job, I suppose it would include quality home time, decent pay, people you can relate to and a company you can work with.
Fountain Inn, S.C.
There is no ideal trucking job. It is in the past.
D&D Double Time Express
Home every weekend, a decent salary to live comfortably, little overtime and good working hours.
I haven’t been a trucker too long. I’m pulling a tanker right now, which is good because you don’t have to load or unload.
For me personally, light loads and dropping hooks, which means continuous movement. Staying on the big road is my ideal job.
Ideal job would be where I could be home more often. Also, more money would be nice for the drivers and me.
Big Lake Transport
Mill Spring, Mo.
It would be not to be pushed so hard and to bring the pay rate up. I would like to drive 10 hours and take eight off.
My ideal job would be doing the same thing I do every day. I enjoy my job.
My ideal job would be about the same as what I’m doing now, driving around, making money. I would love to own my own fleet one of these days.
The ideal job would be to see the country while earning a living at the same time.
For me it would be hauling stock cars. I like running from east to west.
My ideal job would be going in to work at 8 a.m. and coming home at 5 p.m.
The item that means the most for me is home time. Also, more money and benefits wouldn’t hurt.
