“Trucking added the most jobs of any transportation sector in 2013; demand expected to grow by 21% through 2020”
We are focusing on new Barber Trucking drivers who are independent workers that can take instruction and take on responsibility. They thrive in an environment where they have the power the set their own pace. They prioritize their home time, time on the road, financial earnings, and their ultimately their career in the way that works best for them as an individual and primary family provider. If you’re a military member or veteran, that’s why you’re ideal candidates for the job.
Truck driving is one of the few careers can train quickly to earn $40-50k. By year 3, a driver could be making into $50,000s
Barber prides themselves on offering competitive rates for drivers to make a sustainable income and provide for their families. We are also up front about the earning potential within the company, and we will never trick drivers with signing bonuses that have strings attached, or cents per mile that only applies when trucks are loaded.
“Working conditions have improved, trucks are more comfortable and well equipped”
We make sure our drivers adhere to and never exceed DOT regulations when it comes to distance traveled and time on the road. That’s because our number one concern when delivering a load is that it is delivered safely. That’s why we give you all of the equipment necessary to do so. We also believe that drivers should feel at home in their trucks so they remain able to focus. That’s why all of our trucks feature no idle HVAC unit and have bunks.
“Turnover is lower at smaller carriers; due to their family atmosphere”
Company hopping is a common occurrence in the trucking industry, but we do our best to avoid it by showing each and every driver how much we value them as a team member. With us, no one is ever a number, safe and on time delivery is rewarded, and drivers have the opportunity for advancement. We do our best to retain drivers, because they are a second family to us.
