The demand for truck drivers is at an all time high, and this trend is expected to continue well into the next two decades. First year drivers usually, according to the Labor Department usually earn 42,000+ and $60,000+ by year 3. However, recently CNN found that there is such an enormous demand for professional truck drivers, over 50,000 more drivers are needed, that salaries now have soared to $73,000/year range, especially those hired by private fleets. Some articles about truck driver salaries showed even higher numbers. One article showed several companies paying $82,000/year.
Full benefits are also offered by most of the mid-size to large trucking companies. These companies often will reimburse students for tuition (see job placement). Further, since there is a driver shortage, bonuses are often part of the deal as well.
