Job Description for Truck Driver Heavy
Truck drivers operate trucks (many times, 18-wheelers) to deliver goods. They may own their trucks or work for a trucking company. In addition to driving, a truck driver is expected to have some working knowledge of basic mechanical skills in case the truck breaks down on the road. Truck drivers often work long hours, logging their hours in a logbook. They are required to maintain documents indicating pickup and drop-off times, as well as stops made, gas purchases, and any other important details about the trip.

Truck Driver Heavy Reviews

What is it like working as a Truck Driver Heavy?
Truck Driver Heavy in El Cajon:
"An Overall Stepping Stone Type Of Company."
Pros: This employer is very lenient to let you take days that you need off. On delivery, you definitely have more freedom than any other department. You are asked to do your job properly, if you do, there should be no grave problems.
Cons: This is a very low wage employer. In the shop, employees make minimum wage or very damn close to it. After two or three years, you can expect to make a maximum of $10 per hour, unless you've managed to become a supervisor. Not only does this company offer a very low wage, but there are basically NO benefits at all! No Medical, Dental, Vision or anything. No sick days or vacation days either!
