As a truck driver, you play a vital role in the local and national economy. But many people working in these jobs often believe they have to make sacrifices to forward their careers or remain financially stable. Some drivers feel stuck on long-haul routes that keep them away from home, making it harder for them to manage their personal lives. Others take less-than-ideal positions simply because it allows them to remain in their local areas. Luckily, there are other options available.
Here are just some of the advantages you can enjoy if you choose to drive with Alliance HealthCare Services.
Stay Close to Home
Almost all of our truck driving routes are local. This means you get to be home most days/nights, making it easier to manage your personal obligations, allowing you to sleep in your own bed, and spend more time with you family. You also gain access to paid time off including vacation days, floating holidays, calendar holidays and sick leave. That way you can take care of what’s important to you and your family with greater ease, as you don’t have to sacrifice your paycheck every time you need time away.
We take pride in the quality of our equipment, including our trucks. You’ll get to experience driving well maintained vehicles whenever you drive, making it easier to handle your duties without the worries often associated with poorly managed trucks. Cleanliness is also a top priority, ensuring you’ll never jump into a truck that doesn’t meet our strict standards.
Full-time truck drivers and part-time drivers who work at least 30 hours per week qualify for a wide variety of highly desirable benefits. Not only are you eligible for medical, dental and vision insurance, but also life insurance, ensuring you have a way to help protect your family. Alliance also offers truck drivers a 401(k) plan with a company matching, making it easier for you to reach your retirement goals.
Truck Driver Requirements
All Alliance truck drivers must meet necessary qualifications. Along with possessing a valid Class A CDL in your state of residence, you must also have a minimum of three years of OTR experience.
