In our last article, we discussed three reasons why you should consider looking for a truck driving job at a smaller or mid-size company, including pay and recognition. Here are four other reasons why you should consider doing this!

More flexible hours

If better pay and benefits aren’t that important to you, consider that smaller trucking companies can offer better hours. First, because they have fewer employees, they will know you better and respect your time more than a major corporation. Second, smaller more family-focused companies understand that home time is important for employee wellbeing and productivity.

Better workloads and more options

Large trucking companies may have more drivers, but they often won’t hire owner-operators. Smaller trucking companies sometimes need to do this to keep up with demand. Having fewer drivers also allows for more friendly competition, which can incentivize you to do the best you can every month. You may also get to interact with the same customers more often, which presents a strong image of you and the business you work for.

Having more flexible options when it comes to your workload can be extremely helpful in many circumstances. If your family is growing, you may be able to take some time off. Smaller trucking companies likely understand that emergencies happen more than a larger company would, too.

A more friendly working environment

Not only will your employer know you better, but you will also be able to get to know your peers and managers better. Smaller trucking companies often have birthday parties, company get-togethers, and other types of events where you can hang out with your coworkers.

You can make an impact on your community (and others)

When you are looking for a truck driving job, this may not be something you even think about. But, when you work for a small or or mid-size company, you are helping your local economy and community! They, in turn, help the economies of their clients. That means that you can make a difference in people’s lives instead of just feeling like a number.
