I just started working for Dupre Logistics in Louisiana. Check them out online at Dupre Jobs and research the company. The website lists available jobs.

This company is a needle in a haystack. Believe it or not they pay by the hour for ALL jobs! You might be wondering how they can do this just like I was and I didn't believe it at first...But the truth is that Dupre is focused on safe service that's profitable. The first word being safe and they have the awards to back it up.

It doesn't matter the job...local, regional , or OTR , they all pay hourly with OT after 40 hrs and a 40/hr guarantee weekly. Dupre only hires drivers with experience. The minimum requirement is 1 year with some tank experience where other jobs require 2 yrs TT exp with some tank exp. Because of this turnover is something like 20%.

They are looking to increase the size of their OTR tank fleet in the coming months with some new business. Give them a call if you fit the bill. Across the board salaries avg between $65K to $90K. They offer hourly rates commensurate with experience. The atmosphere is not rush rush rush...its about safety and you get paid if you are loading or unloading or waiting....Again if you are looking for a place to retire and get paid what you are worth, do some research and give them a call.

The bulk of the company business is hauling gas, chemicals and oil. Hazmat and TWIC is required for most jobs. They also haul crude oil in TX, WY, and CO. This requires some extra experience with gather and testing crude. Some training opportunities are available.

Oh and don't forget the $1500 sign on bonus. You'll get a $1000 check the day you leave orientation and $500 more the following week. They do this to bridge the gap between you leaving one job and starting another.

Elog:

Electronic Onboard Recorder

Electronic Logbook

A device which records the amount of time a vehicle has been driven. If the vehicle is not being driven, the operator will manually input whether or not he/she is on duty or not.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

I like how you dont even try to disguise this advertisement. Nothing wrong with advertising, got to get your name out there, but you should be more upfront about it.

Unfortunately I live in Kansas where most trucking outfits do not hire from . Very hard to get a job living here . I have found only a few and of course none where i live in the biggest city in Kansas . Kansas , where truckers go to die . If you do not work for a company that is located here you probably are not going to be working . well unless you want to work for the big guys no one wants to work for . will keep your ad in mind in case I decide to move .

Marcus, would you please elaborate on the meaning of this statement? And please, make a good argument, because I'm prepared to blast every point you can muster! How in the world do you think they got to be "the big guys" if no one wants to work there? If you can answer that one simple question with some degree of sensible logic I would love to hear the answer, because last time I checked no one was holding a gun to that great host of satisfied productive employees they have turning the wheels across this great land, and getting paid well for it at that.

Marcus, I've only been driving for a few years but I can tell you I've had to turn my phone off for all the job offers I get. I got lucky finding this company and can only speak about what I know as far as good pay and benefits. I did start at one of the big guys so I'm grateful for the experience they gave me. I just wanted to share since my current company is growing. I wish you well in your job search.

Nice save Brian, still portraying yourself as a driver. If you really are a driver, you should consider being a recruiter or headhunter, because I think you missed your calling!

wow am I slow at answering ! I just figured out how to find my own posts on this forum . Most just have a " watched threads " link at top . Oh well.... anyway the ones people do not want to work for are all them big guys that pay crap to new drivers who will make a couple hundred bucks a week for who knows how long minus all expenses and taxes so take home is nothing much ( must be desperate for work ) , scam them on leases and high cost driving schools that promise that big money job that never happens and even if they give up a job it is most likely crap pay and no miles and then starve them out and laugh all the way to the bank especially if they were ignorant enough to fall for that lease to buy scam that just netted big guy a almost new truck paid for by driver who now has it taken away from him due to no way to pay with no miles given and ruined credit and no home car or anything else he /she lost due to lack of income from the big guy scam artist . I do not need to mention any names like [company names removed] ..... as we all who they are . If you don't know for some reason then just simply search " bad trucking companies "

Marcus, I pulled right off the road just to respond and thank you for your help (I mean I only have waited six months for your response!) - I never knew how easy it was to find out which companies are "crap" companies. I've got to get back on the road now, but could you help me with something?

I have a friend who contacted me this morning who wants to go to work for Western Express - I'm not sure what to tell him about those guys - have you got any inside information I could share with him?

Wow, I must be super duper special. I'm new and work for one of those big companies Marcus hates so much. The funny part is, I put in an honest days work and make a pretty good wage. Granted, I have an outstanding work ethic and am the last guy you'll find in the truck stop drivers lounge or hanging out in one of the company terminals whining about how I hate my job and nobody loves me. My wheels keep turning, I'm making my bonuses and legitimately bring home 7-800 a week after taxes (btw, I'm still on training rate)

So I'm not real sure what exactly he's talking about.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
