Trucking Jobs in Cincinnati

Cincinnati, Ohio has several major industries that need trained CDL drivers to keep their business moving. Companies that specialize in manufacturing, government services, food, commercial shipping, and other types of activity are currently hiring drivers and diesel mechanics.

Companies want to keep their drivers happy to avoid the expense of turnover. That's why drivers can often compete for jobs that offer 401K, paid time off, competitive rates per mile, and routes that are preferable to drivers who have families and want to sleep in the comfort of their own beds.

Companies such as Transport America, Celadon, Nusbaum, and JB Hunt need drivers for local, regional, team driving, OTR, and other types of positions. Some of these companies may guarantee pay, even if the miles don't add up to the rates usually used for calculating pay. New hires can often negotiate guaranteed annual wage increases for the first few years they are employed.

Driving in Cincinnati

Of course, if you live and work within the city, you'll become familiar with the traffic that is heavily dependent on cars, since public transportation isn't the best in the city.
