We’re Known for Prioritizing Our People
Many transportation companies overwork their drivers in an attempt to boost their profits. We’re different. We understand that adequate time off, clear communication, and opportunities for career advancement aren’t just good for our employees. These things are also good for our reputation, our efficiency, and ultimately our bottom line.
Our drivers are at the heart of what we do. We know how important your work is to our success as a business and our reputation with our customers. That’s why we offer our drivers full-time hours and always make sure they’re paid well for their hard work. Not only do we offer above-average hourly wages, but we also pay time and a half for overtime and have a quarterly bonus program for all employees.
Full Benefits Package
At Bridgetown Trucking, we give back to our amazing and dedicated workforce by providing a great benefits package to help them take care of their health and their families. Our benefits include:
- Time and a half after 40 hours each week
- Medical and Vision after 60 days of employment, with 3 different options to choose from
- 401K with company match
- $20,000 Life Insurance after 60 days employment
- Vacation available after 90 days of employment, which begins accruing immediately
Training & Career Development Opportunities
Our current average tenure for employees is upwards of 5 years, which is a good indicator that Bridgetown Trucking is a great place to work. We have below-average turnover because we’re loyal to our drivers and all our other employees. We offer opportunities for training, skill development, and career advancement. We love seeing our existing employees and prospective hires with a desire to learn new skills and obtain new qualifications, and we’re invested in your career.
For example, we’re willing to work with drivers and help them obtain their CDL. That means you can drive a non-CDL truck for us while you go through the process of taking your written permit test for a Class A license. Once you’ve driven for us for at least a year and you’ve obtained your permit, we’ll get started on-road training and help you gain the skills you need to get your CDL.
You’ll Work With Reliable, Updated Trucks & Equipment
We provide our employees with modern, dependable, top-of-the-line equipment. Our trucks are rented or leased by a trusted third party. They are all current models and are continuously updated by the dealer. This means that no matter what, you’ll be working with pristine, cutting-edge machinery.
We Offer Vacation & Preparation Pay
We value your time and labor and we believe that any work should be paid work. That’s why we consider preparation time to be working time even before you’ve officially taken your position. From pre-drug screening to filling out the application and medical card (if needed), you’ll be compensated for any time you spend preparing to join our team.
Trucking careers are often known for being taxing, with long hours and extensive time away from your family. At Bridgetown, we value hard work, but we also know that the key to a productive and effective team is to keep the well-being of our employees at the forefront. That’s why we offer 6 paid holidays a year so that you don’t have to sacrifice precious time with your loved ones.
