At Estes Express Lines - We understand that the dedication and quality of our employees are what sets us apart from other transportation providers. That’s why we strive to create a pleasant and safe work environment that gives our employees the support they need to be successful – today and tomorrow. 
Dedicated Runs - For those who like the stability and familiarity of a standard route, dedicated runs are definitely a plus. Due to our large terminal network and operational strategy, we have many opportunities for drivers who prefer consistency. 
Employee Support Line - We want to give Estes employees the information they need – when they need it.  That’s why we have a dedicated phone number designed to quickly direct them to personnel who are ready to answer their questions.  From insurance concerns to confidential, employee-related issues, our support line enables employees to reach the right person with just the touch of a button.
Exceptional Equipment - From late model tractors to new-and-improved trailers, our impressive fleet of equipment makes a difference. What’s more, we have recently embarked on a program to replace all of our sleeper units with comfortable, well-equipped units. We want to equip our drivers with the tools necessary to do their job safely and effectively.
 
Family Friendly Schedules - Spending time with family and friends is important. That’s why we have regular schedules that give our drivers the opportunity to build lives outside of work. Our over-the-road drivers are paid by the mile and, to start, are typically home two out of every seven days. We make an effort to see that, after a short period of time, our new drivers are home every other night as well.
Great Pay and Incentives - When you work at Estes, you not only get the advantage of an exceptional pay rate, you also receive free uniform shirts and have the opportunity to earn incentive pay for being a safe and productive driver. For qualified drivers, we offer advancement opportunities, Safe Driving Awards (line-haul only), Million-Mile Awards (all drivers), Safety Awards (all drivers), Safe Driving Bonuses (all drivers) and/or Claims Bonuses (eligible drivers).
