At Estes - 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.
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.
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.
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.
