Careers

Like all Ergon companies, Ergon Trucking was founded on meeting needs, supporting families, and serving customers. If you are looking for a career that puts family first, join our team.

Pay and Benefits

Outstanding pay and benefits allow Ergon Trucking to attract and retain the best drivers. Drivers are paid in full for the week’s work, including demurrage time. There’s no waiting for the client to pay us. You complete the job; you get paid by direct deposit every Friday.

Ergon Trucking offers steady work for above-average pay per mile. While you might earn a comparable amount at another trucking operation, chances are you’d spend a lot more time on the road. Ergon Trucking offers competitive pay for less of your time—and at a lower cost to your family.

If you are interested in helping drive our legacy of quality service and customer support, see more of our driver benefits below, then contact one of our terminals to learn how you can join the team!
