St. Louis is well-positioned to ship goods across the country. The city is close to main trucking routes that allow for quick and easy runs to nearby states. The location – along the Illinois border – has helped Rapid Response become one of the best and most reliable family-owned transportation companies in the Midwest.
Studies show that the Midwest is an ideal location for trucking and currently – when demand for truck drivers has never been higher – it’s a great time to be a CDL truck driver.
In 2019, the trucking industry was responsible for hauling more than 70% of all freight moved in the U.S. Supply chain shortages have only increased demand for qualified truck drivers. Not only do companies need more drivers, but they are also offering more benefits and support to their drivers.
At Rapid Response, we’ve always known our drivers are the lifeblood of our business. We are looking for drivers who don’t just want a job, but a career. We are currently hiring CDL “Class A” Owner-Operators and Over-the-Road (OTR) Company Drivers in the St. Louis region.
We understand the importance of work-life balance and treat our employees like family. That’s why Rapid Response has one of the highest driver retention rates in the country. As a family-owned and operated business, we take pride in knowing our drivers and their preferences, so they are working with the clients and on the jobs they prefer.
Some of the benefits our company provides to drivers include:
- $65,000 to $250,000 based on experience
- 98% No-touch freight
- 50-50 Drop-n-Hook
- Drivers paid weekly
- Home-weekly routes available
- Through or to your home one or two times a week
- New equipment (2019-2020 Peterbilts) and Dry Van Trailers
- Cell phone allowance
- Safety bonuses
- Referral bonuses
- Layover/Extra stop pay
- Health/Dental/Life benefits for company drivers
Why Drive with Us?
Rapid Response has been shipping goods for a range of clients from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses. We have deep industry knowledge paired with high-quality support staff who treat our drivers and employees with respect.
We know how important it is to make the most out of every move. We always plan our routes so that a trip includes backhauling so our drivers always are offered available loads to return. We operate Peterbilts (2019/2020) and newer dry van utility trailers. Most of what we haul is consumer goods or packaged goods – no Hazmat material. And we book loads a week in advance, so you’ll always have work.
Growing pressure to get more goods moved across the country means that there are also more opportunities than ever for qualified drivers like you to receive great benefits and competitive pay.
Our driver requirements:
- Valid Class A driver’s license
- Safe driving record
- 2 years of verifiable experience
- Minimum 23 years of age
