JK Moving raises annual income for CDL Drivers
With demand high for professional drivers, JK Moving Services has increased annual guaranteed income for experienced Over-the-Road Class-A CDL Drivers to a minimum $100,000.
The competitive salary and benefits are twice the national average for the position, as market demands grow and the pool of qualified candidates shrinks.
“We have a driver shortage in our country that has been exacerbated by growth in online retailing,” explained Chuck Kuhn, CEO, JK Moving Services. “Despite the difficulty in attracting drivers, we remain committed to providing a best-in-class experience for our customers and that starts with investing in having a great team.”
With the guaranteed income, JK salaries place CDL drivers among the top-25 highest paying jobs in the nation, according to Glassdoor, a leader on insights about jobs and companies. In fact, in its annual list of highest-paying jobs in America, financial planning and analysis managers ranked #25 at $94,874, below the JK pay for CDL drivers.
JK’s CDL driver pay is well above the national industry average of just over $50,000 for this position, reported by Glassdoor. The minimum guarantee also ensures drivers—who can be stationed anywhere in the nation—have steady income throughout the year.
In addition to highly competitive pay, JK has state-of-the art trucks and equipment, 24/7 live dispatch support, and great training and ongoing career development.
The company also offers a formal Wellness Program; competitive compensation; a generous safe harbor 401(k) and company-paid profit-sharing program; tuition reimbursement; paid time off; an Employee Assistance Program; comprehensive medical, dental vision, and ancillary benefit coverages; bonus incentives; and employee volunteer opportunities—including the JK Community Farm, which is supported by JK Moving and grows and donates fresh produce and protein to the area’s food insecure.
JK, along with its sister company CapRelo, employs nearly 1,100 people—a majority of whom live in the Washington, DC metropolitan region.
