Regional OTR drivers stay out through the week, and then come home on Friday or Saturday for 48 hours every weekend. We service the Mid-Atlantic area mainly from North Carolina to Pennsylvania (no NYC). Drivers do pickup and delivery, drop and hook, and terminal-to-terminal runs. Drivers have assigned conventional tractors that are serviced frequently. Company benefits include Anthem health insurance with low weekly cost, six paid holidays per year, increasing amounts of vacation beginning after a year of service, company paid profit sharing retirement plan, 401K, and company paid life insurance. OTR drivers will earn $65,000-$74,000 a year, and can make additional money with safety bonuses. Houff Transfer also has a scholarship program for employees with children in higher education and a weight loss incentive program to encourage healthy living.
