CDL Driver Jobs With Matheson
Matheson offers a unique employment experience that we feel sets us apart from other companies offering CDL driver jobs. Why? Here are just some of the ways in which Matheson is a special place to work:
- At Matheson, you get a set route and set schedule week over week. This means that you get to maximize your home time — something that can be hard to do as a driver — and you always know when you will be at work and when you will be at home.
- We also pay by the hour, rather than the mile, which means that you can rest easy in the knowledge that you will be paid for every single hour that you are at work. It also takes some of the guesswork out of your regular paycheck.
- Our CDL driver jobs are always for no-touch loads, which is both safer for you and allows you to focus on what you do best: driving.
- We also offer comprehensive employee benefits, including (but not limited to) medical and life insurance plans, retirement plans, and employee assistance programs.

FAQs About CDL Driving Jobs
Perhaps you still have some questions about CDL truck driving jobs. Here are some answers to a few of the most common ones.
What does CDL stand for and what is a CDL truck driver?
CDL stands for “commercial driver’s license.” A CDL is issued by the Department of Transportation (DoT), and is required in order to drive a commercial motor vehicle in the United States. A CDL truck driver is the name given to someone who not only holds a CDL and is thus permitted to operate vehicles that are larger than the average car and carry commercial goods, but who chooses to make a career of this skill. There are three types of CDL licenses — Class A, B, and C.
How can I be a truck driver?
If you want to be a truck driver for Matheson, as mentioned, you can check out our current listings and requirements here. It is important to check the requirements for each specific position, but when it comes to CDL truck driving jobs we typically hire Class A CDL truck drivers with at least one year of experience, among other requirements — and we have both full-time and part-time positions.
How long do truck drivers stay away from home?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Hours of Service (HOS) regulations require that drivers only drive 11-14 hours a day, and take a break for at least 10 hours after 60 hours of driving.
When you have local routes, you can be home daily, and this is the case for most Matheson drivers. Even on long hauls, the routes are all designed so that our drivers can be home at least once a week. Some team drivers are on the road longer, and are able to drive up to 80 hours a week and will get paid for every hour — even when not driving.
As mentioned, the hourly pay, set schedules and routes that you will have at Matheson ensure that you are able to maximize your home time, even if you are working longer routes. If you would like to apply for a job with us, check our full requirements and available listings today.
