Midwest OTR Driving Jobs

K&B's driver program focuses on the person who truly enjoys driving throughout the Midwest from the Rocky Mountains to Ohio. Sure, we have runs to the Pacific Northwest and also some Eastern runs, but only for those who really want them. With our effective minimum mileage guarantee program, you'll just know the paycheck will be there every week. We know you're coming here for the miles and the money. We don't make bones about it, the more money we both make, the more fun it is. Instead of switching jobs every month, watching for that elusive "job of a lifetime," come to K&B and make it a reality with folks who know how to truck seriously and have FUN doing it!
