Why work for Fulger?
Did you know the average truck driver is only employed 8 months before looking for a better opportunity? Rise above the statistics with Fulger.
In our stride towards establishing ourselves as an industry leader, we do things differently. At Fulger, our most important asset is you, our drivers! Our drivers are treated with respect, and are supported with all the professional services they need, so they can focus on doing their job well. When you succeed, we succeed.
The proof is in the pudding; and with our incredibly low driver turnover rates and exponential growth in past years, we’d say we’re not doing too bad. Humblebrag aside, if you’re interested in joining the Fulger family, we’d love to hear from you!
Why work for Fulger?
Don’t get stuck in a one-size-fits-all career trajectory. At Fulger, you get to choose. Some prefer to avoid the headaches of running their own business, and would rather have the stress-free income and benefits that come along with being a company driver: We’ve got a job for you! You’re also not stuck here forever. If you later decide to tackle being an owner-operator, we’ll help you with that transition.
For those of you who love the idea of being your own boss, the independent contractor path is for you! Even if you don’t own a truck yet, we can help get you into a lease option that works best for you. If you do own a big rig, what are you waiting for? Give us a call, let’s make this beautiful relationship happen.
