Frequently asked questions
What is the schedule for Drivers?
Over-the-Road Drivers will receive your dispatch and you make your own schedule as long as you are safely on time.
In the oilfield there is no set schedule. The oilfield job is on-call during your time in the field. Drivers work within the DOT hours of service regulations, meaning as long as you have hours available, you can expect a dispatch; and whenever your hours run out, you are off.
What kind of Benefits are there?
Brady Trucking offers robust benefit plans, including:
- Healthcare Benefits
- Dental & Vision
- 401K + Company Match
- Guaranteed Life Insurance
- And many, many more!
Is the Pay Hourly or By the Mile?
At Brady Trucking we do things different than most and we are proud of these distinctions.
Brady Trucking pays CDL Drivers a percentage of the loads you haul or mileage pay depending on the job. The more you haul, the more you earn.
Do you get Detention Pay?
Brady works hard with every customer to negotiate detention pay at the best rate possible. Not every customer pays detention pay, but most do. Brady Trucking is able to charge the customer at the loadout AND the location and pay our Drivers for their wait time. Brady’s goal is to keep the tires turning and less setting collecting detention pay. We all earn more money when your tires are turning.

Is there any Orientation? How Much?
New Hire Orientations generally start on Tuesday. Prior to orientation is qualification which generally occurs Monday. It will include a drive test, drug screening, and fit test.
- If you are traveling a long distance, Brady will get you a hotel Sunday night and book it through the end of orientation.
- Orientation is 3-4 days long covering rules, policy, safety guideline, elogs, etc. You will be paid $200 per day.
- When you graduate you are assigned a truck (usually a late model 18 speed Peterbilt) as well. Some Drivers make great money in their first few weeks, others need time to learn the job, so Brady offers the sign-on bonus to help with the transition.
