Pay is a primary factor for drivers but not the be-all and end-all

December 13, 2022

How much does it pay? That’s the question at the forefront of every job candidate’s mind when they’re considering new employment, and it’s always a hot topic in the trucking field as the industry strives to attract and retain drivers.

According to a recent trends report from WorkHound, pay was once again a top critical theme – a comment in which drivers explicitly state in a survey their intention or desire to leave a company – in 2022, accounting for 20.2% of all critical feedback received through the platform. That’s compared to 17.2% in 2021.
