Teamwork. Safety. Service.
It’s not unusual for Estes employees to stay with the company 25 years or longer. Why? Estes isn’t your average transportation company. Our pay and benefits are highly competitive. And although we’re the nation’s largest privately-held carrier, we still embrace our small-company roots. What’s more, teamwork is our way-of-life. So it’s really no surprise that so many people appreciate the stability and know-how found in a family-owned organization that’s been in business for almost 90 years.
Estes’ culture also revolves around safety. In fact, protecting our teammates, customers, and the general public is both our mission and our duty. We start by hiring drivers with top-notch driving skills — and we continuously recognize their performance. There’s ongoing training. And we also invest in the latest safety technology for our trucks, such as roll-stability and collision-avoidance systems. The result is that Estes has one of the best safety records in the industry.
Meanwhile, we also believe in giving back to the communities we serve — both near and far. For example, about 100 Estes employees worked onsite in Puerto Rico to assist with the island’s recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria. Their primary mission was to deliver vital supplies from FEMA warehouses. But during their off-duty hours, many of them volunteered their skills to repair children’s-home facilities in three communities. According to the overseer of one of the storm-damaged properties, these Estes employees were literally the answer to her prayers.
At Estes, we have a long heritage of supporting and honoring our military. We understand firsthand the value that military veterans bring to our work force and our communities. After all, we’re looking for people who are team-oriented, dedicated, self-motivated, and adaptable — all skills that are developed in the military. In fact, Estes was one of the first employers to make the Top Veteran Friendly Employers list at bestjobsusa.com.
Estes offers a wide range of career opportunities — everything from driving to logistics to marketing. Business Development Manager Lamar C. talks about what makes Estes a great place to work.

Like flexibility and variety on the job? Mechanic/Driver Scooter M. says that a career at Estes offers plenty — plus teammates and a company that back you all the way.
“I graduated from the Estes Driving School 3 years ago, and now I help teach there. It would be a waste to go anywhere else. They equip you to be the best professional driver that you can be.”
“Estes has good hours, good pay, and good people. While the work is fast paced and demanding, it’s an atmosphere without the levels of unnecessary stress I’ve heard people complain about at other companies. Good training and experienced management staff are always available. I look forward to coming to work every day.”
“I’m the second generation in my family to work at Estes as a driver. My dad recommended that I get hired as a dockworker and then attend the Estes Driving School, which I did. I like being at Estes because it has an all-around good work environment where everyone tries to work things out together as a team.”
