Embracing the freedom of the open road while knowing you have stable earnings makes the entire experience truly fulfilling.

Why Drive With Steve’s?
Consistent Work And Home Life
We’re Real People Who Actually Care
Have You Always Wanted To Start A Business
Through our Shifting Gears program, we provide you with a pathway from company driver to owner/operator. From mentorship and training, to helping you buy or lease your own truck, we’d love to help you begin the journey of running your own business!
Interested in Exploring Life Outside the Cab?
Look, we get that not everyone will want to drive forever. There comes a time in many truck drivers’ lives that we want to explore life off the road. With Steve’s group of companies you can explore a non-driving career in operations, human resources, sales or even as a driving instructor. Of course if you love the job and want to continue driving we also have Roadmaster, a professional driver development program to keep you elevating skills and abilities.
Our Process From The First Call To Your First Paycheque
Who We Are
When Steve Brandt founded Steve’s Livestock Transport in 1987, his vision was to make a living and support his family while working in an industry he was passionate about – and to do it in a way that would align with his core values and his faith.
From that young entrepreneur and a single truck and trailer, Steve’s Livestock Transport has grown to become the largest commercial livestock carrier in North America – and a leader in the transportation industry. Through nearly three decades of growth, the company’s vision has expanded but has always stayed true to the values that started it all.
Who You Are
You’re someone with grit who thrives in a highly physical environment. You’re someone who lives by your word, acts with integrity, is a flexible problem solver, will represent the company well with customers, cares for the animals, is open and honest, has an strong work ethic and is resilient when facing tough loads and cold days. If this is you, we encourage you to apply today!
We pay mileage for driving plus flat-rate pay for additional load items such as loading/unloading or scraping out the trailer. Our Company Drivers are averaging between $0.55-0.88/mile (all pay items combined).
We will work with you to meet your mileage expectations! We require a minimum of 7,000 miles monthly but have many drivers running 12,0000 miles or more in a month. Open board availability and flexibility with your schedule help us to maximize your mileage potential!
We require drivers to run on a weekend rotation of one in four. This is scheduled a whole year in advance. You are welcome to trade your weekend with another driver if they would like to! Keep in mind, that some lanes require trips that will overlap with weekends to ensure we are meeting your mileage expectations.
We hire drivers of all experience levels! Please reach out to our Driver Recruiter to inquire about current openings.
