About Clover Farms
Clover Farms was founded in 1937 in the rich, rolling hills of Pennsylvania Dutch dairy country. Today, 80-plus years later, we have maintained a tradition of quality, freshness and flavor in each refreshment that bears our name.
We manufacture fluid milk, heavy cream, Icy Tea, fruit drinks, spring water, and other delicious products, and deliver to local and regional stores, restaurants, schools and other institutions located primarily in eastern Pennsylvania (including Philadelphia), New York City and Long Island, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.
When driving for Clover Farms, you will enjoy 100% local routes, making us desirable if you have a family because you will have nightly home time. We do not offer over-the-road or long-haul driving positions.
Clover Farm’s benefits include:
- Prescription drug
- Life insurance
- Paid vacations
- Company-funded pension
You will also have the opportunity to enroll in a 401(k) plan that does not require an employee contribution.
The Clover Farms Class A CDL driver must have, or be able to obtain, a tanker endorsement on his or her license. He or she will be required to operate a heavy (over 26,001 lbs) insulated tank-type straight truck to support scheduled pick up, transportation, and delivery between farms, dairy, and other designated commercial locations.
Other requirements include: 21 years of age*; possession of a clean Motor Vehicle Record (MVR); the ability to pass a DOT physical, drug screening, and physical capabilities test; compliance with all personal appearance standards; and ability to pass a Clover Farms road test. (*Applicants who are under 21 should still apply because we offer training.)
No experience is required; we offer job opportunities for both seasoned and rookie drivers.
Company Driver or Owner-Operator?
To earn a paycheck without investing your own money in a rig, driving for a specific company like Clover Farms can be a great option. While you may have less freedom and make less money overall than an owner-operator, there are several advantages to making company driving a long-term career.
Responsibility: Owner-operators have a lot of responsibility. This includes working to find loads, negotiating contracts, maintenance, and management tasks. Company drivers are given loads to haul, and their main job is driving. You will be free to switch companies or to change careers at any time.
Training: Both company drivers and owner-operators have to undergo training to acquire their CDL, but owner-operators also have to learn how to book jobs ang how to deal with customers, as well as the ins and outs of trucking laws and regulations. Some companies, such as Clover Farms, allow you to earn money while you learn.
Expenses: Owner-operators have to pay for the truck itself, truck maintenance, repairs, upgrades, insurance, and anything else involved with operating the truck. As a company driver, you only have to drive. You are not responsible for fixing or upgrading the truck or providing insurance.
