Tyson OTR drivers receive largest pay increase ever
Posted: April 14, 2021
We are so excited to announce a new pay increase for our OTR drivers! At Tyson Foods, our drivers are an integral part of our success and we are grateful for their service, loyalty, and dedication to their jobs. We know this past year has been particularly challenging in so many ways. We’ve taken a lot of time to listen to driver feedback and survey responses to make sure we’re meeting our drivers’ needs as much as possible.
This wage increase is an investment in their future - and ours - as we continue to position Tyson Foods as a leading employer in the industry. With Tyson’s largest pay increase ever, our typical OTR drivers will average $80,000 in annual earnings! Based on our 2020 earnings statistics, our top earners (top 10%) will hit $100,000. These are real numbers from real drivers! In addition to the competitive pay, our OTR drivers average 2,600 miles per week and enjoy a number of great benefits including flexible home time, a generous group health plan, paid holidays and vacation, company-matched 401(k), stock plans, and safety bonuses.
