LIFE AT CHRISTENSON
Interested in working with Christenson? You’re in the right place! We are looking to work with Company Drivers, Owner-Operators, and aspiring owner-operators through our Lease Purchase Program.

At Christenson, we hire Company, Owner, and Lease Operators for all three of our fleets. The main difference between these roles is who owns the truck: Company Drivers drive our equipment, while owner-operators drive their own equipment and lease operators lease a truck and eventually own it. Each position comes with different pay rates, benefit costs, sign-on terms, and bonuses. We also allow drivers to become Lease Operators later on if they so choose. Some positions may be limited depending on the fleet so ask a Recruiter if you’re curious. You can learn more about each position below
