Actor, Chef, and Barista in the United States
Owner operators can be considered independent contractors and you need to know what you are getting into before you do. Trucking companies often have their own trucks and employ drivers to work with them. This would mean that you get all the benefits of a full time employee but limited freedom on the trips you make and the loads you carry. Other truck operators enlist owner operators who have more freedom but as indicated earlier work as independent contractors. The two have their pros and cons and each individual chooses what works best for them.
