Melton Driver of the Month

Chris Faircloth

Chris Faircloth was born and raised in North Carolina, but now calls Cleveland, Oklahoma home. Chris has been a professional driver for 6 years and has been with Melton for over 4 years. Before becoming a truck driver, Chris worked construction.

When Chris is not driving he enjoys spending time with his wife and his three sons. He also like to fish, hunt, and work in the yard.

When asked what sets Melton apart from other companies, Chris said, “Besides the great pay, Melton is a driver friendly company that furnishes us with top of the line equipment that helps us do our job efficiently.”

We asked Chris what tips he would give to other drivers to help them succeed, he said, “Be patient, communicate with your DM, and manage your time properly. Also, remember to pad your load, this will prevent tarps from ripping. The more time you take properly securing your load, the less time you will have to spend fixing it.”
