Flatbed CDL training at Melton
I love working with/for Melton! I think your program for drivers with no experience is excellent. Every person I’ve interacted with, either in person or over the phone, has been great. I’m not sure what more a driver fresh out of trucking school could ask for. Sure, the job is hard sometimes, that’s the job. The company has always treated me very, very well. Thank you! -Melton Driver
