Don’t Have A CDL Yet?
Melton now offers the opportunity to earn your Class A CDL free of debt with our Sponsorship Program. This program is currently only open to residents of Oklahoma or Texas. If you live outside of these states, we encourage those seeking their Class A CDL license to visit the CVTA or NAPFTDS websites for accredited schools. Once you obtain your license, we can make your transition to a driver much easier with our Pre-Hire and Tuition Reimbursement Programs.
If you are interested in driving for Melton and do not have a CDL yet, call us today at 866-715-8563. Our Recruiters can provide details on our Sponsorship program if you’re a resident of Oklahoma or Texas, or assist with options for schooling outside of these states.
Melton welcomes recent CDL school graduates and drivers that have not had any over-the-road (OTR) driving experience. We know that you are the future of our company so we insist on providing quality training.
Tuition Reimbursement Program
Melton has recently doubled our tuition reimbursement up to $10,000 and doubled our tarp pay to $100 per load, we also offer $5,000 driver supplemental pay.
If your CDL school or company financing your CDL program requires a pre-hire letter before you can attend their course, contact a Melton recruiter at 866-715-8563 and they can send this letter directly to them. If you graduate on a Friday, you can be in Melton’s on-the-job training program as soon as Monday with our convenient pre-hire process.
Customized On-the-Job Training Program
Most entry-level drivers will be a part of our 14-day on-the-job training, where we will cover our culture, safety standards, load securement, and tarping best practices. If you need any additional help during the class, we can provide additional one-on-one training. We want to give you the tools you need to be successful.
Nationally-Recognized Apprenticeship Program
Melton Truck Lines has had a nationally-recognized, Department of Labor and Veterans Affairs approved apprenticeship program since 2017. This program includes 8-14 days of on-the-job training with instructors who have immense background in transportation, including a former Melton driver with 2.5 Million Miles. During this training, you will have the opportunity to secure 20-30 different types of loads, which is more than you would see in 2 months of driving. Furthermore, we provide extensive backing training so you will feel confident in backing our 53’ flatbed trailers.
All entry-level drivers will go out for approximately three weeks with a Road Trainer that is matched based on their personality. You will be paid a per-diem during this time, and once you are ready to get on your own truck, you will start receiving pay by mile.
Quality training doesn’t end after your initial on the job training. The trucking industry is constantly changing, so we focus on communicating important information in a timely manner by print, email, online training, and social media to help make our drivers the best on the road. We are also available day and night to support and assist our drivers in any situation.
