Melton's Base Pay Scale
Melton is excited to announce our largest driver pay increase ever! Please reference the table below for the new driver pay changes.
At Melton, your starting pay is based on your verifiable over the road (OTR) experience.
Once you become a part of the Melton Truck Lines team, you will receive raises based on your accumulated months of OTR experience until you drive 120,000 miles with Melton. At that point, you will continue to receive raises based on the Melton miles you drive.
In 2020, our average driver made $65,000 - $70,000 based on OTR experience and our top driver in 2020 made over $100,000!
