Here is what some Melton spouses have to say:

”Drivers are treated like people, not numbers. Employees in different departments are always willing to assist us whenever we need it.”
”The people truly make Melton special. The CEO, Mr. Peterson, always makes you feel special and like you are part of a family. He knows my name and says hi to me in the hallway even when he is obviously busy. Our driver manager is always concerned about us and does her best to communicate.”
”It is great how Melton cares about the health of their drivers. They have programs that other companies would never even think of having.”
”I ride with my husband and when we went to Melton, I knew that we would be with Melton until we retire.”

Almost 30% of Melton’s drivers have been with the company for more than 3 years and over 100 of our drivers have driven more than one million miles with Melton. We are looking for the next driver to call Melton home. Is that you?
