2019 Military Friendly Employer

Melton is proud to be named a Top 10 Gold-level Military Friendly® Employer Award recipient for 2019. For more than a decade, Military Friendly® ratings have set the standard for companies demonstrating positive employment & education outcomes for military members, veterans, and their families.

Apprenticeships & On-The-Job Training

With over 30% of Melton employees having served in the military, we are always looking to hire veterans and active duty reservists.

Melton offers on-the-job training, apprenticeships, and a great career for any driver that enjoys a culture focusing on teamwork, discipline, and dedication.

Melton is proud to offer military veterans the opportunity to enroll in our national apprenticeship program approved by the Department of Labor for all our trainees and students. Our 12-month training is also recognized by Veterans Affairs as an educational program; reservists, National Guard, and veterans may be able to access their VA educational benefits over the course of their first year at Melton.


Melton has a fleet of four military themed trucks that bring awareness and recognition to Melton’s military community. All Melton military members and veterans enjoy special decals for their trucks. We have a longstanding history of recruiting servicemen and women and helping with their transition back to civilian life.

Whether you are a military veteran or a driver looking for the next step in your career, we are looking for drivers like you to join our fleet and our family.

“Melton Truck Lines believes that it is our duty to provide America’s veterans and transitioning service members with access to great careers in an industry where they fit in so well,” said Bob Peterson, Melton Chairman and CEO. “We have found that the military culture and our company culture are linked with connection points that include the value of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and an adventurous spirit. With those shared values, servicemen and women are set up for incredible success with Melton, and we are excited to help them find their career with us.”
