“I love working at Melton! I think their 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 person just out of trucking school could ask for. Sure, the job is hard sometimes, that’s the job. The company, (Melton), has always treated me very, very well. Thank you!

Carla, Melton Driver

Melton’s Online Application Process – Watch Now!


Recent CDL school graduates with 4 or less months of OTR can qualify for Melton’s tuition reimbursement program. Our plan will pay $150 every month up to $10,000! The first payout will follow your 30-day Melton anniversary.

If the driver paid less than $10,000 pursuing their CDL the payout will stop at the amount they paid.


Most entry level drivers will be a part of our 8 day pre-hire evaluation program 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!


All entry level drivers will go out for at least 3 weeks with a road trainer that is matched based on their personality and training needs. 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.
