Melton’s culture is based on putting our drivers first and hearing their concerns, feedback, and supporting them in their careers. We consistently welcome back rehires and make the process of onboarding as a rehire smooth and efficient.

In addition, Melton has upgraded several other pieces of our pay that you are eligible for including:


  • Tarp Pay $100

  • Up to $1,000 total for Pre-Hire Evaluation upon completion of the program

  • Fuel Bonuses adding up to $6,000 extra per year

  • Ask about our Per Diem Program that can increase your take home pay by $2,500-$6,000 annually.
