THE BUDDY PROGRAM
We understand that finding a trucking job without real-world experience can be challenging. Likewise, there are several challenges in gaining tangible experience as a trucker. As such, we aim to help you overcome the obstacles in your trucking career with our four-week Buddy Program. It is a training program to provide qualified candidates with real-world skills and adeptness to excel in their careers as responsible truck drivers of America.
A COMPREHENSIVE OVERVIEW OF OUR BUDDY TRAINING PROGRAM
Our Buddy program is strategically designed to help put you on the road to a rewarding truck-driving career. We pair a new driver joining our company with a trucker with more than 20 years of experience. The goal is to ensure that the new members of our company can seamlessly imbibe practical skills, and safety comes naturally to them through vicarious learning. Since its inception, our Buddy program has set teams up for success. The combination of a driver with more than 20 years of experience and an aspiring trucker does wonders, as both parties absorb a lot of knowledge from each other. Our experienced truck drivers who act as ‘buddies’ offer guidance, motivation, and compassion and serve as the ideal role model for our new joiners.
