We follow a simple process when hiring our drivers - help to get them educated, get them trained and send them to the open roads. Below is a break down of how it could work for you.
Find a CDL School
TMC has hired recent truck school graduates since 1993. Transitioning new drivers into the industry and training them in load securement is our specialty. We hire drivers from a variety of schools.
When exploring schools, you should ask yourself these questions:
- Is the school accredited by a legitimate state or national agency?
- Is the school program at least 160 hours?
- How many hours of "hands on the wheel" time are built into the curriculum?
- What does the course cost, what is included & can the school help you finance the tuition?
Finance Your Education
College is expensive. But fortunately for you, there are options available to help you with financing:
- Government Grants
- Student Loans
- Payment options with the school
- TMC offers recent graduates tuition reimbursement. Learn more.
