Drivers who work for TMC must obtain a Class A Commercial Driver's License (CDL-A). Obtaining your CDL is a great investment, as this is an in-demand skill with great job stability. While TMC mostly hires recent graduates of truck driving schools that already have a Class A CDL, we also offer an in-house Class A CDL Certification Program for select applicants. This precedes our flatbed and over-the-road training. Trainees are paid $600 per week during training. Drivers enrolled in our Class A CDL Certification Program recieve $500 per week in training pay.
TMC currently has a demand for drivers in certain states that the local truck driving schools have been unable to meet. If you are a resident of one of these states you may qualify to attend TMC’s Class A CDL Certification Program for the purpose of obtaining employment at TMC only. The states we are currently seeking applicants from to attend our training program is as follows: Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio, Southern Wisconsin and Southern Minnesota. We also have limited opportunities for applicants residing in Western Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
