As an extra precaution for our current and future drivers, in addition to following CDC guidelines to help prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19, Melton is not currently hiring entry level drivers that are required to go out with a trainer (less than 5 months OTR experience) at this time. However, if you would like a recruiter to follow up with you about driving opportunities with Melton when our trainee program is open or once you reach 5 months OTR experience, please give our team a call.
