Why Work at the Company?

We support drivers with difficulties outside of the truck by providing the tools they need to deal with things like crisis at home, and much more. We also recognize the driver's family at home plays a significant role in their success and have developed a spouse and family engagement group. Melton also has a formal mentor program where incoming drivers are paired with experienced drivers. We have also added a dedicated veteran driver manager that works with Veterans on needs that are specific to them. In addition, we have a military pride fleet and every veteran receives a military challenge coin upon hire.
