The hiring requirements are pretty average as compared to the rest of the industry. What’s important to note here, however, is that MCT is a 100% owner operator and lease operator based company. Once you’ve completed CDL training, you’ll have 3 options. The first option is to purchase your own truck and lease it onto MCT.
The second option is to lease a truck directly from MCT. And the final option is to work with one of the smaller owner operator fleets and drive for them as a company driver. MCT will handle all of the arrangements but you will drive equipment owned by an owner operator or lease operator. We suggest the third option for at least the first year of driving. Do not, under any circumstances, lease or purchase your own truck before you have a full year of experience.
No, drivers will obtain their CDL permit during the first week of the program, but those who have already passed their CDL written exams at home will have a head start.
Yes, drivers will be required to obtain a valid US Passport within 90 days of hire.
A HazMat endorsement is highly encouraged for all drivers.
