Millis Transfer really sets themselves apart with their company training program. Not only is the training pay above average, but the truck is dispatched as a solo operation. The vast majority of training companies will dispatch trainers and trainees as a team operated truck, meaning while you drive, your trainer is normally sleeping and vice-versa. However, in this case, the truck is dispatched as a solo operation, ensuring the trainer will always be in the passenger seat while you drive.
The duration of training is 6 weeks long which, in our opinion, is about the perfect amount of time.
Millis also offers a "per diem", or "Tax Advantage" pay scale as they call it: More on Millis Transfer's Pay Scales
