Company Training: Training Pay & Items To Bring

Tulip City Truck Stop Sign

Training pay will vary wildly from company to company, but will certainly be lower than what you will make as a solo driver.

Be prepared to travel very lightly while in company training, as space on your trainers truck will be extremely limited for trainees.

How much will I be paid during my company training phase?

It will vary by company, length of training, and the type of job you're doing. Below are a couple of examples.

What should I bring with me while on the trainer's truck?

You're going to want to bring as little as possible, as you will be on the trainers truck and most of the space will already be taken up by his stuff. So one good-sized duffle bag, pillow, & blanket is most times all you're going to be able to bring.
