Is Melton a good company to drive for? Would you drive for Melton? Just got an offer to drive for them.

I would really like to hear what you have to say.

Good company, plenty of freight, benefits, good pay and a solid training program. There’s no reason not to work for them honestly. Now, will it be your perfect fit long term? There’s no way to know based on others reviews because they aren’t you. I’ve never worked for them but know drivers who have and do and they all had decent things to say.

Thanks. Appreciate the feedback! I plan to give them a try. Hope this is my final company till retirement. This will be my 3rd. Not good to have so many companies in your portfolio. Makes it look like you are the problem.

Thanks for the feedback. Really appreciate it. Plan to give them a try. Hope this is my final company till retirement. This will be my 3rd. Not good to have a history of jumping from one trucking company to the next. Thanks again!

Hi, I received an offer from Melton also. I am and old timer (51) switching gears after years in a cubicle. Supposed to start orientation 9/20, though I may push it to the following week because I have to tie up some loose ends at home. I am North of Atlanta, planning on renting a car rather than taking the Greyhound. I had a bad experience a long time ago on Greyhound and will never do that again. Those things are like rolling cell blocks. When are you starting orientation?
