Best of luck to you, Kody! I'm just about done with the classroom portion of my CDL training. Up next is the driving portion.
Melton is at the top of my short list right now. Both of my instructors have said they are a great company to work for, and so far, everything the recruiter has told me sounds good! I have a few more questions to ask on Monday, but those are just formalities. The fact that they're family and driver health and safety oriented is a big plus for me.
Again, I wish you the best of luck going forward! And keep us up to date on your progress!
A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:
I've talked to their recruiters a lot and if family and safety, like me, r major pluses to u then u will love everything they tell u!

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?
Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.
We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.
A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment
The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.
During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.
