GET YOUR TRUCKING CAREER STARTED WITH STEVENS TRANSPORT
Stevens Transport has been partnering with US Truck Driving School (USTDS) since 1994, operating Michigan’s premier CDL training center. This partnership allows new drivers the ability to learn through employer-based training while earning their Commercial Drivers License. Graduates of USTDS can earn up to $50,000 in their first year and $70,000 in their third year.
Training at USTDS will give you an advantage going into your career because of the way that certified professional trainers teach new drivers the industry and best practices to help them become the best and safest drivers on the road. Being Michigan’s leading CDL training program, students receive the time and attention they need to help them succeed during an intense, four-week commercial driving school. Classroom work is the first step in the process of becoming a trucker. USTDS starts a new training class every Monday, held Monday through Friday and new drivers get a total of 160 hours of training time before heading to orientation and eventually over-the-road (OTR) training.
At the end of classroom training, Stevens Transport will pay for transportation to our headquarters in Dallas, Texas to attend mandatory orientation. At this point, new graduates will be official employees of Stevens Transport and be added to the professional driver payroll.
Drivers will then move on to our over-the-road training program where they will be paired with a mentor and trainer to receive 1-on-1 driver training. Through this process, each driver goes receives the most comprehensive training in the industry, completing 240 hours behind the wheel over approximately five to six weeks. Individual training will consist of driving and navigating all five regions of the U.S., learning to haul time-sensitive, temperature-controlled commodities. While in training, you will earn a weekly salary.
After completing over the road training, drivers will be assigned to their personal equipment and be paid on a per mile basis. During the first year, drivers have an average annual income of $50,000, rising to $70,000 by the third year. After completing this part of the program, your career can go in many directions including:
• Dedicated Drivers
• Regional Drivers
• Tanker Drivers
• Independent Contractors
