Crete Carrier and Shaffer Trucking Open Up Military Program

Crete Carrier and Shaffer Trucking are pleased to announce the addition of a Military Program to our Driver Training Program. Crete and Shaffer want to make the transition back to civilian life as easy as possible, therefore, we’d like to provide drivers the opportunity of a great career with a debt free and stable company.

The program requires the driver to have a Class A CDL license, be honorably discharged, have 2 years of Active Duty Military experience in the last 5 years, and have 1 year of military semi tractor trailer combination experience in the last 5 years. Drivers will be compensated $500 a week during the 8 week training, and will earn between $.37 and $.40 cents per practical mile after being released from the road training program.

“I am excited that the new military program is active. We’ve been working hard to get the program up and running, and I can’t wait to see the positive results. The 8 week program is designed to take the semi tractor trailer skills learned in the military and translate them to civilian commercial driving. Our program is different from other programs because we have great benefits, excellent pay, and the driver will be paired with an experienced trainer over those 8 weeks. Additionally, I want to share my sheer gratitude to all of the individuals who have served our country,” says Jeff Dady, Driver Development Manager at Crete Carrier.
