Student Driver Opportunities
Crete Carrier Corporation has always valued driver experience, but we recognize the need for training when starting your driving career. If you have graduated from a truck driving program at one of our approved schools that prepares you for CDL jobs, you may qualify for our training program to drive with Crete Carrier or Shaffer Trucking. Browse our list of approved schools to see if there is one in your area.
We offer a one-on-one, hands-on training program. The trainer will be with you on the road at all times during the eight week period to answer any questions you may have. All of our trainers have at least two years of experience with the industry knowledge to help you succeed.
We offer our trainees $700/week while training, and when training concludes we offer a higher rate of pay of $.41 for per practical mile for Crete Carrier and $.43 for Shaffer Trucking. Once the trainee reaches six months of employment, he or she will receive an increase in the starting pay based on the fleet are joining.
No Team Driving for New Graduates
Our specialized training program does not allow for 24-hour team driving. We believe that our trainees deserve hands-on, supervised training to learn the necessary skills to be a professional truck driver.
