Why Work at the Company?

Everyone at Melton works diligently to support our drivers with things like 24/7 operations and repair, but we also provide an unbiased Driver Relations department to help drivers with difficulties outside of the truck by providing the tools they need to deal with things like crisis at home, financial advising, free counseling services, and much more. We also recognize that the driver’s family at home plays a significant role in their success at Melton and have developed a spouse and family engagement group. Not only does our staff answer questions or concerns their family members have, but we also have a group called the True Blue Alliance where spouses stay in touch to give support and feedback, celebrate accomplishments, and create friendships. Melton also has a formal mentor program where incoming drivers are paired with experienced drivers that they can call any time of the day with questions. Finally, Melton’s drivers create a sense of comradery with their desire to help others succeed. Our drivers want to be proud of their colleagues and their company so they often go out of their way to help a driver tarp a load or give recommendations on anything a driver might need to know.
