NOVICE DRIVER PROGRAM
At Midland, we dedicate ourselves to delivering complete, customer-driven transportation solutions. Our team of industry professionals have worked hard to build a reputation for safety, on-time delivery, and unparalleled customer service. Staying true to this tradition is what keeps Midland driving for excellence.
Traditional driver recruitment at Midland requires successful applicants to possess at least two years of practical CLASS 1 experience prior to joining our team. We do, however, recognize that all drivers need to start somewhere and we see tremendous value in giving the opportunity to develop a stable and worthwhile career in our industry. This vision led us to develop our NOVICE DRIVER PROGRAM, where CLASS 1 drivers with less than 2 years of experience are given an opportunity to get behind the wheel.
Our NOVICE DRIVER PROGRAM is a leading edge, best in class program for fleets specializing LTL & truck load. Our goal is to ensure the safe and meaningful training of our new driver candidates through mentorship by our professional driver trainers and the use of stationary simulator. This program is designed to assist new drivers in continuing to establish safe driving skills and learn about different freight lanes in LTL (Less and full truckload markets). Spaces in this program are limited and open to safety-minded, professional individuals who want a career in driving.
• Base level knowledge through completion of a recognized 12-week driver training program from an approved truck training school. CLASS 1 holders without experience will be given consideration.
• Desire to embrace and apply the training received through Midland NOVICE DRIVER PROGRAM to the daily operation of your assigned tractor and trailer.
• Tuition reimbursement
• Group benefits and RRSP program
• Full time employment with very competitive wages and additional earning opportunities through quarterly performance.
