Crete Carrier and Shaffer Trucking are now offering a training program for military veterans as part of the companies’ already-existing driver training programs. Drivers will be compensated $500 a week during the eight-week program and will earn between 37 and 40 cents per mile afterward.
The program is available to drivers who have a Class A CDL, have been honorably discharged, have two years of active duty military experience within the last five years and have one year of military tractor-trailer experience.
For more information about the program, visit cretecarrierjobs.com/military.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
