Written by Eric Titner

Listen up, new and inexperienced drivers! If you can’t wait to get behind the wheel of a truck and start earning a paycheck as a professional driver, then keep reading! R&J Trucker Blog has some no-nonsense advice for getting yourself road-ready and employed in no time—including some top picks for company-sponsored training!

Are you worried that your lack of training or experience will make it impossible for you to get started? Don’t be! There are plenty of companies that have sponsored training programs—you can get trained and hired all at once! This includes either company-subsidized training or training hosted by the company itself, often in return for work for a specified length of time or some repayment arrangement, or both.

Here’s a list of some top trucking companies that offer sponsored CDL training:
U.S. Xpress, Inc.

Schneider National

KLLM Transportation Services

Baylor Trucking

Crete Carrier Corp.

Werner Enterprises

JB Hunt

TMC Transportation

Prime Inc

Maverick Transportation

Gordon Trucking, Inc.

Con-way Truckload

Covenant Transport

Shaffer Trucking

All of the companies on this list are well known and have solid reputations, but don’t forget—you should still do your research when choosing the one that’s best for you. Company-sponsored training can be fast, easy, and free you from upfront costs, but be certain that the specific terms in the agreement are acceptable before signing on. Make sure you choose a good company that offers thorough training and reasonable work hours at an acceptable wage!
