CDL drivers who have 3-12 months of over-the-road experience must go through our driver training program. The training program is 4-6 weeks depending on the drivers capability. This program is actual over-the-road driving with a Witte Bros. driver-trainer performing the normal tasks that will be required as a solo driver.
During this training period drivers are paid $55 per day while on the road – up to $385 per week. Successful completion of this program is dependent upon you, the trainee, your over-the-road trainer, and Witte's Safety Department. All three entities must agree that the trainee is ready for solo dispatch.
When the training program is completed, base pay is as follows (based on accumulated experience):
0-6 mo. 24¢
6-12 mo. 28¢
1 yr 32¢
