PAM has a long history of training drivers into the business. We do this through a second-seat Driver Mentor Program that benefits both new and experienced drivers.
Starting in late 2018, new Mentors at PAM will be issued special edition Mentor trucks — 2019 Peterbilt 579 UltraLofts with automatic transmissions. These state-of-the-art rolling classrooms guarantee that PAM Mentors and Students receive the best equipment to train on, putting them both on the road to success.
When student drivers come on board at PAM, they spend a minimum of two weeks driving second seat with a certified Driver Mentor. Once their mentor recommends them for upgrade to first seat, they take to the road on their own.
Experienced, safe, and dependable drivers can become certified mentors at PAM, giving them the opportunity to earn significantly more and help train the next generation of PAM drivers. It’s a great way for seasoned drivers to put their valuable experience to use and advance their careers.
