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, Mentors at PAM will be issued special edition Mentor trucks — 2019 Peterbilt 579 UltraLofts with automatic transmissions. These state-of-the-art tractors 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 and they pass their tests, they’re ready to become solo drivers.
Experienced 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, earn rewards for producing safe and dependable drivers, and advance their careers.Apply to Mentor
