Why We Have Orientation
When a new Owner Operator joins PAM’s fleet of professional drivers, they attend a three-day orientation, which is an important step that helps set up a successful working relationship between our company and yours. We value Owner Operators’ businesses and time and pay $500 for orientation, on top of our $1,000 sign-on bonus.
How It Works
You’ll be scheduled for a three-day orientation at one of our 4 orientation sites. You'll need to drive your tractor to orientation. We'll compensate you for the miles you travel to get to your assigned orientation site. We provide lodging at a hotel nearby starting the night before orientation begins. Breakfast and lunch are also included while in orientation.
Here’s what a typical orientation looks like:
Driver qualification paperwork Road test
DOT hazardous materials compliance
OSHA hazardous communications
Logs/electronic on-board recorder (EOBR)
Meet Driver Manager
What to Bring
Once you complete orientation, you’ll be given your first assignment and take to the road as a PAM driver. It happens pretty quickly so we recommend packing eight days worth of clothes and toiletries.
