Great Company, Culture for Drivers

I have been working at Melton Truck Lines full-time (Less than a year) Driver benefits are great, first time I've felt like my employer really cared about me and my family. HQ is beautiful and there are plenty of perks if you're able to have your routes pass through Tulsa. Highly reccommend!
