What to Expect with Mast Training
Great training prepares new drivers with the confidence to tackle the challenges that truck drivers face. It’s important that our drivers feel confident and successful long term, and that’s why we don’t take any shortcuts in our training. Some companies prioritize getting drivers on the road above taking the time to properly train their drivers, and that’s not the kind of company a good driver deserves.
With Mast training, you get two things:
Best training in the industry
At Mast, we have assembled a team of high-performers. When we’re training you, we want you to be a high performer on our team, too. We make sure that you’re equipped with the tools, knowledge, and experience you’ll need when you’re out on the road. If you’re looking for the bare minimum, we’re not the right fit.
A driving position that gets you experience.
As in any career, the first year is a learning experience. When you graduate the training program and go solo, you’re going to continue to learn and grow and we help you through it, every step of the way. When you’ve driven 100,000 miles you’ve hit a huge milestone. Then you get to choose from any of our experienced driver positions.
You always have the power to choose where you want to work.
At Mast, we pride ourselves on creating jobs that people want to do. After completing the Mast Training program and earning one year of experience, you will be able to choose any pay plan available to our experienced drivers.
