PAM Transport Trucking Career Paths
Dedicated Lanes: A Dedicated lane is perfect if you’re looking for steady pay and predictable weekly home time. As a PAM driver on a Dedicated lane, you will run the same or similar route each week – allowing you to plan your stops and hometime on a more consistent schedule.
OTR (Over-The-Road): If you’re looking to see the country and make the most out of your paychecks, OTR might be the best choice for you. This is the type of trucking that will keep you running as OTR drivers are typically out for 2-3 weeks at a time (sometimes longer) before heading back home.
Team: Team is a great way to rack up the most miles possible in one week, not to mention, team drivers each get paid for every approved mile the truck moves. If you don’t have a partner in mind, PAM can help set you up with someone from your area during or after truck driving school.
Lease-Purchase: PAM Transport offers a lease program for drivers who want to start or expand an owner-operator business. There will be no credit checks, no money down, and reliable miles from PAM. This is a great way to get your feet wet on the Owner-Operator side of things while still having the support of an experienced company behind you.
Driver Mentor: Another great program PAM trucking offers is the chance to become a Driver Mentor. A Driver Mentor is essentially a Driver Trainer that helps educate the next generation of truck drivers. If you like the idea of being a “coach” and want to be rewarded for helping others, becoming a Driver Mentor might be right for you.
