Earn up to $50,000 first year!

Student drivers who complete the Driver Solutions CDL training program and go to work for PAM Transport can earn up to $50,000 in the first year.  In addition to great first year pay potential, PAM offers its drivers guaranteed pay and several career path opportunities.  Take a look at some of these different career paths below.  

Team Driver

Running Team simply means that you are sharing a truck and driving responsibilities with a co-driver. The big advantage of being a team driver is that you're able to get higher miles and bigger paychecks than a general company driver.

Team Driver Recap

  • Make up to $40,000 in the first year
  • Get higher miles and bigger paychecks
  • Have a co-driver for assistance

Team HazMat Driver

Like regular Team drivers, Team HazMat drivers at PAM Transport are able to run more miles and bring home bigger paychecks than general drivers. The key difference between Team and Team HazMat is that drivers with HazMat endorsements can run HazMat freight, which entitles them to earn more pay per mile than a general driver. Plus, having a HazMat endorsement means more load opportunities. PAM drivers who choose to run Team HazMat have the ability to maximize their first year earnings. PAM offers reimbursement for HazMat endorsement costs in addition to paying out the sign-on bonus after it is obtained.

Team HazMat Recap

  • Make up to $50,000 in the first year
  • Paid more per mile (both HazMat & non-HazMat loads)
  • Get higher miles and bigger paychecks
  • PAM reimburses for endorsement upgrade
  • $1,000 sign-on bonus paid for obtaining HazMat endorsement 

What Are Hazardous Materials?

You may be wondering what type of freight Team HazMat drivers haul. Hazardous materials are any materials the U.S. Government Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has designated as health or physical hazards. Examples include dry cleaning chemicals, hairspray and transmission fluids.

Solo Driver

Solo truck driving jobs at PAM Transport are available when you are not fulfilling your Team or Team HazMat driving commitment during the first year. These solo driving jobs are ideal for the person who enjoys operating on their own schedule and doesn’t mind spending time alone.

Solo Driver Recap

  • Make up to $35,000 in the first year
  • Available when not fulfilling Team or Team HazMat commitment
  • Single driver responsible for all duties
  • Driver paid for solo miles

Driver Guaranteed Pay

PAM Transport understands that it can take a bit of time to settle into a new job. To help you get started on the right track, PAM guarantees your paycheck to be at least $500/week for the first 60 days after becoming a first seat driver. This provides peace of mind as you learn and develop new routines.
