    Mark,

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you joined us. You'll get some answers on PAM as there are several here that have driven or are driving for them. Good luck and keep us posted on how you do with them.

    HEY, new driver! Hope everything is working out for you. I drove for PAM for two years. It's not a bad company to start out with. They are pretty good with directions, and at the very least, a place to start.
    After two years, I decided that I wanted to be closer to home ALL the time. So, I got a local driving job.
    So, good luck to you, hope to see you around.

    Good luck with PAM! From what I hear they are a good entry level company. On of my friends went through Driver Solutions in Indianapolis and now works for PAM. He has been there over a year and runs a dedicated route.

    Hey Markr,
    I'm at C1 in Fort Worth right now. Just passed all my written tests at the dps. I look forward to posting here myself on my PAM training and driving experiences.

    This may be a new policy, but I was told the training driver will pick us up at our home area and the initial orientation is at school with another one at the Arkansas yard after training is done. I guess someone got smarter and decided it was easier for new drivers to wait at home for a trainer then sitting in an Tontitown motel waiting.

    Pam is a alright company in my opinion not the best paying but they have done what they have said and miles have been decent even with slowdown in automotive. Run legal not much pressure not to just DM not always up on your available hours, I have had to remind them a cpl of times but then that was the end of it no problem. Be professional and try and remember you are the only contact customer may have to company.
