    I too, am considering joining Melton. I am currently Active Duty Military, but as soon as my contract is up I want to get into Truck Driving. From a Beginner's Point of view, Melton's pay scale, updated equipment and opportunity for growth seems like an inviting promise. I have no family to 'come home to', so I plan to drive and drive and drive and drive....
    Question is....what are the limits at Melton? Are the miles even good? Are there ways to get more out of the job? Any insight would be appreciated.

    I am active duty military too. I attend CDL school this coming April (2018) and also look at Melton as one of my top 5 companies. I haven't found much information on them yet, but I suggest you look into Superior Carriers too. If I can get hired by them, I will go with them before anyone. However, they require TWIC, HAZMAT, Tanker, and a Passport. They pay .52 loaded & .42 unloaded. My other choices are TMC, Crete Carrier, Millis Transfer, and Maverick. I have no experience, so take this like a grain of salt. Just a guy who did a lot of homework first and talked to a lot of people.
