When looking into a new career, knowing that you can really make a go of it will always be top of mind. It makes complete sense that NTB values the individuals who drive for them. After all, what would we be without our drivers? 

Becoming A CDL-A Driver While the thought of incurring debt for the education needed to drive a big rig may seem daunting, NTB will reimburse up to $5,000 for your CDL-A training. You will also receive 4 weeks of on-the-job training with a coach in the cab with you. Not only is this a timepaid program offered by NTB, but you are also guaranteed a 5-day week with the same 2 days off every week, even during your training period. 

Income Potential Along with competitive mileage rates paid through weekly direct deposit, NTB offers an additional 3 CPM for hazmat and tanker endorsements. A driver for NTB can increase their income by driving more on the weekends with a weekend incentive of 6 CPM. Are you a safe and productive driver? There are additional bonuses waiting for you. 

With 95% drop and hook for our drivers, there is very little down time. Add to that NTB’s detention, breakdown, and pickup/drop pay policy, and we think you’ll be hard pressed to find a regional trucking company that values its employees more. 

Did we mention holiday pay and other paid time off? Yeah, there’s that too! 

The Pay Isn’t All In The Paycheck NTB knows that good health is paramount to being a safe, effective, and productive driver. Our generous medical, dental, optical, and life benefits will help keep you on the road and those reliable 2 days off every week will give you the time to schedule necessary appointments during regular hours. 

Considering The Future In addition to really competitive income potential for driving a truck, it is important to add into the equation other benefits NTB offers. After 6 months on the job, NTB employees are eligible for the 401k retirement plan with a 10% match. So, you’ll not only be earning the income needed to live now, but will have some funds stocked away for those days of leisure everyone looks forward to in their later years of life. 

We think these are all great reasons to drive for NTB. Click the link to apply: apply to drive with NTB
