Driver Orientation

At Barnes, we value all our team members. So much so that we call them family.

Once a family member is hired, we make sure they are certified with the Department of Transportation (DOT) medical card, drug screens and road test. We then take experienced drivers through self paced classroom training covering safety and operational expectations, as well as required on-boarding paperwork with our trainers Larry Wolfe & Ron Pugh.

We provide snacks, drinks, and lunches during the two class days. During orientation you will have the opportunity to talk with your Fleet Leader about company procedures and expectations as well. Lodging and travel accommodations are provided for those traveling in for orientation days (speak with our recruiter for specifics and other incentives).

Veterans Welcome & Honored

We are proud to support our military personnel and give a Military Bonus Pay each year.
