The Upward Driving Program is a training program designed to give employees the opportunity to receive the necessary training skills and opportunity for promotion into a Certified Motor Vehicle Operator- Delivery Specialist position. Once selected for the program, employees will go out on a few runs with a driver as a helper early on in the training to get a feel for the duties and requirements of the job and to see if they are comfortable in continuing this program. The employee cannot move forward in the program until the permit is obtained.
Topics to be trained on are:
Once the training period is completed (time period may vary per employee), the employee will have a progress report completed by the Driver Safety Specialist. If he feels that the employee is ready to move forward, the employee will have 30 days to get their CDLA. (the cost for the permit and license will be the employees responsibility and not paid for by the company)
Starting rate of pay is $20.00/hour and progess as you move through the program
