The Dart Network is offering graduates tuition reimbursement opportunities as well as sign-on bonuses for those that complete its Advantage Driver University (ADU).
Drivers who have completed 160 hours and have earned their commercial driver’s license from an accredited school are eligible for tuition reimbursement up to $6,000 from Dart. After completing ADU, drivers can earn a $1,500 graduation sign-on bonus for completing training and beginning their career with Dart.
“Driving school grads should take advantage of these great offers,” said ADU Driver Training Manager Randy Luckow. “Not only does Dart have one of the most generous tuition reimbursements in the industry, we’ve also partnered with schools to pay student tuitions up front. That’s absolutely no cost to the driver.”
Dart also recently announced a boost to driver pay by up to 10 cents per mile, it said. The average increase will be 5 cents per mile and owner-operators will also get a fuel adjustment and accessorial pay. Employee drivers will receive a fuel bonus.
“Owner operators in some of our dedicated operations are making $1.35 per mile or more including fuel adjustment,” said Russ Moore, Dart vice president of fleet services.
In addition, Dart is offering sign-on bonuses for all of its driving career options. For owner-operators with their own truck, Dart offers a $5,000 signing bonus. All other owner-operators and employee drivers are eligible for $3,000 bonuses.
