Do I have to have experience?

If you obtained your CDL-A thru a school that requires at least 280 hours of training, you need no experience.  We have an Apprentice program for you.  If you obtained your CDL-A thru a school that has has less training hours and you have at least six months of tractor-trailer experience, we have a Mentor program for you.  If you have one or more years of experience, we have the perfect job for you.

How much money can I expect to make annually?

Companies today will tell you that you will make this amount of money or that amount of money; we will not do that.  Raven will tell you how much money you make will depend on how hard you want to work.  If you are a "truckstop jockey," you will not make much money and either will the company.  Raven is looking for the "Professional" driver.  The driver that understands that the way to make money is to keep the left door closed, drive the amount of hours your log will allow, not be afraid to be moonlight driver when required and trust your Driver Manager (dispatcher) that they have your back and understand your needs.
