If hired on as a student driver, you will need to complete one week of “in house” training which will be paid at $16.00 hourly. This training will cover everything needed to be a BBI driver. A senior driver will be assigned to ride along for an indefinite period or until the senior driver is comfortable with your training level. Each week we will pay the student $800.00 in gross pay. Motel room accommodations will be paid for the by the company. After completing your training, dispatch will assign you to a route and upon completion of the route, will critique your performance.
There is no slip seating so a tractor will be assigned to you once you have completed your training. Drivers generally take better care of equipment if they have been specifically assigned to a tractor.
If you would like to apply for a driver position we are located at 165 Steuben St. which is on the truck route in Winona, MN.
