Job Description

Company’s Summary: 

Bison Transport is one of the few companies which offers a program geared towards new drivers who have just attended and obtained their AZ license through a recognized driver training school. Working with Bison Transport in a Canada/US Long Haul fashion.

Driver Finishing Program Summary: 

During the initial 13 weeks of training, drivers taking part in Bison’s Driver Finishing
Program (DFP) will attend orientation and work through three phases of training with an
In Cab Instructor (ICI). These phases include city, regional and long haul training. Regular
reviews are held with the ICI, a member of our Driver Development team and program
participant to maintain communication and training evaluations.

While working with the ICI, program participants will receive one on one training and
are required to do the majority of the driving and customer/dispatch communication.
All training is completed as a single driver, no team driving takes place during training.
All our tractors are equipped with bunk beds, providing accommodations for both
parties during training.

On average our long haul trips keep our professional drivers on the road 5-7 days.
During training we ensure experience is gained on Hwy 17 and in the Rockies. These
trips may extend the average days out to allow the needed transit time.
Once program participants have completed their initial 13 weeks of training, a road test
will be conducted to assess current skill level. Successful completion is required to move
onto the next phase (Stage 1) of the program.

Stage 1 will keep participants within a 600 mile radius of their home terminal. During
this stage, program participants will be in a slip seat position requiring a different unit to
be used for each trip while maintaining the expectation of being available for 24 days
per month. Successful completion of a road test is required to move onto the next
phase of the program.

Stage 2 will keep participants within a 1000 mile radius of their home terminal. During
this stage, program participants are eligible for an assigned unit. The option of slip seat
also remains available. Successful completion of a road test is required to move onto the
next phase of the program which will remove all operating radius restrictions.
