We’ve designed our orientation program to make your transition to a successful Oakley Owner Operator as smooth as possible. Naturally, there are the standard procedures you’ll find at any company (paperwork, physical exam, drug testing, safety training, etc.).  But we also focus on getting to know you, and vice-versa, so our working relationship is strong and productive from Day One. Better yet, we’ve supplemented our hands-on technical training with a unique Road Trainer Program: For your first few days on the road, an experienced Oakley driver will make his own pickups and deliveries, at the very same time as you – to be nearby and “show you the ropes” for everything from loading and unloading to customer CB Channels.  Giving you all the benefits of a Ride Along trainer without the downside of having someone else in your truck! See below for everything you’ll need for a successful orientation. And if you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to call us! (800) 662-0875
