There is an increasing demand for hard working individuals interested in a long-term career with potential for advancement. Rumpke offers paid training for many positions, including CDL drivers and mechanics. 

CDL Driver Training Program
Rumpke started a professional driver training program to help grow its team. Since the program’s inception, hundreds of individuals have secured their Class B CDL and started driving for Rumpke.

Unlike many CDL training programs which cost thousands of dollars, Rumpke’s driver trainee program is a full-time paid position. Individuals receive classroom and in-field training. Rumpke covers all training costs, and participants earn raises for each milestone achieved.

One recent trainee wrote, “I’ve been trying to get my CDL for 21 years, and I finally did it with the help of Rumpke.”
