We’re proud to be one of the select few trucking companies to participate in the exclusive Post-9/11 GI Bill® program. The Veterans Administration just accredited US, and we’re excited to share more information about the program and how it could benefit you, the military veteran.
After you come out of service, finding the right career is stressful. That’s why our new Post-9/11 GI Bill® Apprenticeship Program could be just what you need to relieve your anxiety and start earning great pay fast.
What is this exclusive GI Bill® Apprenticeship Program at U.S. Xpress?
The Apprenticeship Program at U.S. Xpress allows veterans like you coming out of active duty to receive stipends directly from the Veteran Administration to your checking account — on top of your regular driver pay.
If you qualify, you could receive up to $25,700 from the V.A. over a 24-month period. Added to your regular driver pay, you could earn up to $82,000 your first year at U.S. Xpress.
Importantly, this program allows you to start receiving V.A. stipends from the moment you begin training, so you’ll be able to pay the bills while you transition into your career at U.S. Xpress.
Why does U.S. Xpress offer the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Apprenticeship Program?
We fought long and hard to have the V.A. accredit our company for the GI Bill® program. Why? Because, we wanted more veterans like you on our fleet.
But why? Because, we believe veterans deserve more. We value your work ethic, your loyalty and your attention to detail. The military teaches the same stuff we stand for, so we find veterans tend to be the kind of people we want driving our company.
Should you apply for our Post-9/11 GI Bill® Apprenticeship Program?
This program is designed to help you get a higher paying job when you come home, so you don’t have to struggle paying your own bills or supporting loved ones.
Not every company is friendly to veterans. And frankly, we don’t understand why. Because we believe veterans present an advantage to the trucking industry. With this in mind, we provide more opportunities for military to help you transition from active service to civilian life.
But don’t take our word for it…
