Absolutely! We are committed to bringing as many quality van operators to the Daryl Flood team as we can. It is a wonderful career path with opportunities for advancement, to be a business owner, and to make a great living for you and your family. However, we understand the path can be expensive. That is why we have CDL school sponsorships available. All you have to do is talk to our recruiter to find out how to take advantage of our scholarship program.
