Navy Vet Joins Stevens For His Next Mission

When Cameron Valentinsantos returned home from his time in the United States Navy, he explored professions that he believed would give him the freedom that he had wanted. None had quite filled the bill. That was until he came to Stevens Transport.

Terrific Training, Good People & Great Communication

Cameron had been interested in truck driving before coming to Stevens. His determination to the profession led him to learn how to drive a truck from others after hours of his regular job. He saw an advertisement for Stevens in the local newspaper and called to find out more information about the Stevens CDL training program. “Kendra [Kay], my Driver Recruiter, was very helpful and answered all of the questions I had. She also called me once a week to make sure I was prepared and to answer any last-minute questions I may have had, which was amazing.”

GI Bill Covered Truck Driving School Cost

Kendra also informed Cameron that his truck driving school tuition was going to be covered through his post-GI Bill Education Fund, one of the many Veterans programs that Stevens offers to military members and veterans. Upon learning that, Cameron immediately decided that Stevens Transport would be his new forever home and got scheduled for the next available class in August of 2017.

“My Trainers Were Outstanding.”

Cameron enjoyed the training that he received from Stevens and absorbed all of the information that each of his trainers taught him. “The training was difficult, but it was overall a very enriching and rewarding process. All of my trainers were outstanding, and I still use everything that they taught me to this day!”

Today, you can find Cameron delivering loads across the 48 contiguous states. As for his future plans, Cameron has no intentions of leaving Stevens Transport. “It’s tough being away from my wife and two children sometimes. But I know the sacrifices I am making today are only making my family, along with my bonds with Stevens, are going to be stronger in the long run.”

This job has been the most rewarding I have ever had. And it will be rewarding to you as well.

When asked if there is any advice that he wanted to pass on to new drivers, Cameron said, “This profession is not a normal 8-5 job. It’s a lifestyle change. Make sure that you research everything and ask as many questions as you can. This job has been the most rewarding I have ever had. And it will be rewarding to you as well.”

When Cameron is not behind the wheel, you’ll find him spending time with his family at different outings, pursuing outdoor activities, and engaging in renovation projects.

Thank you for all of your hard work Cameron and we wish you continued success in the future!
