Driver Chose Safety-Focused Stevens Transport
While searching for a new career path that would supply the freedom he was looking for, Miller Jean came across the transportation industry. After much research, Miller knew it was the right road for him to travel.
Attending Truck Driving School
Miller attended truck driving school for a Class A CDL at Roadmaster Drivers School in Orlando, FL. Miller enjoyed the training he received and believed he was well prepared for the next steps in his truck driving career. Miller graduated from Roadmaster on February 27, 2016, and searched for a transportation company that would become his new home.
“I read everything about every transportation company, and quickly decided to join the Stevens team,” Miller said. “The number one thing that impressed me about Stevens was having safety as their number one priority. Once I heard that I submitted my application, and the rest is history!”
Starting His Trucking Career
On March 14, 2016, Miller attended orientation at Stevens Transport headquarters in Dallas, and was on the road with his trainer three days later. “My trainers were amazing,” Miller said. “I really enjoyed getting experience behind the wheel before I went out by myself. My trainers also passed along very valuable knowledge to me during that time, and I still apply all of their teachings today!”
After graduating from OTR training, Miller continued his trucking career as a company driver and even made the decision to become a trainer. “I was in a trainer position before I became a truck driver, and really enjoyed teaching new and interested students all about the industry I was in,” Miller said. “When I found out that I was able to do that in my new profession, I quickly jumped on the opportunity because I want to pass along the knowledge that I have to the next generation of truck drivers.”
Becoming A Trucking Business Owner
In January of 2017, with the help of the Contractor Division, Miller opened his independent business and signed to lease a 2015 Freightliner. “I always wanted to own my own business,” Miller said. “I’m happy that I’m able to achieve this goal with the help of Stevens Transport, and have plans to hopefully buy my own truck in 5-6 months!”
Today, Miller can be found delivering loads with his students in the contiguous 48 states. His favorite place to travel to is California because of the beautiful scenery. “California has the best scenery in the entire country,” Miller said. “The mountains and the trees are a sight to see, and the openness of the state is breathtaking.”
Miller is an excellent driver who is always willing to lend a helping hand, whether it’s to his students or other drivers. I can’t wait to see him progress in his business, and I know he will achieve great things.
– Johnny Cox, Driver Manager
Miller’s Driver Manager, Johnny Cox, spoke highly of his hard-working driver. “Miller is a great asset to both my fleet and the company,” Johnny said. “He is an excellent driver who is always willing to lend a helping hand, whether it’s to his students or other drivers. I can’t wait to see him progress in his business, and I know he will achieve great things.”
When Miller is not driving on the road, he can be found spending time with his two children in Orlando. “My children are very understanding of my profession,” Miller said. “They know the sacrifices I make for them, and the reward is worth it in the end.”
Congratulations on all of your success Miller and we can’t wait to see what you will accomplish in the future!
