Operation Victory Program - Covenant

More than ever, military veterans are looking for careers in the trucking industry. In response to veterans’ needs, we have created a program designed specifically to meet those needs and challenges, Operation Victory. Throughout our 35+ year history of hiring and training professional drivers, we have valued the additional skills, discipline, and experience military veterans bring to this industry

Advanced Individual Training (A.I.T.)

Your AIT program is an OJT program approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs and registered with the Department of Labor. This allows veterans that are Post 9/11 GI Bill to receive BAH E-5 with dependent Chattanooga, TN rate.

For veterans with Primary Specialty 35XX, 1391, 88M, 92F, or 2T1X1 we credit 100% credit for service (one year of military experience = one year for Covenant pay).

Veterans who served in another MOS or AFSC we credit your service time at 50% (two years of military experience = one year for Covenant pay)

This credit starts once the veteran has completed their Vet 1 Initial Training and upon upgrade.

Top Pay .77 Cents per Mile without Hazmat and .80 Cents per mile with Hazmat. There is also a $1,000 minimum pay per week if the driver is out all week and available for dispatch.
