Learn about our company-sponsored paid CDL A driver truck driving school program and the Ginsberg’s Team in our own drivers’ words!
Meet Nick and Ed, our dedicated instructors for future CDL A drivers. Their role is to provide personalized training to aspiring truck drivers, combining classroom sessions with 1 on 1 on-the-road practice. Our team of highly skilled and experienced trainers is committed to delivering a comprehensive CDL A training program that emphasizes theoretical understanding and practical road skills, meeting all DOT requirements. They are genuinely passionate about their work and find immense gratification in witnessing trainees, who start with no prior experience, grow in confidence, knowledge, and proficiency to pursue a successful career as commercial drivers. This is the true driving force behind our trainers’ dedication.
As a full time driver trainer, Nick has been integral to the TPR driver training process getting drivers prepared to obtain their Class A in a few months, which is impressive! Nick’s duties include often being the first one in the door at 3:30 AM in order to facilitate dispatch, then he focuses on training. Nick works with trainees to become experienced with road test prep, DOT pre-trip inspections, TPR training and documentation, and on-the-road training. Nick also has a great military career in the US Army Infantry including 3 solo parachute jumps, 1 Afghanistan tour (as a dog handler), and 1 Iraq tour, and was selected for Army Recon Scout Platoon.
Ed Snow is one of our tenured commercial drivers, who has advanced through different departments within Ginsberg’s Foods. From the Night Warehouse team, to out on the road as a CDL A driver, and a driver trainer giving on-the-road training for future Ginsberg’s professional commercial drivers. For those who have had the pleasure to work with Ed, they know he’s the consummate professional! Ed continues to excel as a delivery driver and trainer with his performance, service, and focus on safety. Ed emulates the Transportation culture with a strong focus on respect, communication, and service.
Our company’s paid training program for obtaining a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) will cover all the necessary skills and knowledge required to pass the Class A road test. This includes mastering specific maneuvers like offset backing, parallel parking, conducting thorough vehicle inspections according to Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, understanding DOT log regulations, preparing for road courses, and learning how to couple and uncouple trailers. Additionally, trainees will undergo certified safety training provided by the Smith System.
It is important to note that this program is physically demanding, as our drivers and trainees are required to manually unload heavy products at customer locations using tools like hand trucks and ramps. They must also navigate various surfaces, inclines, steps, and stairs while delivering the products to the appropriate areas within the customer’s place of business, such as dry storage, refrigerated storage, or frozen storage.
We fully stock our warehouse with a wide range of food items, including proteins, produce, desserts, snacks, and seafood, but we do not handle alcohol or tobacco products.
