RATP Dev USA has hired a full-time recruiter for this location. Part of our training for new drivers includes the CDL training and certification process. We have also partnered with trucking schools to use their services as needed. And finally, we have partnered with the city to give employee bonuses and used agency-supplied CARES Act funding to assist as needed.
