DSW IS HONORED TO OFFER PROJECT OPEN ROAD TO MAXIMIZE YOUR VA BENEFITS

DSW’s new apprenticeship program, Project Open Road, features a highly profitable, paid, on-the-job training to become a professional truck driver. It’s a smart way to make the most of your GI Bill® benefits. While you’re working for DSW, you will receive monthly VA educational benefit paychecks on top of your DSW checks.

Your dedication to service combined with your valuable experience makes you an ideal driver. We’d be proud to add you to our team.

Put your CDL to Work.

DSW is proud to launch our military apprenticeship program and has a long-standing commitment to current and former military personnel. We have been hiring veterans and veteran spouses since 1989. We will work closely with you and the VA to verify your qualifications for the program and ensure you receive the maximum benefit. We will finalize the paperwork and submit it to the VA office for approval.

  • Approved by the Department of Labor and VA
