One of our core values at Blackhawk Transport is supporting an individual’s entrepreneurial spirit. If you are a driver or working in the transportation industry and want to move into the management and administrative ranks, contact us about our customized management trainee program.  

We identify three to four aspiring individuals to join our management intern training program each year. Each participant spends time in all operating departments learning the detailed and complex interaction of all core functions of the dedicated freight trucking business. Program participants choose a project that links their interests and future career aspirations with a list of organizational needs. Participants lead the project from development to implementation and present their final work to company executives and owners.

Management Trainee Program

Each management intern works with leadership to develop additional opportunities for leadership and growth in their chosen specialty. Our management training interns are ultimately placed in the organization's middle management and administrative roles. 

We currently have staff working in HR, IT, safety, and account management roles who came through the management training program. We have office locations in Wisconsin and Texas, as well as driver management and customer account manager locations throughout the U.S. Depending on your background and skills, we can customize a program specific to your interest and location.


The Blackhawk Transport Culture

Blackhawk Transport's culture starts with our values. "Together We Go Far" isn't just a catchphrase; it’s a way of life. We work collaboratively as a team and as a family to support our customers and one another. We believe hard work should be fun and rewarding. We prioritize the safety of our drivers and treat one another with respect. 

Trainee Testimonials

The management trainee program was a great start for me here at Blackhawk. I was introduced to all of the departments to get a good understanding for how important each one is, as well as the fantastic people within them. Focusing on learning the people and the culture from the beginning was huge for me, especially being new to the transportation industry. I could easily see that there are many different career paths that I could take depending on what was best for me, whether that be operations, safety, accounting, etc. The management trainee program is just a start, but it sets the table for a very exciting future!
