New delivery driver team being selected for the Palmdale terminal. Experienced professionals wanted.

Are you looking for reliable work (COVID has us busier than ever) as a Full-Time professional delivery driver for a fast-growing company expanding into the Palmdale, CA area? We’re looking for experienced delivery drivers who have at least 1 year of recent, verifiable work history driving a step van or box truck at least 16’ in length (over 10,000 pounds GVWR).

Ideal candidates have previous experience of 6 months or more driving for UPS, FedEx Ground, FedEx Express, and/or Amazon, but we are willing to consider other delivery backgrounds as long they meet the work history and vehicle type requirements above. 

We are bringing the latest fleet of vehicles to the area, so we are looking for drivers who will take pride in driving their 2019 or 2020 model year vehicle assigned. As a Delivery Driver, you are directly responsible for safely driving a cargo van or step van to deliver boxes and envelopes (no mattresses or refrigerators to break your back delivering!) to our customers in the greater Palmdale area in a safe and timely manner.

You will be expected to deliver on average over 200 packages in a shift, and follow specific procedures as instructed for each delivery performed. This is definitely a position for people who are dependable, athletic, and energetic!

You are also responsible for ensuring that the packages are in presentable appearance when left for the customer, delivered to the correct address, and within the time allotted during your shift. Our drivers ensure that all procedures are followed and that the highest quality of service, along with their package, is being delivered to customers.

Being new to the Palmdale market, we are specifically interested in building a core group of experienced delivery drivers who will be rewarded for their skill set and work history with:


  • Starting wage of $16.50/hour.
  • Pay increases at 90 and 180 days by achieving performance standards. Performance is measured using a set of metrics, and we continually review performance ratings with our drivers as part of training and feedback. 
  • Incentives and Bonuses - we put our money where our mouth is. We truly are paying for the most professional drivers who hustle and follow our specific procedures each and every work shift.
  • Steady, reliable Full-Time work schedule centered around day shift/“1st shift” hours. (Drivers rotate weekends and holidays so you must have availability.)
  • Options to participate in the company’s health insurance plan (where we split the cost of monthly premiums with employees) after 90 days.
  • Paid time off (PTO) that starts on 1st day of work.
  • Real, identifiable advancement opportunities are available for those looking to move into a supervisor or supporting administration roles.
  • 401k plan with company matching after 1yr. of service.
  • PAID WEEKLY!

Responsibilities
  • Compile any necessary documentation related to delivery
  • Check orders before and after drop-off to make sure deliveries are completed correctly
  • Adhere to predetermined routes, schedules, and local traffic laws to ensure safe and efficient delivery
  • Assure customer satisfaction by delivering an excellent customer experience
  • Ensure the safe and efficient delivery of new products for our customers
Qualifications
  • Delivery driver or related job experience preferred
  • Valid U.S. driver’s license in your state and a clean driving record

  • Consent to a pre-employment drug screen and background check.
  • This position is a physically demanding one in which you'll be on your feet for most of the work shift. Your ability to swiftly get in and out of a vehicle over 200 times per shift, briskly walk or jog routinely, and lift up to 30 pounds occasionally is vital.

Compensation
$16 - $16.50 hourly
