Full-Time Delivery Driver from $15/hour to $18/hour
Blue Nova Logistics partners with Amazon to deliver Amazon Prime packages in the greater Dallas Area. We are currently seeking self-motivated, hard-working individuals to join the delivery teams at our Garland location near Jupiter Rd and Miller Rd for the afternoon/evening shift. Previous delivery experience is not required - we will teach you everything you need to know. However, you will need to be comfortable driving a 20’ delivery van - we will teach you that as well.
This is a position that requires individuals to work independently and to be self-motivated. Full-time drivers typically work 5 days per week, roughly 8 hours each shift, and week-end hours are absolutely required. We will try our best to rotate all drivers through so that some weekends are free. We provide at least 3 days of paid training at our delivery station site and on the road with veteran drivers. This job is physically demanding - you don't have to be muscle-bound, but endurance is key - both physically and mentally. All new drivers are slowly ramped-up over 3 weeks to give your body plenty of time to adjust. You will be using muscles you never knew existed. But after three months you will be in the best shape of your life!
Our motto is Excellence, Grace, and Growth – in that order. Provide excellent customer service, be gracious to each other, and look for opportunities to grow both as individuals and as a company. Performers with great attitudes will find they are quickly advanced and rewarded.
Being a team player is an absolute must. While you will spend the majority of your day alone in a van making deliveries, we work as a team and constantly support each other throughout the day. There is always someone available at the push of a button to back you up while you are on the road. Each driver belongs to a team of 8 drivers, with a team lead ensuring that all drivers receive as much support from dispatch and management as is needed. Your team will work together to provide days off for each other, cover sicknesses or emergencies, and generally just take great care of each other. There are no individual heroes - teams fail or succeed together.
If you possess a strong work ethic, want to make great pay, and have a desire to grow personally and to help others grow as well, we want you! If we select your application for an interview, we will schedule you for an interview on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday.
