What makes CDS great? Our People!

We believe that each employees individual contributions make us the #1 last mile delivery company in the country. We are currently hiring permanent Delivery Associates in both of our Illinois locations(Lisle and Chicago)

Description

As a Delivery Associate for CDS you would follow standard company procedures and safety requirements while delivering packages for our client, Amazon, in a timely and efficient manner. The Delivery Associate role is a physical, fast-paced position that involves continual lifting, lowering and carrying of packages that weigh less than 20 lbs on average but may weigh up to 50-70 lbs. Under tight deadlines, our delivery associates safely operate cargo vans, climb in and out of a vehicle in excess of 200 times a day and walk up and down stairs as required to deliver Amazon packages to customers according to established procedures, in all weather conditions.

Compensation and Schedule

During your training period, this is a four-day-per-week delivery job, working as an employee and making a base salary of at least $600 each week, not including overtime. Once you're fully acclimated to the job and capable of completing your routes within the planned on road time, a fifth day becomes available, increasing your salary potential to $800+ per week not including overtime! Beginning after 90 days of employment, you’ll earn PTO and be eligible for our Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance plans.

Each week, you will have a stable schedule of 4 consecutive work days and 3 days off. Days are designed to be 11 hours long, including a 30-minute lunch break and two 15-minute paid breaks. However, because most of your day is spent driving and delivering, you will have the opportunity to complete your day early and still get paid the same!
