    • Must initiate the TSA fingerprint-based background check by completing the fingerprinting process no later than the second week of class
    • Ability to lift freight and other objects of various shapes, sizes and weights (up to 50 lbs. frequently and greater than 75 lbs. occasionally); safely operate heavy equipment; move and position a converter dolly with an average weight/pull force of approximately 128 lbs.
    • Ability to safely walk and stand for extended periods of time on various surfaces that may be uneven or slippery; work in adverse weather conditions; safely reach (including above your head), bend, climb, push, pull, twist, squat and kneel as necessary to perform the job duties; safely climb in and out of a tractor cab and trailer; sit for extended periods of time in a truck tractor and/or forklift
    • Safe driving record and history
    • Pass DOT drug test and have no prior positive tests or refusals; pass a company-paid DOT physical
    • Pass a company-paid post-offer, pre-hire, screen test (physical essential functions); perform essential functions with or without an accommodation
    • Must be able to obtain a CDL-A with these endorsements: double/triple trailers, tanker and hazmat by the end of the training program
    • Availability to work a variety of shifts including days, evenings, nights and weekends; also work a designated shift prior to or following a 4-hour unpaid classroom training session
      It'd be great if you also have:
      • Forklift experience
        Be part of something big.
