    About Us

     

    Gordon Food Service is the largest, privately held foodservice distributor in North America.  The best restaurants and food service locations trust us to deliver their products promptly and safely every single day.  Our family-owned company has a history of developing great people – and our people are what set us apart.  Every person we hire is important and we are proud to have built the kind of company that both develops careers and creates lasting friendships.

     

    About You:

     

    You are an independent, self-reliant person who appreciates working in an environment that rewards accuracy and efficiency while engaging with our customers face to face.  You are physically fit and can’t imagine being stuck in an office – physical work energizes you and being out on the road is your thing.  You would love to be part of an organization that finally delivers on the promise of opportunity.  Opportunity for professional development, advancement, productivity-based bonuses, and profit sharing.  Check, check, check and check.

     

    About the Opportunity:

     

    Delivering more than just food, our drivers are a critical part of building relationships with our customers.  We are hiring for a full-time, experienced Class 1 driver.  Day shifts start between 4am and 6am and night shifts start between 4pm and 6pm.  This is not your typical driving job.   70% is spent unloading and delivering products to our customers while 30% of the shift is spent driving and operating company-owned vehicles. As a Class 1 Delivery Driver, you are also a Delivery Service Representative, giving you the unique opportunity to present the Gordon Food Service brand and service to our customers through courteous, on-time and accurate deliveries.

    • Providing exceptional service to build and maintain quality customer relationships
    • Manually sorting and unloading food products and hand-wheeling them into the customer locations with the use of ramps and occasionally stairs (approx. 600 - 800 cases/shift)
    • Operating straight trucks or trailers safely and professionally to transport goods and materials over urban, short inter-urban and rural routes
    • Conducting routine pre/post-trip truck inspections and maintaining accurate records of delivery routes, temperature logs, count sheets and incident reporting 
    • Performing product delivery verification at the customer location and maintaining customer invoices

     

     

    Skills, Knowledge and Ability Required:

     

     

    • Valid Class 1 driver’s license with a clean commercial driver’s abstract
    • Physically fit and able to repeatedly lift, stack, pull and carry heavy items (up to 60 lb)
    • Strong communication and customer service skills with English fluency
    • Previous professional driving experience is preferred
    • Ability to work in a variety of weather, temperature and road conditions

     

     

    Starting Wage: Up to $30.40/hr + bonuses every 6 months

    Average Pay for Performance is $30-$35/hr++

    $1000 Signing Bonus for All New Class 1 Drivers (Payable After Completing 6 Months)

     

    We offer our employees:

     

     

    • Profit sharing, bonuses, and employee discounts
    • 100 % paid MSP and excellent health, dental, and insurance coverage
    • Company matched retirement plan
