TORONTO JOBS

Position: Truck Driver - $19.55/hour to start
Company: 100km Foods
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Type: Contract

Description:

How about driving a truck filled with Ontario’s most delicious, farm-fresh food, as part of a team that’s trying to make the world a more fair and more delicious place?

If the idea of good food, good people, and independence on the road sound good to you, we’d love to meet you.

We’re 100km Foods and we’re looking to add 1 commercial truck driver to our team. This is a full-time position on a contract basis to the end of December 2021, with the opportunity for permanent hire in January, 2022.

Why Work @ 100km Foods

100km Foods started to connect local farmers with urban markets. Through us, farmers get access to large, urban markets and urban people get access to delicious, farm-fresh food. It’s a win-win for all involved.

We deal fairly with farmers, allowing them to set their own prices, and we seek to treat all of our employees, suppliers, clients, and community with a high standard of fairness and cooperation. That led us to become a certified B Corp (ever heard of that?).

Working with us, you’ll get to be a part of that purpose. You’ll work with great people who care about what they do, who bring a positive attitude to work, and who like to have fun.

You’ll also have freedom to do your job and solve problems independently. In fact, the best drivers are the ones who can creatively resolve day-to-day problems – a crop that’s been delayed or an item that was left behind – keeping both farmers and clients happy.

You’ll also get lots of variety – approximately half your work week will be spent driving through southern Ontario farmland (approx. 100 km radius from Toronto), collecting items from our many farm partners, and then returning them to the warehouse. The other half of your week, you’re loading up your truck and making deliveries to some of Ontario's best chefs and restaurants.

If that sounds good, we’re looking for a contract driver for approximately 40 hours per week until the end of December, 2021. Dependent on business levels, there may be an opportunity for a Full Time Permanent position in 2022.

Wages start at $19.55/hour

Perks of the job include:

  • Medical and Dental Benefits, fully paid by the employer, after 3 months
  • At cost purchasing account for employees to buy groceries for themselves and their family at wholesale prices.

Qualifications

Absolutely essential:

  • You are at least 25 years of age (for insurance reasons)
  • Minimum 3 year commercial driving experience verifiable from a previous employer and/or insurance company
  • You have a valid G Ontario driver's license with a clean abstract
  • You can lift and carry up to 50 pounds
  • You are fluent in English

Ideally, you also have experience in these areas:
