Location: Nashville, Tennessee
M&A Supply Company, Inc., a wholesale HVAC distributor, is seeking a full-time driver/warehouse associate that will be based at their Nashville branch location. Any candidate for this position must have a current DOT medical card and must be able to pass random DOT drug screens. If you do not have a current DOT card, please do not apply for this position. The largest size truck this person would drive is a 26,000 GVWR straight truck. This position will require you to leave the state of Tennessee (to northern Alabama) occasionally, so a current DOT card is required. Please note that this position will involve loading & unloading the trucks, in addition to driving, so please do not apply for this position if you cannot also operate a forklift and possess the willingness to do so.
Essential Duties & Responsibilities
The primary responsibility will be delivering equipment to our customers in one of the company's delivery trucks. However, when drivers are not delivering they are required to do general warehouse work as instructed by the Operations Manager, including tasks which require the use of a forklift, pallet jack, and other warehouse equipment.
Minimum Qualifications (Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities)
Employees in this position must be able to drive vehicles up to a 26,000 GVWR straight truck with a 26' box and must duly licensed to do so in the state of Alabama. Employees must be able to operate hand-held, touch-screen devices ("tablets") and Blue Tooth devices (for making and receiving telephone calls while on delivery). Associates must also be able to perform various tasks using a computer, such as emailing, using a digital time clock, and utilizing the company's ERP system as required. This position may require employees to provide quotes, process orders, and perform various inquires using our software system, so computing skills are critical to succeeding in this position.
Physical Demands and Work Environment
Drivers must be in excellent physical condition. They must be able to lift a minimum of 75 pounds, climb on and off the trucks and be able to bend and stoop, as well as sit and/or stand long periods of time. Employees must be able to work in environments--including inside our trucks, in warehouses, at job sites, and outdoors--where the temperature may exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The employee must also possess the physical ability to safely and properly operate our trucks, forklifts, and any other warehouse equipment as needed.
This position will be paid hourly (approximately 40 hours per week), with a minimum starting rate of $17.50 per hour, though more experienced candidates will be eligible for a higher rate of pay. This position will be eligible for PTO & medical/dental/vision coverage within 90 days of employment.
