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 a commercial truck driver to our team.
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 – half your days are spent driving through southern Ontario farmland (approx. 100 km radius from Toronto), collecting items from our many farm partners, and then delivering them to the warehouse. The other half of your days, you’re loading up your truck and making deliveries to some of Toronto’s best chefs and restaurants.
If that sounds good, we’re looking for a driver for approximately 40 hours per week, with a typical week covering Monday to Thursday. You’ll have lots of Fridays and every weekend off. Wages are $15/hour with eligibility for increases and benefits after a year.
You are at least 25 years of age (for insurance reasons)
You have a valid 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:
Commercial driving experience, ex. a cube van or larger
Experience doing a customer service job
Experience using a hand truck, dolly or similar equipment
Excellent knowledge of Toronto and southern Ontario driving routes
A food handler’s certificate and/or experience in food handling or distribution
