Route Delivery Driver Position (dry ice) in Houston,TX
I am the owner of American Dry Ice Company in Houston,Tx and have been since my graduation from TAMU in 2001. I was in the Corps of Cadets company B-1 and currently deliver to campus every Tue/Thrus. We sell and deliver
dry ice to customers in and around the Houston area. Business is excellent and I just received 2 weeks notice from my driver/friend that has worked for me since 09. This is a very laid back job (shorts, tennis shoes, polo) but requires a significant amount of lifting (50-60 pound blocks) daily along with driving and knowledge of Houston.
-Must have or be willing to purchase a one-ton or larger truck (flatbed or box truck preferred) F350, Chevy/Dodge 3500 etc. (Rental from me is a possibility temporarily)
-Must be well groomed and polite to customers
-Must pay for own gas, commercial insurance, phone, truck (this is a contract driver position) not an employee
-Must pay your own taxes, no health insurance is provided
-Must be available to work M-F between the hours of 7-5 but these will vary and usually only require 25-35 hours a week, any extra work also pays extra (sales, emergency deliveries)
-Driver is paid per delivery and given a daily on-call pay for being available to work
-Driver may have another night job or night school
-Pay has averaged between $40-55,000 and can increase if the driver wants to find new customers or work evening/emergency deliveries
-Must submit to possible background check, drug test, and have a clean driving record
-Laid back shorts and short sleeve shirt job with set deliveries every week in the Houston area (40-60 usually) per week
