Frito-Lay is hiring a Full-Time Class A CDL Regional Truck Driver for the Lynchburg, VA Traffic Center.
This position requires a Class A CDL. We offer comprehensive health, dental, vision, and legal benefits. We offer an employer-funded retirement plan and a 401(k). Our drivers also enjoy paid vacation and holidays.
This is a full-time position that is responsible for safely operating a tractor/trailer to transport product to and from specified destinations while complying with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Regional Driver hours vary by assigned route. Required work hours may be up to the legal limits allowed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and may require overnight trips as well as weekend and/or holiday work. Start times will vary by route.
Our minimum requirements:
You are at least 21 years of age or older
You possess a valid Class "A" commercial driver's license
You have no DUI or DWI convictions or suspensions from a moving violation within the past 3 years
You will bid on routes using a seniority electronic bid board which keeps things fair for everyone. Start times vary by route and most routes will have you home after every shift.
We asked current Frito-Lay drivers what frequent tasks you should expect when you come aboard, and here is what they had to say:
You will safely operate a tractor/trailer (usually a newer automatic Volvo or Freightliner) and transport products to and from specified destinations in accordance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
We unload trailers -- this is manual and can involve palletized loading/unloading but usually will require the use of a two-wheeler. This is a physical job.
You will transport chips, dips, and more to and from distribution centers, rural storage units, and other Frito-Lay traffic centers.
You will obtain signature of receipt, pick up returns, and complete logs and other paperwork related to deliveries and review invoices and/or manifests
You will use a tablet or an onboard (dash) computer
We have regular contact with our customers, sales drivers, and dispatch, so you can expect talk to people at various points throughout the day or night
Like the rest of our drivers, you will be responsible for pre- and post-trip truck inspections.
Your work hours may be up to the legal limits allowed by the FMCSA and may require the occasional overnight trip as well as weekend and/or holiday work
We run routes 24/7 and DOT hours vary slightly by location
We have to be honest with you: there will be hard days that involve a lot of walking and lifting over your head, but we believe the rewards are worth it, and our drivers agree.
Given our large salaries and phenomenal benefits, you might wonder what will give you an edge when you apply. Here's an idea of what Frito-Lay drivers expect of one another:
Safety Focused: your mind is focused on safety when you operate vehicles by practicing defensive driving. We have a sterling reputation as transportation professionals on the road.
Coachable and Communicative: you can take feedback and adjust how you do things in the spirit of cooperation, safety, and efficiency. Communication is a two-way street. Did you encounter a safety hazard? Were their issues with your delivery? Your honest feedback is valued here.
Flexibility: the schedule you work won't be set, but instead it will vary week to week. Everyone at Frito-Lay works weekends and holidays.
Self-Motivated: our drivers are known across the company as hard workers, showing up and working until the job is done all with attention to detail (e.g. when you review weight limits and count cases)
