CDL Class A Drivers, we want to hear from you!
There’s never been a better time to join Team WestAir
Here at WestAir, one of the biggest factors in our overall success is our people. Yes, high-quality gases are important, but let’s be real: they’re not going to test, package, and deliver themselves, right? As such, we believe in not only finding the best people possible to make up our teams, but also in doing everything in our power to enable them to be successful, motivated, and happy in their roles. Because after all, happy employees are the first (and often fastest) step to happy customers.
So, if you hold a current Class A CDL with hazmat endorsement and live in (or want to live in, at least) Southern California, we may have just the job you’re looking for.
If that’s all you need to know, make sure to go ahead and apply online today or email us directly at HR@westairgases.com with your resume and a few sentences about you. If you’re still wondering about if WestAir could be a good fit, keep reading!
Take a look at a recent (but super sped up) morning at our National City location:
We are a family-owned business that was founded right here in San Diego. A number of our employees have been here for over 30 years, which really speaks to how fulfilling the work and its environment really is. Of course, this isn’t to say it’s all easy - no job is ever 100% easy - but rather that we do our best to make sure that the last thing our employees have to worry about is our company culture. For our drivers, this means starting the day with a clear outlook on their tasks, sufficient support to achieve them, and of course, coworkers who go out of their way to make you look good (some might call this teamwork!).
Unlike many other standard driving jobs, this definitely is one that will keep you on your feet! The average daily amount of ‘windshield time’ that you can expect in this role is about 3 hours. As for the rest of the time? You’ll be loading your truck (with the help of the team here, of course), coordinating unloading at your destination, and otherwise taking end-to-end ownership of your deliveries.
If this kind of autonomy and control is what you dream for in your work, then this could be your perfect job.
A few more details about our Class A with Hazmat job in California:
● You’ll spend your days ensuring that all orders are routed efficiently and delivered on time – through your own efforts of loading and driving and also with the help of the team
● Daily delivery tasks will also require confirming that the weight and ratios are all correct (don’t forget the placards!)
● Knowing how to operate a forklift is essential as you’ll be using it at our warehouse as it’ll be a major part of your loading process
Some essential qualifications we’ll need from you:
● Class A commercial license with Hazmat Endorsement and valid medical certificate
● 2+ years of commercial driving experience
In addition to being a great place to work, WestAir also offers competitive health benefits for employees and their families. We also believe in the importance of continuing education, so we offer a tuition reimbursement program for relevant training and other opportunities for professional development.
Of course, we know how important it is to balance your work and your life, so we are proud to offer a generous paid time off package, plus a number of paid holidays. For our drivers in particular, we offer a 24h schedule and standby pay. Not to mention quarterly safety bonuses that are an even better way to be rewarded for what you're already doing: driving safely!
But don’t just take our word for it. Check out what a few of our current drivers had to say:
“The reason I like working at WestAir is because of the great teamwork and support. The workload is distributed equally and fairly among drivers with a great work schedule.”
“The reason I am happy to work for WestAir is that I’m thankful that the company opened the door for me when I was unemployed. I was given the opportunity to succeed in what I specialize. If you are looking for job security, WestAir is the place.”
“WestAir has well-trained employees and on the cutting edge of technology. WestAir always looks for ways to improve the quality of service to our customers and takes care of employees. A happy employee is a productive employee.”
