About this Opportunity
As a Truck Driver, you'll be responsible for transporting primarily finished product and raw materials to and from suppliers, manufacturing sites, distribution centers, and, occasionally, directly to the end customer.

You'll also ensure proper care and usage of equipment, as well as compliance to Federal Motor Carrier Safety and Department of Transportation regulations.

What You'll Do

  • Electronically communicate data that may be required in Mobile Data Terminals located in the truck. You'll also participate in Driver pod sessions, training, meetings, etc.
  • Maintain a professional image that promotes the corporate culture and community of Herman Miller.
  • Perform additional responsibilities as requested to achieve business objectives.
  • Support overall department goals related to on-time/predictable performance, costs, and equipment utilization. You will remain flexible around scheduled work hours to support the daily completion of dispatches/routes, Saturday production, and attendance at team meetings and training sessions.
  • Transport components and products to and from Herman Miller suppliers, manufacturing sites, and distribution centers. You may occasionally make deliveries to the end customer.
  • Work safely and meet all federal, state, and local regulations regarding licensing, paperwork (pre/post vehicle inspection, Driver Log, etc.), and roadway/equipment requirements. You will consistently be exposed to close dock work between docks and trailer pads.
