SACS Trucking is a small, locally owned carrier located in Missoula, MT. We haul wood by-products; sawdust, chips, and shavings in chip vans servicing various sawmills within a 250 mile radius of Missoula. Drivers work out of Missoula and are home after every shift.
After a short paid training period with our senior drivers, you will work the early afternoon shift to start. As you gain seniority your leave time will get earlier in the day. During training you will become familiar with the mills and their locations; Deerlodge, Seeley Lake, Columbia Falls, Thompson Falls, St. Regis, Moyie Springs, Townsend, and Livingston.
We are looking for drivers with two years of CDL experience and a clean MVR for the past three years. After training you are paid the same ton/mile rate as our senior drivers. We follow all FMCSA rules and insist that you adhere to them also.
As a new driver you will normally start your shift in the early afternoon and shifts vary from 9-12 hours. You will receive a two hour call out by dispatch and you always get 10 hours off between shifts. There is physical labor involved such as rolling tarps and loading/unloading at the mills. We drive in all conditions and you must be comfortable driving on snow and chaining up when required. We employ about 25 drivers and have our own shop that does maintenance on our equipment.
You will become eligible for our medical insurance after 60 days and the company pays a portion of the premium. Depending on the plan you choose, SACS will also contribute to a Health Savings Account in your name. After 90 days, you become eligible for holiday pay, including 3 'floating' holiday days. After one year of service you receive paid vacation and the option to pay in to a 401k plan.
