Company Overview

Perhaps we do something a bit odd (collecting discarded food scraps) when compared to other companies. But, the job itself is not unique. In fact, the job is the same in function - picking stuff up and dropping stuff off - as any other delivery driver position you might find on Indeed.

The people who excel at CompostNow don’t work for a paycheck. They say things like, “I could make more money doing something else, but there’s more to work than money.” “I work here because I wanted something different.” “It’s nice to not be yelled at.” “It’s nice to know more about the company as a whole.” “It’s nice that leadership cares about me as an individual and asks me for my thoughts.”

People work at CompostNow because we give people the benefit of the doubt, we strive for operational excellence, and we treat people as adults. We hold high expectations of ourselves and one another. We choose to grind through with the right people rather than have it easier with people who don’t share the same standards.

Shifts start at 3 AM and end 8-10 hours later. This schedule isn't for everyone. Drivers love "knowing I'm getting my work done while the city sleeps." It also means you get in and out faster without having to fight with other drivers on the road. You get to see the stars at night and the sunrise every morning. You get done early enough to get other things done before businesses close or school ends for the day.

Pay starts at $17/hr and qualify for health insurance after 90 days. Exceptional performers are eligible for a 5% raise at 6-months and 1-year.
