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.

This position may be a great fit if you enjoy getting up and at ‘em to start your day (on time for this position is at work and clocking in to start at 6AM), if you already have an active lifestyle and value putting physical activity into your daily routine (get paid to workout instead of paying for a gym membership… what’s not to like?), and if you enjoy challenging yourself to be better and more efficient with how you work (internally driven competition).

Pay starts at $15/hr and qualify for health insurance after 90 days. Exceptional performers are eligible for a 5% raise at 6-months and 1-year.
