Job Description

Darling Ingredients is looking to hire a Route Driver in the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana area. Are you ready to take your Class A CDL driving career to the next level with a stable worldwide company? This route delivery position earns competitive pay of $25.25 plus OT. We also offer comprehensive full-time benefits, including full medical, dental, vision, a 401(k) plan, vacation time, and more. If this sounds like the right Class A CDL driving opportunity for you, apply today!


We began as a family business in 1882 and have continued to grow into the world's leading innovative developer and producer of sustainable organic ingredients for a growing population. Headquartered in Irving, TX with regional offices in Cold Spring, KY and Des Moines, IA as well as production facilities across the U.S., we have over 10,000 employees across the globe. We repurpose and reuse rather than discarding what others might consider waste. We capture valuable ingredients and nutrients to help maximize what nature has to offer, providing components for a wide range of products that include pet food, fertilizer, and biofuel. Giving nature a second life is our second nature.

Our greatest assets are our employees. Our inclusive global workforce and their wide variety of skills, abilities, experiences, and perspectives have been critical in helping us consistently deliver best-in-class results around the world. In order to attract and retain employees who share our values of integrity, transparency, and entrepreneurship, we offer competitive pay, excellent benefits, stability, and opportunities for career growth.


As a Route Driver, you are responsible for collecting and transporting raw materials from our broad customer base back to facilities and transfer stations. Our customers range in size from small-scale butchers, grocers, and restaurants up to large-scale slaughterhouses and food processors. Driving a straight truck or a tractor-trailer, you collect materials from multiple customers along your route each day, deliver/remove collection containers from customer sites, and/or transfer bulk material from one Darling facility to another (drop/hook).

You manage your route with an onboard computer (OBC) and also keep an up-to-date backup paper log for compliance purposes. Taking responsibility for your truck, you keep it clean and complete a vehicle condition report on a daily basis. You provide exceptional professional service to all customers and follow all laws and regulations. You love that you get to hit the road for a living, while still being home every day!

  • Must be at least 21 years old
  • Authorized to work in the US
  • Valid Class A CDL with tanker endorsements
  • Good driving record
In addition, you need the following:
  • Ability to lift up to 100 lbs.
  • Ability to pass a pre-employment drug screen and background check
  • Customer service skills
Two years of experience operating a commercial vehicle in a route delivery setting and experience with truck hydraulics are preferred but multiple factors will be taken into consideration. Can you communicate clearly, both verbally and in writing? Are you highly organized with superior time management skills? Can you maintain your composure in difficult situations? Do you easily adapt to changes and work well with others? If so, you might just be perfect for this Route Driver position!


All of our route delivery drivers operate routes in their local area and are home daily. This full-time Class A CDL truck driving job also has the opportunity to work regular overtime.


We understand your time is valuable, and that is why we have a very quick and easy application process. If you feel that you would be right for this Class A CDL job, please fill out our initial 3-minute, mobile-friendly application. We look forward to meeting you!
