  • The actual paper application is very thorough. You will be asked to list your relevant past employment for the past 10 years and all driving experience you have had. Coming in person also gives you a chance to know us and see our facilities. After your application has been approved, you’ll be given a date for a road test. Following that, you will receive a hire date, be given some orientation before going out on the road, then placed with someone for orientation to learn our particular procedures.
  • You can call any time during normal business hours (after hours we sometimes answer, too!). Call toll-free 844-THE-ZTEAM (844-843-9832). A specially trained member of The Z-Team will answer your call.
