Location: Yakima
Posted on: May 9, 2019

Job Description:

We're putting our money where our mouth is, offering a signing bonus of $7,500 to qualified technicians. To qualify for the bonus, we're looking for a Class A or B CDL as well as diesel industry certifications

Don't have your CDL or Freightliner certifications? While you may not qualify for the bonus, don't worry, we are looking for technicians like you and we have programs in place to help you grow.

Benefits are a big part of your total compensation package. We strive to offer our employees competitive benefits to accompany their wages. The list below highlights our current benefits offerings.


FNW is self-insured and uses the Blue Cross/Blue Shield network. The healthcare plan is administered by a third party administrator, Regence Group Administrators (RGA). For Hawaii employees only, the healthcare plan is administered by Kaiser Permanente. FNW offers a bundled health plan package for all eligible employees; which includes Medical, Dental, Vision and Pharmacy Benefits.


The HSA is designed to work in conjunction with the high deductible health plan and is administered by Bank of America. An HSA is a savings account that the company and employee contribute to.


This program offers all employees an opportunity to save for their retirement. Employees can contribute up to 60% of their pre-tax earnings, and the company will match dollar for dollar of your contributions up to 3% of your income.


FNW offers vacation time off to eligible employees. The amount of awarded vacation is dependent upon tenure with the company. Eligibility to take accrued vacation begins after 12 months of employment.


FNW also offers Paid Time Off (PTO) to eligible employees for unexpected illnesses, emergencies, a day off to relax or for any other reason and/or as per state law/s. Check with Human Resources to discuss eligibility requirements; our PTO benefit is in compliance with the respective state paid sick leave laws.


FNW offers eligible employees an employer-paid basic group term life policy equal to one times the employee's annual salary. This benefit is free to you!


Eligible employees may also purchase additional life insurance for themselves and their dependents.


This program provides confidential counseling, assessments, and referrals to a variety of resources to eligible employees and their dependents that may have personal or professional concerns. Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and members receive up to 3 sessions of free consultation annually per person.


FNW offers the following paid holidays to eligible employees: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.


FNW offers full-time employees up to three (3) consecutive work days due to the loss of a close family member.


Short-term and/or Long-term Disability is available through a payroll deduction to eligible employees. This plan serves as an income supplement for those employees who cannot work due to a non-work related injury or illness for a certain period of time. Employees may choose coverage levels within the plan to best meet their needs and may voluntarily elect short-term, long-term disability or both if they wish. For our Hawaii based employees, our temporary disability falls in line with HI TDI state requirements.


At times, we offer a signing bonus of $7,500 to qualified candidates at locations across our network. Inquire with Human Resources to see what incentive you might qualify for.


Up to $100 towards workboot replacements are made on an annual basis.


Both on-line and instructor led*, we offer our technicians access to training on the products that come in to our shop. Ongoing Factory training certifications keep you trained on all of the latest changes in technologies. *Travel may be involved for some instructor led training in which case the company covers the cost associated with that travel.


Available based on department need, we offer paid CDL training to technicians who meet insurability requirements and have the desire to earn their Commercial Driver's License.


Your work coveralls as well as safety glasses and hearing protection are provided by the company. We also provide weekly professional cleaning for coveralls.


We recognize the value of assisting its employees in furthering both their educational goals and employment opportunities within FNW. FNW is pleased to offer an Education Assistance Program to qualified employees. The program is designed to reimburse employees for certain business-related classes that are applicable to their current job or another opportunity within FNW.


FNW recognizes that your tools are your livelihood. We supply specialty tools such as as torque and impact wrenches, seal drivers and 1" drive sockets but you will also need to provide some tools of your own. FNW will support you with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) training, personal protective equipment, professionally laundered uniforms and a work boot reimbursement program.

Since trucks never stop, you must be open to work a variety of shifts, including days, evenings, nights, and weekends. Heavy equipment dealership experience definitely helps; currently reviewing mecahnics at all levels. Bring your strong mechanical aptitude, team player mentality and belief in safety first to Team FNW.

And we'll pay accordingly. We offer a competitive starting salary and benefits including healthcare, 401k with company match, paid time off, vacation and holiday pay, and education assistance. But it doesn't stop there. We have a yearly work boot incentive, OSHA approved PPE, paid life insurance, and voluntary short term and long term disability.

About Us:
Now is the time to build a career, not just get another job - and we want you to build it with us at Employer and Gordon Truck Centers. We are family-owned and operated throughout Washington, Oregon, and Hawaii, and we will put our 70 years of trucking industry experience and over 30 years in the commercial truck dealership business to work to help you train and build your way to a leadership opportunity in heavy duty diesel.
