Applicants must have at least a high-school diploma, a current driver's license, and due to State regulations, must be 21 years or older. Previous experience in similar settings is strongly preferred, but not required. A patient, calm and positive attitude is essential to our mission.

A criminal background check and a negative drug screen is required for initial employment. In addition, your driving record must be acceptable to our insurance company.
